Compressed Sensing GRASP-VIBEBeyond speed. Beyond motion.

With Compressed Sensing GRASP-VIBE, you can expand the patient population eligible for abdominal MRI. Patients who cannot hold their breath or follow breathing commands, including those with dementia and hearing impairments, children1, or multi-morbid patients, can now undergo high-resolution dynamic abdominal imaging. With the push of a button, Compressed Sensing GRASP-VIBE’s intelligent reconstruction and processing framework instantly recognizes different phases of liver dynamics, automatically labels them, and outputs only the clinically relevant information.

  • Perform push-button, free-breathing liver dynamics in clinical routine
  • Overcome timing challenges in dynamic imaging and respiratory artifacts
  • Expand the patient population eligible for abdominal MRI

Features & Benefits

Compressed Sensing GRASP-VIBE enables dynamic contrast-enhanced abdominal exams with no breath holds. The acquisition is performed in one continuous run using a golden-angle stack-of-stars radial scheme that gives robustness towards motion and the flexibility to choose the temporal resolution, which can even vary over the duration of the scan. Reconstruction is performed using a Compressed Sensing GPU-accelerated iterative algorithm with per voxel through-time regularization for further improved quality. The combination of features enables free-breathing abdominal exams with both robust diagnostic image quality and the high temporal resolution required to capture the dynamic phases of contrast enhancement.

Additional features:

  • Auto Bolus Detection
  • Configuration of exam phases in terms of start time relative to the auto-detected bolus arrival, duration and temporal resolution
  • AutoLabeling of relevant phases (pre-contrast, (multiple) arterial, portal-venous and delayed)
  • Self-gating for further reduction of residual motion blur
  • Inline Reconstruction using GPU acceleration allows access to the images in just minutes; no need to export data to external research servers
  • Protocols for the abdomen
  • Compressed Sensing GRASP-VIBE includes FREEZEit
