Toshiba Highlights Advanced Non-Contrast MRA Techniques

Toshiba will showcase its proprietary non-contrast magnetic resonance (MR) angiography imaging techniques and a new application of Time-Spatial Labeling Inversion Pulse (Time-SLIP) at the 2011 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) trade show. To evaluate cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow disorders in children and adults, Time-SLIP can visualize CSF flow without the administration of contrast media, making imaging safer for patients.

In addition to Time-SLIP, Toshiba will show its full suite of advanced contrast-free MRA techniques, including Fresh Blood Imaging (FBI), Contrast-free Improved Angiography (CIA) and Time Space Angiography (TSA).

Machine Learning IDs Markers to Help Predict Alzheimer's

Neurologists use structural and diffusion magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to identify changes in brain tissue (both gray and white matter) that are characteristic of Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. The MRI images are analyzed using morphometry and tractography techniques, which detect changes in the shape and dimensions of the brain and in the tissue microstructure, respectively. In this example, the images show the normal brain of an elderly patient. Image courtesy of Jiook Cha.
