MAGNETOM Flash1 – Pediatric SPR Edition – Issue 57


MRI has undergone a major revolution over recent years with higher field strength, sequences that overcome SAR issues and suppress motion artifacts, parallel imaging, 3D imaging and improved coil technology. The combination of these techniques and a better appreciation of the needs of children and how to improve their capacity to cooperate has expanded the role of MRI in pediatrics. This issue of MAGNETOM Flash showcases many of these exciting new techniques from renowned experts and demonstrates how they have been applied both to clinical pediatric imaging and in research.
