ParaVision 360

Consistent Quantification

Consistent Results

ParaVision users rely on the push-button pre-optimized protocols and scan programs that come with the instrument. With CASL, Bruker debuts its first workflow package containing a complete pre-prepared scan program, an examination guide, and an integrated reconstruction with automatic measurement of inversion efficiency and output of quantitative CBF maps. This full package makes the data operator independent and therefore increases the quality and reproducibility of longitudinal studies.

Quantifiable Data

Cardiac image quality is also better than ever before. Wireless IntraGate imaging is now coupled with radial UTE to to allow 8-fold accelerated full heart cine coverage in IntraGateUTE. The minimized flow artifacts allow streamlined evaluation with automatic cardiac analysis software, and the image analysis tool allows to interactively map tissue properties.

Reproducible Results

Stability and reproducibility is a must for highly meticulous laboratories such as those of pharmaceutical companies. Scan to scan importation of parameters guarantees conformity throughout studies and subjects, and study reports ensure that all scan parameters are documented for future reference.

Efficient Animal Imaging

Animals are quickly positioned within the MRI and PET using the touchscreen of the Animal Transport System (ATS). Its accuracy guaranteers positioning correspondence between the two modalities and enables multistation acquisition for largest Field of Views.

Consistent Workflow for PET and MRI

ParaVision 360 enables full integration of PET and MRI instruments. PET/MR users profit from a commonality between workflows, image processing and analysis, and data structure and management, all of which make operation of the modalities faster and easier. Common terminology between the modalities and integrated workflows provide optimal clarity during scanning.

At The Forefront of MRI

Accurate Imaging

The introduction of AVANCE NEO electronics makes dynamic simming possible, leading to even greater fiedlity in fast EPI imaging and improving metabolite quantification in multi-slice CSI.

Largest Method Portfolio

The already large MRI sequence portfolio, which is exclusive to Bruker, has been expanded even further. B1 can be mapped and shimmed based on the DREAM method and CBF can be quantitatively calculated from CASL based on EPI. The range and quality of tissue imaging is extended with the methods Double Echo Steady State (DESS), ideal for cartilage imaging and IntraGateUTE providing virtually flow artifact-free full heart cine coverage. A dual echo-time option has been added to UTE3D, and a Saturation Transfer module including CEST and MTC options is available. A fat-water separation option is provided in RARE, enabling fat chemical shift corrected images.

Powerful Data Analysis

ParaVision 360 provides extensive reconstruction, viewing and analysis functions, ranging from angles and annotation to surface rendering to underlay/overlay, to zooming/panning.

Full Flexibility

An open method developing framework with open method sources codes enables programming of novel methods and reconstruction options.
