SIGNA Pulse of MR
The new Spring 2015 ISMRM issue of SIGNA Pulse of MR is here, and we continue to celebrate the Return of SIGNA. As you know, back in 1983, we introduced the SIGNA™ brand and the world’s first high-field 1.5T MR system. SIGNA became synonymous with innovation, proven quality, and trust. Just as we revolutionized MR back then, we are changing the course of MR right now with creative, newly designed advancements in technology.
In this issue we focus on initial experiences with two new advancements that were launched at RSNA last fall, the SIGNA™ PET/MR and the SIGNA™ Explorer. We also look at other advancements such as MAVRIC SL, DISCO in prostate and breast imaging, FOCUS DWI at 3.0T, and the Orchestra Software Development Kit.
Along with the main publication, we are once again publishing an Academic Supplement. The focus of this, our third supplement, is on truly transformative subjects including: TOF PET/MR imaging for attenuation correction and metal artifact reduction; new synthetic MR technology allowing multiple image contrasts in a single scan; and an approach to generating coils in excess of 64 channels using MEMS technology.
We encourage you to check out both issues and hope you find ways to incorporate our solutions into your everyday practice.
