Integrated multivoxel spectroscopy software package with sequences and protocols for 3D Chemical Shift Imaging (CSI)


Clinical Applications

  • Prostate Spectroscopy for diagnosis, localization of prostate cancer
  • Improved spatial localization of metabolic changes in biopsy or radiotherapy planning

Fonctionnalités et avantages


  • Matrix Spectroscopy – phase-coherent signal combination from several coil elements for maximum SNR with configurable prescan-based normalization for optimal homogeneity
  • 3D Chemical Shift Imaging
  • Hybrid CSI with combined VoIume selection and Field of View (FoV) encoding
  • Short TEs available (30 ms for SE, 20 ms for STEAM)
  • Automized shimming of the higher order shimming channels for optimal homogeneity of the larger CSI volumes
  • Weighted acquisition, leading to a reduced examination time compared to full k-space coverage while keeping SNR and spatial resolution
  • Outer Volume Suppression
  • Spectral Suppression
  • Protocols for prostate spectroscopy
