Bright-blood and black-blood MRI examination was carried out by using 8-channel cervical surface phased-array coil
(Shanghai Chenguan Company, China), the scanning sequence was FSE dual inversion recovery T1W, proton density weighted (PDW), T2W and three-dimensional time-of-flight (3D-TOF) gradient recalled echo, and the parameters were listed in [Table 1].
The pelvic phased-array coil
was used for both excitation and signal reception.
The BS-MRV algorithm can be readily applied to 3D SPGR acquired with a phased-array coil
. The composite images were constructed by the squared sum of the 8 data sets acquired from each of the coil elements.
Detection of extracapsular extension of prostate carcinoma with endorectal and phased-array coil
MR imaging: multivariate feature analysis.
A pelvic and body phased-array coil
was used and yielded an in-plane resolution of 0.56 x 0.56 x 3.00 mm at 1.5 T and 0.50 x 0.50 x 2.50 mm at 3.0 T.
The prostate can be well visualized using an endorectal coil combined with a pelvic phased-array coil
When only one phased-array coil
is used for an examination that is to include the upper abdomen and pelvis, the most efficient way to perform the examination is to complete the upper abdomen study first and continue with the pelvis later.
The Access Breast Coil is a 7-channel phased-array coil
designed for both conventional imaging and interventional procedures (Figure 3).
(2) It is even better with the use of the pelvic phased-array coils
which can provide high resolution of the urethral diverticulum details.
If multiple phased-array coils
are used, parallel imaging (2), (3) can be applied to significantly reduce the scan time, with only a marginal trade-off in signal.
Eight-channel phased-array coils
are widely available for spine imaging.
The higher SNR afforded by 3T augmented by the power of the latest generation phased-array coils
allows a variety of techniques to compensate for T2 * effects, including the use of parallel imaging and higher bandwidth with longer ET-FSE acquisitions.
