image acquisition time

image acquisition time

An MRI term for the time required to gather a complete set of image data. The total scan time for performing a scan must take into consideration the additional image reconstruction time when determining how quickly the image(s) may be viewed.

Lights built using NanoDrive technology are able to reach full intensity in nanoseconds when strobing, allowing for a very short image acquisition time and helping to minimise or remove ambient lighting.
Mean image acquisition time (time required to generate the electronic data set, not to include image reconstruction and analysis) was 13 [+ or -] 6 minutes.
Additional CMR features such as endocardial T2 signaling, early and delayed enhancement imaging of the subendocardial layer provide information regarding function and fibrosis of the affected segments and can, thus, help in identifying areas of arrythmogenic activity or presence of apical LV clots.9While the CMR provides a crisp image quality with high spatial resolution, its use is limited because of its limited availability and prolonged image acquisition time.
One clinically relevant approach is to invest the gains of dPET detector sensitivity and precision into reducing the image acquisition time for static, whole-body, and dynamic dPET imaging.
The system provides distortion-free imaging by combining proprietary methods, such as dynamic auto focus and drift correction, which reduces image acquisition time compared to conventional microCT.
For instance, one such PPI technique known as sensitivity encoding (SENSE) utilizes complex RF coil sensitivity profiles to improve the image quality or accelerate the image acquisition time by substituting gradient encoding [12, 13].
(22) The Statscan trauma protocol reduces image acquisition time in the emergency unit, especially when multiple patients present simultaneously, and has the potential to improve emergency department efficiency in dealing with multiple casualty incidents.
At very high throughput rates (>1800 ppm), image acquisition time might also need to be taken into consideration.
The MRI stroke protocol generally took 10-15 minutes--timing that should allay concerns about the length of MRI's image acquisition time, they reported.
With this approach, the image acquisition time is much faster than when using a desktop microscope.
