MAGNETOM Flash - November 2010

Cardiology Edition - November 2010*

Siemens Healthcare |  2010-11-01

Even before the introduction of MR imaging, the visualization of vessels was an integral part of the daily routine of a radiology department. Since MRI, however, we can now acquire detailed information about the vessels without the need to expose the patient to radiation. And by dispensing with previously undertaken interventions we can thereby avoid their associated risks.
One important focus of this issue of MAGNETOM Flash is the practical implementation of cardiac MRI. Back in 2007 we reported about the current clinical status of cardiac MRI and distributed the recommended protocols of the Society of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance for your MR scanner. This latest issue contains an update of these protocols for the syngo MR B17 and also a selection of new clinical information which will surely influence our daily routine in cardiac imaging.


Enjoy reading this latest issue of MAGNETOM Flash!
