Advanced WARP

Advanced WARP1 comprises the artifact reduction techniques offered by WARP in addition to the slice phase encoding method SEMAC. This adds the benefit of correcting through-plane distortions and allows for more detailed evaluation (or visualization) of tissue surrounding orthopedic implants.
Advanced WARP especially aids the detection of post-operative clinical conditions in the case of total joint replacements and helps to expand your MRI services in the field of orthopedic imaging.

Features & Benefits


  • Advanced WARP1 includes the following artifact reduction techniques:
  • Slice Encoding for Metal Artifact Correction (SEMAC) technique for full distortion correction, in- and through-plane
  • High-bandwidth RF pulses
  • High readout gradient amplitude
  • High-bandwidth IR-preparation for robust fat suppression (high-bandwidth STIR)
  • View Angle Tilting (VAT) technique for in-plane distortion correction



  • Efficient correction of bulk metal artifacts2
  • Efficient workflow: Ready-to-use optimized protocols. Integrated Dot workflow with single-click changes to a scan strategy optimized for implant patients
  • Robust image quality and fewer repeated scans, ensuring high patient throughput
  • Potential to diagnose clinical conditions such as prosthesis loosening, infections, inflammations, and implant failure

General Requirements
