Figure 1.
(A) Typical scanning reconstruction requires significant oversampling (NPW) to prevent out of-FOV artifacts. This causes the user to scan more than is needed, which has a direct impact on scan time. (B) If we reduce the over oversampling factor (NPW), we’re able to lower the scan time but introduce out-of-FOV artifacts (arrows). (C) With AIR™ Recon, we can achieve shorter scan times and remove the out-of-FOV artifacts and improve the quality.

AIR™ workflow and image quality
Intelligent workflow applications powered by AIR™ automate the scan process to drive consistency. When paired with advanced imaging applications, AIR x™, AIR Touch™ and AIR™ Recon deliver simply better versatility and productivity gains along with industry-leading image quality.
AIR x™, a revolutionary workflow tool for brain exams, automatically prescribes slices to help eliminate error-prone, manual slice placements. Studies have shown 5x faster set-up time and 4x fewer clicks with AIR x™. So no matter who is scanning you get consistent and precise prescription set up for patients regardless of their age, pathology or position in the magnet. AIR Touch™ accelerates the scanning process through automated coil selection and landmarking. Just use IntelliTouch™, GE’s 1-touch landmarking tool, to activate an optimized set of coils that is selected based on the patient’s anatomy. With the anatomical based protocol optimization, AIR Touch™ optimizes the protocol parameters with a single touch, delivering a 59%** productivity gain from plan to scan. Realize further scan savings with Flexible No Phase Wrap (NPW) to scan only what you need so you can focus on the patient not the scanner.
AIR™ Recon, GE’s new reconstruction algorithm available on several key applications like PROPELLER, Cube, FSE and Flex, helps reduce background noise and out-of-FOV artifacts while improving SNR. The result is cleaner, crisper images without having to overcompensate in your scanning protocol.
Existing app enhancements
MAVRIC SL, GE’s industry-leading application for imaging in the presence of MR-Conditional implants, now includes T2-weighting (in addition to T1, PD and STIR), NPW and an automated parameter setting for streamlined workflow. Want to get there faster? HyperMAVRIC SL a 3D isotropic acquisition that enables 40 percent shorter scan times by automatically tailoring the acquisition to the patient’s implant. There’s even more in the SIGNA™Works AIR™ Edition to make everyday scans exceptional. New standard and expanded advanced applications simply improve your MR imaging capabilities from scan setup to patient comfort to image reconstruction.
