MAGNETOM Aera – Combining Throughput and Highest Quality MRI in an Optimized Clinical Workflow

This paper shows how the simultaneous use of multipurpose loop coils in MRI allows high-resolution musculoskeletal studies with increased contrast and specificity for assessing muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, and cartilage. Dr. Ferrer presents a number of different daily patient routine examinations, including specifically evaluation of the carpal bones, the thumb metacarpals, the metacarpals, the distal inter-phalangeal joints, the elbow and ankle.
