Overcoming motion challenges in MR imaging

Bowel or respiratory motion can lead to difficulties in making image-based diagnoses, a need for rescanning or a loss of diagnostic confidence. The Philips MultiVane XD method uses an extended reconstruction algorithm to provide imaging that is virtually motion free. In this article, Dr P. Baumann describes how the Multivane XD algorithm is being used for many applications in the radiology institute attached to the St. Joseph Stift hospital in Bremen, Germany. The use of the MultiVane XD function includes fast liver exams that are routinely carried out in the institute.
