Whole-Body Oncologic Imaging with syngo TimCT

The article shows that the addition of syngo TimCT functionality makes whole-body MR oncologic evaluation a viable reality. Extended, whole-body anatomic coverage is now possible without off-isocenter artifacts or signal loss. In-plane image quality with the TimCT application is maintained in comparison to conventional MR. Non-breathhold technique did not limit diagnostic quality in the presented patients. Skull-base to upper thigh coverage was achieved in standard imaging times of 30–40 minutes. With the addition of DWI to conventional sequences, functional-anatomic information correlation is possible through the whole-body field of view. TimCT has removed the barriers to whole-body MR evaluation.
