Compressed SensingBeyond speed.

Siemens - MRI - Compressed Sensing

Currently, even with state-of-the-art MRI technologies, we have reached the plateau when it comes to sampling speed. For abdominal1 and cardiac imaging, this limitation translates into imaging over multiple breath-holds, making it extremely challenging to examine severely ill patients.

Compressed Sensing heralds the paradigm shift in the clinical practice of Cardiac and Body imaging. Acquire only what is necessary to enable the imaging of moving organs at unprecedented resolutions. Compressed Sensing Cardiac Cine offers a synergistic enhancement to parallel imaging with sparse sampling and iterative reconstruction enabling acceleration factors up to 10.

Now, patients suffering from arrhythmia or those unable to hold their breath will no longer have to be excluded from cardiac MRI, the gold standard of cardiac functional characterization.

Now, in free-breathing, we can acquire high resolution images of dynamic contrast enhancement in the abdomen, the gold standard in liver imaging.

Cardiac imaging

Compressed Sensing

Compressed Sensing Cardiac Cine is the first Compressed Sensing application available. Rather than taking nearly six minutes with multiple breath-holds, a Cardiac Cine scan can now be done within 25 seconds2 – in free-breathing.

Your benefits:

  • Acquire free-breathing, high-resolution Cardiac Cine images
  • Capture the whole cardiac cycle for precise quantification
  • Expand patient population eligible for cardiac MRI

Compressed Sensing Cardiac Cine is the first step. Stay tuned, and join the Compressed Sensing revolution.

Body imaging

Compressed Sensing GRASP-VIBE

Compressed Sensing GRASP-VIBE1 is our second Compressed Sensing application available. Rather than a complex abdominal exam with multiple breath-holds, critical timing of contrast application, and multiple patient commands, Compressed Sensing GRASP-VIBE acquires everything in one continuous run – under free-breathing, without complex timing.

Your benefits:

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