Cube replaces several 2D slice acquisitions with one single 3D volume scan. Sub-millimeter isotropic Cube volume data can be easily reformatted into any plane—without gaps, and with the same resolution as the native plane. The new self-calibrating, parallel-imaging engine ARC helps to speed up the sequence while minimizing artifacts. And you'll appreciate the high tissue contrast.
- Neuro MRI. Cube acquires contiguous, sub-millimeter isotropic 3D data that can be easily reformatted into any plane, thus replacing multiple 2D scans. SNR-rich ultra-thin slices help you visualize even small and subtle lesions without partial-volume averaging effect. Cube is enabled for T1, T2, T2 FLAIR, and PD contrasts.
- MSK MRI. Cube generates contiguous, sub-millimeter isotropic 3D data that can be later easily reformatted into any plane. You can now easily examine some tissue structures that are best seen in oblique views. SNR-rich, ultra-thin slices help eliminate partial-volume averaging effect, and visualize even small and subtle lesions.
- Body MRI. Cube acquires contiguous, sub-millimeter isotropic 3D data that can be easily reformatted into any plane, thus replacing multiple 2D scans. SNR-rich, ultra-thin slices help you visualize even small and subtle lesions without partial-volume averaging effect.
"You can't argue against 3D thin-slice, gap-free studies. This will change the way we scan. "
