Advanced WARP

Functionality

Advanced WARP1,2 includes the following artifact reduction techniques:

  • Slice Encoding for Metal Artifact Correction (SEMAC) technique for full distortion correction, in- and through-plane
  • High-bandwidth RF pulses
  • High readout gradient amplitude
  • High-bandwidth IR-preparation for robust fat suppression (high-bandwidth STIR)
  • View Angle Tilting (VAT) technique for in-plane distortion correction

 

Benefits
 

  • Efficient correction of bulk metal artifacts3
  • Efficient workflow: Ready-to-use optimized protocols. Integrated Dot workflow with single-click changes to a scan strategy optimized for implant patients
  • Robust image quality and fewer repeated scans, ensuring high patient throughput
  • Potential to diagnose clinical conditions such as prosthesis loosening, infections, inflammations, and implant failure
