How Blended Learning Can Provide Answers for Training in the COVID-19 Pandemic: Experience from France

Mixing different training formats (blended learning) is a key feature of learning today, and it has become even more important since the COVID-19 pandemic began. [...]

Deep Resolve – Mobilizing the Power of Networks

Deep Resolve Gain and Deep Resolve Sharp introduce targeted, iterative denoising and deep learning reconstruction into clinical imaging. These technologies enable us to reduce acquisition times and improve image quality simultaneously. [...]

MAGNETOM Free.Max: Access to MRI – How to Make it Big Inside and Small Outside

This overview shows how a complete design overhaul of the magnet and gradient system together with the use of new imaging and reconstruction techniques results in an MRI system that achieves somewhat contradictory goals: A large 80 cm bore for the patient with a scanner that delivers diagnostic image quality AND easy installation with a small physical footprint and low connection power.

Right renal angiomyolipoma

Clinical History: 59-year old woman with right lower back pain for more than one year   Diagnosis: Right renal angiomyolipoma   MR Technique: Upper abdominal imaging was performed on a 3T MR system. (A, B) Axial T1-weighted VIBE in- and out-of-phase (TR/TE 3.88/1.27ms), and (C) axial FS T2-weighted TSE (TR/TE 5814/78ms, with respiratory triggering) scans […] [...]

MAGNETOM Aera – Combining Throughput and Highest Quality MRI in an Optimized Clinical Workflow

This paper shows how the simultaneous use of multipurpose loop coils in MRI allows high-resolution musculoskeletal studies with increased contrast and specificity for assessing muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, and cartilage. Dr. Ferrer presents a number of different daily patient routine examinations, including specifically evaluation of the carpal bones, the thumb metacarpals, the metacarpals, the distal inter-phalangeal joints, the elbow and ankle. [...]

MAGNETOM Skyra: The Mannheim Perspective

For over one year the 3T MAGNETOM Skyra has been used for scientific projects and clinical imaging at the University Medical Center (UMM) Mannheim. The UMM Mannheim was the first site in the world to install the Skyra. [...]

Investigative Radiology September 2021

Through-slice chemical shift artifacts in state-of-the-art turbo-spinecho (TSE) images can be significantly more severe at 7 T than at lower field strengths. In musculoskeletal applications, these artifacts appear similar to bone fractures or neoplastic bone marrow disease. The objective of this work was to explore and reduce through-slice chemical shift artifacts in 2-dimensional (2D) TSE imaging at 7 T. [...]

Investigative Radiology August 2021

The aim of this study was to investigate the impact of a deep learning based superresolution reconstruction technique for T1-weighted volume-interpolated breath-hold examination (VIBESR) on image quality in comparison with standard VIBE images (VIBESD). [...]

Investigative Radiology July 2021

The aim of this study was to investigate the impact of a novel edge enhancement and iterative denoising algorithm in 1.5-T T1-weighted dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) gradient echo (GRE) magnetic resonance imaging of the abdomen on image quality, noise levels, diagnostic confidence, and lesion detectability. [...]

Investigative Radiology May 2021

The aim of this study was to investigate the impact of a novel iterative denoising and image enhancement technique in T1-weighted precontrast and postcontrast volume-interpolated breath-hold examination (VIBE) of the abdomen on image quality, noise levels, and diagnostic confidence without change of acquisition parameters.
