This series of images taken with TwistVibe show how the new technology enables radiologists to catch the correct time point of lesion enhancement within the arterial phase. With TWIST-VIBE, it is now possible to generate multiple stacks of images from the arterial phase to follow the lesion enhancement over time. With that, other so-far-unseen lesions may become visible. Images courtesy of University Hospital IKRN, Mannheim, Germany.
