Scan once, then reformat to any plane with high sub-millimeter resolution.

Cube

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. "

Literature

MR scanning has not been established as safe for imaging fetuses or infants. Carefully compare the benefits of MR versus alternative procedures before scanning to control risk to the patient. A physician needs to decide to scan pregnant or infant patients.
