Magnetic Resonance in Cardiology
With Cardiac MR becoming increasingly important, our systems are unique in the industry in considering all aspects of patient care. Our applications allow a wide range of new imaging capabilities providing comprehensive diagnostic imaging with high spatial and temporal resolution. The systems’ open bore and the quiet examination thanks to our proprietary “Pianissimo” acoustic noise-reduction technology provide an improved patient experience.
We offer a wide variety of applications, such as cardiac cine, MR perfusion, and delayed enhancement sequences as well as contrast-free, free-breathing MR coronary angiography, free-breathing cine. A full diagnostic workup is offered, allowing comprehensive evaluation of cardiac anatomy and function. Detailed myocardial tissue characterization using T1 and T2* mapping completes the quantitative approach.
Comprehensive assessment of myocardial ischemia, including quantification of myocardial strain and wall motion parameters.
Faster workflow, simplified acquisition and quantitative analysis
Using SUREVOI+ and CardioLine+, automatic detection of heart allows for complete workflow automation from table positioning to fully automated cardiac planning using standardized views. Comprehensive quantitative analysis and reporting is offered through the Medis Post-Processing solutions MR QMass® and QFlow®.
Deeper myocardial tissue characterization from Late Gadolinium Enhancement (LGE) to T1 mapping.
PSIR (Phase Sensitive Inversion Recovery) provides contrast in late-enhanced imaging by using a more robust nulling of healthy myocardial signal without an inversion time (TI) calibration scan. Accordingly, cardiac examinations can be completed with fewer breath holds and greater patient comfort. Our MOLLI (MOdified Look-Locker Inversion recovery) sequence enables the acquisition of a full T1 map within a single breath hold, providing quantitative assessment.
“ Artificial Intelligence is a bright future for 3T cardiovascular MRI, and the Vantage Galan is at the edge to that development.”
