MR Protocols

MR Protocols

The goals of this series of MR imaging protocols are to:

  • Offer protocols that are state of the art for newer equipment and contrast agents to enable clinicians to use MR imaging technologies to their fullest capabilities
  • Provide an important educational service to radiologists and radiology technologists by presenting optimized approaches for the acquisition of highly diagnostic images of the central nervous system (CNS), body, and vasculature using newer-generation MR scanners, sequences, and acquisition parameters
  • Demonstrate how protocols should be modified to take into account the different physicochemical properties of the currently available MR contrast agents Suggested protocols specific to General Electric (GE), Siemens, and Philips MR systems are included, with these protocols developed based on the consensus of 3 panels of experts with experience on each platform.
