3D PACE3D PACE (Prospective Acquisition CorrEction)

3D PACE enhances inline BOLD imaging with motion correction during the acquisition of a BOLD exam. In contrast to a retrospective motion correction that corrects previously acquired data, the unique 3D PACE tracks the head of the patient, correcting for motion in real time during the acquisition. This increases the data quality beyond what can be achieved with a retrospective motion correction. As a result the sensitivity and specificity of BOLD experiments are increased.

Características y Beneficios


  • Fully automatic 3D prospective motion correction during data acquisition, for 6 degrees of freedom (3 translations and 3 rotations)
  • Provides high accuracy
  • Substantially reduced motion-related artifacts in t-test calculations
  • Significantly increased signal changes in the activated neuronal volume
  • Increased functional MRI (fMRI) sensitivity and specificity
