Blood Sensitive Imaging (BSI)

Susceptibility Imaging

T2* weighted sequence provides non-contrast imaging solution using deoxygenated blood as a natural contrast agent. T2* imaging is sensitive to differences in magnetic susceptibility of adjacent tissues allowing for high resolution venographic images. BSI employs an optimized bandwidth with multiple TE contributions reducing chemical shift and blurring. Susceptibility imaging is used to aid in diagnosis of brain hemorrhage and stroke and more recently Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Multiple Sclerosis, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
