How to Shorten Scan Times

Northwestern Medicine Northwestern Medicine

Pediatric patients may soon be getting quicker scans, according to a new study at Stanford University. 

The research team looked specifically to PET/MRI scans, which combine attributes to both modalities. For most scans, regardless of modality, one needs to remain still for an extended period of time, often upwards of an hour. For pediatric patients, this is next to impossible, and often requires the use of anesthesia; this also leads to higher costs. 

In this study, pediatric cancer survivors underwent this PET/MRI scan that looks at brain, heart, and bone images all in one ninety minute session. The results proved to be fairly accurate when looking at this first test group. This technique could be especially helpful to cancer patients to see if cancer has spread to other regions. The team looks to expand their studies and show the feasibility of this technique. 

At Accessories for MRI, we are happy to see the methods in which imaging improves upon itself. We aim to improve upon ourselves as well with our ever expanding range of MRI conditional equipment.
