coils

Hover over each coil's name to display a diagram indicating the corresponding application area:


Pelvis - Sagittal T2 FSE with RADAR technique enabling motion-free imaging without gating

Pelvis - Axial BASG image with RAPID technique (parallel imaging) shortening the acquisition time

Chest- FLUTE (Fluoro Triggered Angiography) after contrast injection visualizing pulmonary arteries

Abdomen - VASC-ASL technique showing kidneys arteries without contrast media use

Brain - BSI (Blood Sensitive Imaging) sequence showing vascular abnormalities not visible with other techniques

Wrist - Water Excitation technique enables sub-millimeter resolution and excellent contrast for visualization of cartilage and details of small anatomy
