Deep Resolve Swift Brain is an ultra-fast brain protocol leveraging the fastest available imaging sequence, EPI, together with a deep learning reconstruction to push acceleration to the edge. The protocol consists of five contrasts: T1, T2, T2*, T2 dark-fluid, and diffusion.
While T1 is based on a fast GRE imaging sequence, the remaining contrasts are multi-shot EPI-based. Multi-shot EPI together with a new static field correction minimizes geometric distortions that are intrinsic to EPI imaging. Within this multi-shot EPI approach, T2 and T2* are acquired simultaneously by a Siemens Healthineers exclusive EPI-implementation, further accelerating this protocol.
