GRACE (GeneRAlized breast speCtroscopy Exam) is a Single Voxel Spectroscopy technique optimized for breast spectroscopy.


Clinical Applications

  • Additional information in characterization of breast lesions seen in MR leading to better diagnosis
  • Follow-up of breast lesions after chemotherapy

Features & Benefits


  • The technique contains a special lipid suppression pulse and a water reference detection (to visualize the choline ratio)
  • Spectral suppression pulses for lipid or water
  • Lipid signal is suppressed by spectral RF pulse in every average of the measurement.
  • Online central frequency correction for reduction of motion related artifacts
  • Movement of thorax causes frequency shift, inline implementation of frequenzy correction, no additional user interaction is required

General Requirements

  • Biograph mMR
  • MAGNETOM Amira
  • MAGNETOM Prisma
  • MAGNETOM Skyra
  • MAGNETOM Verio
