High-resolution DWI with syngo RESOLVE
syngo RESOLVE uses the same diffusion preparation as single-shot EPI, however, the k-space trajectory is divided into multiple segments in the readout direction, which allows for a TE and and an encoding-time reduction increasing image quality.
- High-resolution DWI and DTI
- Reduced susceptibility and blurring artifacts, insensitive to motion-induced phase errors
- Reduced SAR, when compared to alternative TSE-based methods
- Increase in clinical relevance and diagnostics confidence
- Relevant for a variety of clinical and neuroscience studies
The rate of water diffusion in different tissue types correlates strongly with their physiological state, and might be altered as a result of disease. Diffusion Weighted Imaging (DWI) provides a way to measure and visualize abnormal diffusivity, revealing lesions which would often go unnoticed with conventional anatomical MR or CT imaging alone. Due to the large diagnostic value of this technique, and despite some challenges in certain body regions at higher field strengths, DWI is now broadly used in clinical routine.
