The 26th Annual Meeting of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM 2018) was recently held in Paris, France. Shanghai United Imaging Healthcare Co., Ltd. (United Imaging), as the only Chinese corporate member of ISMRM, attended this event for the 7th consecutive year and unveiled a suite of new technologies.
Faster: Single-scan multi-contrast technology allowing accurate examination of multiple sclerosis and other brain diseases.
Dr. Qiang “Al” Zhang, Co-President of United Imaging, offered his insight into the future MR: “We believe that the future MR will be faster, easier to use, and provide richer clinical and scientific information. Therefore, United Imaging has been focusing on developing new technologies on fast MR imaging. We are also complementing MR with healthcare IT and medical artificial intelligence to provide more valuable solutions to clinical diagnosis.”
During the conference, a member from the Professor Jaeseok Park team of SKKU gave a presentation on multi-contrast MRI single-scan technology. Thanks to the close collaborations among United Imaging, SKKU, and the PGH, this fast MR scan technology combines constellation shuttling (CS) with multi-contrast single-scan and data sharing technologies for the first time. This technology can achieve an acceleration factor of up to 10, enabling high-resolution and …
