Initial Clinical Experience with an Iterative Denoising Algorithm Applied to Reduced-data 2D Turbo Spin Echo Acquisitions

Image quality in standard 2D MRI sequences, accelerated in simulation beyond the threshold of standard acceptable noise levels, can be substantially improved by applying an iterative denoising algorithm using supplementary information about the image noise level. [...]

Introducing 3T MR Imaging with the new MAGNETOM Lumina

The MAGNETOM Lumina is a new 3T Open Bore system, incorporating artificial intelligence, matrix coils that automatically adjust to patient biovariability and parallel imaging/simultaneous multi-slice/compressed sensing technologies. [...]

Pelvic schwannoma

  Clinical History: 49-year old woman with an asymptomatic pelvic mass for 10 years (an incidental finding on routine physical examination)   Diagnosis: Pelvic schwannoma   MR Technique: Pelvic MR imaging was performed on a 3T system (Skyra, Siemens). (A) Coronal T2-weighted TIRM (TR/TE 4000/78ms), (B) sagittal T2-weighted TIRM (TR/TE 4000/70), (C) axial T1-weighted TSE […] [...]

Contrast Enhanced MRA of a Pelvic Arteriovenous Malformation

This 43-year-old woman presented to the angiography department three years ago with pain in the lower abdomen. She underwent resection of an intrauterine fibroma in 1997 and a C-section in 2002. In September 2005, the question was raised regarding a possible malformation of iliac vessels on the left side. [...]

Cervical Carcinoma

This 48-year-old woman presented with new-onset vaginal bleeding between menses for more than two months duration. Following ultrasound and the MRI herein illustrated, the patient underwent surgical treatment of her condition. [...]
