High-performance gradients When test driving a car, do you measure the performance of the ngine simply based on horsepower? Of course not. You assess it by how fast you can get from the dealership to the highway—and how well it handles along the way. So why not apply that same logic to MR?
In fact, that’s how technologists do it
today. When setting up a scan, they
don’t select the gradient amplitude and
slew rate. They select scan parameters,
such as the sequence TR and TE,
to generate the required clinical
While the Discovery MR750w
gradient system achieves high temporal
resolution and helps you drive the high
patient throughput you desire, it’s about
more than just speed. The accuracy
and linearity of the gradients are
required to support a true, uncompromised
50x50x50 cm FOV and high resolution
off of isocenter (see Figure 1).
