Breast MRI on 1.5T MAGNETOM Sola
Sindre Øverstad (Department of Radiology, Radiumhospitalet, Oslo University Hospital, Oslo, Norway)
Creating an MRI-protocol always involves a compromise between image resolution, image contrast, SNR, and scan time. MAGNETOM Sola unlashes advanced acceleration- and imaging techniques at 1.5T that can be combined to shorten scan time and improve the image quality. Using the combination of the 18-channel Breast coil and the 18-channel Body coil, we have developed a multiparametric breast MRI protocol requiring approximately 15 minutes scan time.
