BeamSAT TOF:
assessing brain hemodynamics better

A unique technology for non-contrast, non-invasive, and radiation-free MRA

Common contrast MRA sequences can struggle with brain vascularization due to the spatial resolution limitations typical of time-resolved CE-Angiography. Which is why we equipped our BeamSAT TOF with a pencil-shaped beam type presaturation, mimicking blood flow suppression. By using this 3D TOF, you can virtually observe brain hemodynamics and its contribution of each single vessel.

So if you want to give your patients the best possible treatment based on the best information possible…this technology is for you. 

BeamtSAT TOF has proved to be especially beneficial when dealing with:

  • Pre-surgical blood circulation assessment.
  • Tumour angiogenesis.
  • Carotid and intracranial artery stenosis.
  • Brain revascularization after surgery.
  • Moya Moya disease.

It’s faster compared to the PC (Phase Contrast) method. Plus, it’s non-invasive and radiation-free compared to DSA (Digital Subtraction Angiography). So you get detailed information for a confident diagnosis; and your patients are examined in a safer environment. A real win-win.
