syngo Native – Non Contrast MR Angiography Techniques

With the need to carefully consider the risk versus benefit of contrast agent administration, following the advent of Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF), as well as the need to perform cost effective MR studies, there is a demand for improved methods for performing MR angiography using intrinsic rather than extrinsic contrast mechanisms.

syngo NATIVE TrueFISP in the Assessment of the Transplanted Kidney

When imaging patients with impaired renal function that have recently undergone transplant surgery, one approach is to use a completely non- invasive method, without the use of a gadolinium chelate, and thus without the potential risk of NSF. In this article the effectiveness of TrueFISP with selective inversion recovery preparation, now known as syngo NATIVE TrueFISP, is shown. This technique from a diagnostic point of view appears equivalent to low dose contrast-enhanced angiography, providing a low-risk method for the initial evaluation of the transplanted kidney. [...]
