COR T2 SSTSE BH 5mm 1mm N top of kidneys to pelvis Scan sacrum to anterior abdominal wall. CONFIRM GOOD COIL PLACEMENT. Large FOV to include kidneys. Pelvic pathology is often related to renal pathology
AXIAL T1 TSE 5mm 1mm N 20-24mm, fit to patient Scan iliac crest to perineum. Freq A-P to avoid bowel motion ghosting into uterus and bladder. If there is a pelvic mass, please scan to include the whole mass.
AXIAL T2 TSE 5mm 1mm N 20-24mm, fit to patient Scan iliac crest to perineum. Same parameters as AX T1 TSE. Freq A-P to avoid bowel motion ghosting into uterus and bladder.
SAG T2 TSE 5mm 1mm N 24mm, fit to patient Scan mid-femoral head to mid-femoral head. Freq A-P. Consider using an anterior Sat band if lots of abdominal wall motion.
COR T2 TSE FS 5mm 1mm Y 20-24mm, fit to patient Scan sacrum to anterior abdominal wall. Freq A-P.
Optional AX Oblique T2 TSE 5mm 1mm N 20-24mm, fit to patient Optional Sequence for Uterine/Mullerian anomaly.Scan uterus to perineum. Slices should be along the length of the uterus.CALL Rad FOR PLANNING!
Optional COR Oblique T2 TSE 5mm 1mm N 20-24mm, fit to patient Optional Sequence for Uterine/Mullerian anomaly. Include Uterus, Cervix and vagina. Slices should be along the short axis of the uterus. CALL Rad FOR PLANNING!
