SPACE sequence is single slab 3D TSE sequence with slab selective, variable excitation pulse.
This sequence enables acquisition of high resolution 3D datasets with contrasts similar to those obtained from 2D T2-weighted, T1-weighted, proton density and dark fluid protocols at 1.5T and 3T within a clinically acceptable timeframe and without SAR limitations.


Clinical Applications

  • Brain survey to visualize minute lesions with 3D scanning (e.g. Multiple sclerosis, cranial nerves)
  • MR cholangiopancreatography with navigator based SPACE
  • Pelvic diseases
  • High resolution proton density weighted images of the knee

Features & Benefits


  • When you combine SPACE with Tim’s Parallel Imaging (SENSE and GRAPPA), you can acquire high-resolution 3D images within a shorter timeframe.
  • 3D isotropic data set allows retrospective reformatting to view multiple orientations of the anatomical area being examined.
  • Low SAR

General Requirements

  • MAGNETOM Amira
  • MAGNETOM Sempra
