Compressed SENSE technology leads to faster MRI scans throughout the whole body, research shows


The MRI team at Kantonsspital Winterthur in Switzerland has been using Phillips' Compressed SENSE technology to speed up scans of various body parts, according to Imaging Technology News.

Here are four things to know:

1. The MRI team has used Compressed SENSE for scans of the brain, spine, joints, pelvis and abdomen.

2. Kantonsspital Winterthur has been using Compressed SENSE since Sept. 2017, and it was one of the first 10 sites in the world to receive the technology on its Ingenia 1.5T and Achieva 3.0T MRI scanners.

3. Sabine Sartoretti, MD, head of neuroradiology at the site's Institute of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine, said the technology has helped to reduce patient scan times and has accelerated a routine brain scan by 22 percent.

4. Kantonsspital Winterthur is planning to adjust its ExamCards to shorten patient MRI timeslots and, in turn, increase its total of MRI patients per day.
