Two-point mDixon TSE for Water and Fat Separated MR Imaging in Pediatrics

Imaging Technology News Webinar Series -- Supported by an educational grant from Philips Healthcare

 

September 4, 2013
mDixon, MRI
Jeffrey Miller, M.D.

This webinar defines and demonstrates the two-point mDixon TSE imaging technique to more robustly separate water and fat signals in pediatric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Its application allows faster time-efficient scanning, large field-of-view (FOV), allows fat-free imaging in challenging areas such as head, neck or spine, and provides four contrasts in one scan.

This webinar took place in the fall of 2013. CME is not available for On Demand session, to view On Demand click Here

 

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the basic principles of mDixon techniques
  • Identify the differences between mDixon and other traditional methods of fat suppression
  • Demonstrate clinical examples of improved image quality and diagnostic added value of mDixon images compared to standard fat suppression images
