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.
The prostate can be well visualized using an endorectal coil combined with a pelvic phased-array coil at 1.
Prostate cancer: Comparison of local staging accuracy of pelvic phased-array coil alone versus integrated endorectal-pelvic phased-array coils.
The Access Breast Coil's 4-channel, phased-array coil
architecture provides high-quality parallel imaging of the breast, chest wall and axillary tissue.
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).
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.
