December 12, 2013 — Siemens debuted technologies designed to enable fast body magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for all patients at the Radiological Society of North America Annual Meeting (RSNA 2013). The technologies will be available on the Magnetom Skyra 3T and Magnetom Area 1.5T MRI systems. The new StarVibe MR pulse sequence is designed to enable free-breathing, contrast-enhanced liver imaging for patients (including patients who are old, very ill or young) who are unable to easily manage breath-holding. Siemens’ new Twist-Vibe MR sequence is designed to enable correct contrast imaging in dynamic liver MRI for all patients and lesions, allowing fast, robust liver imaging with full 4-D coverage. The sequences StarVibe and Twist-Vibe will be available as the Freezeit package.
 
Siemens also introduced its Quiet Suite of applications, which covers complete, quiet neuro and musculoskeletal MR examinations with a minimum 70 percent reduction in sound pressure and no compromise in image quality. Optimized to make MRI more comfortable for patients and to improve the comfort of sensitive patients such as children and the elderly, Quiet Suite will be available with the Magnetom Skyra 3T and Magnetom Area 1.5T MRI systems.

Example images for a control participant , a deletion carrier, and a duplication carrier. In the sagittal image of the deletion carrier, the thick corpus callosum, dens and craniocervical abnormality, and cerebellar ectopia are shown. For the duplication carrier, the sagittal image shows the thin corpus callosum and the axial image shows the increased ventricle size and decreased white matter volume.
