Vascular

Contrast enhanced angiography techniques complemented by non-contrast angiography provide the tools for Head-to-Toe vascular imaging. Advanced MRI imaging techniques come together to enable analysis of artery stenosis and qualitative assessment of plaque, allowing full diagnosis in vascular imaging.

Contrast-enhanced Angiography



Fluoro Triggered MRA (FLUTE)

Evaluate image at the best timing.

FLUTE eliminates the need for a timing injection. Users monitor the artery of interest for bolus arrival using real-time fluoro scanning mode, switching instantly to the 3D diagnostic scan upon arrival.

Time Resolved MRA (TRAQ)

TRAQ depicts blood flow dynamics for simplified bolus MRA acquisition. Multiple 3D acquisitions are collected to visualize the entire blood flow cycle, thereby alleviating the need for precise timing of the contrast bolus.

Non-contrast Angiography



VASC-ASL

(Veins and Arteries Scans Contrast – Arterial Spine Labelling)

Visualization of fast speed blood flow in renal arteries and portal veins.

VASC-ASL is a non-contrast MRA imaging function that visualizes fast blood flow labelled with IR pulses using the 3D BASG sequence.

VASC-FSE

(Veins and Arteries Scans Contrast – Fast Spine Echo)

A non-contrast alternative technique for peripheral vessel depiction.

BeamSat TOF
Offers greater visibility of hemodynamic changes.

Allows users to selectively isolate flow signal with a cylindrical beam saturation pulse, which can localize sources of blood flow when depicting vascular anormalies.

Signal Intensity Ratio Map

SIR Map used with RADAR T1WI SE sequence evaluates the components of arterial plaque, thus influencing diagnosis and treatment monitoring of stenosis. The result is displayed as a colour overlay on the anatomic image.

Volume Rendering TOF

Supports diagnosis of complex vascular structures.

VR is a reconstruction method that can be created on the console. It can determine blood flow movement stereoscopically to support diagnosis of regions with complex vascular structures such as the head.
