IDEAL provides robust, homogenous fat/water separation – even in difficult-to-scan anatomies.

IDEAL

In MR imaging, magnetic susceptibility effect can obscure or mimic pathology – especially in challenging anatomies. IDEAL provides robust, homogenous fat/water separation even in difficult to scan anatomies. It generates four different contrasts – water-only, fat-only, in-phase, and out-of-phase – from one single acquisition. Robust, homogenous fat suppression and additional tissue insights aid in more-confident diagnoses and eliminate the need for a separate fat saturation scan.

"IDEAL fat-water separation really enables us to do things in musculoskeletal MRI that we couldn't do before (...) and has really revolutionized our imaging in the neck and cervical spine."
