MR Brain fMRI Neuro Protocol

Scan Notes: 
A 3D T1 Axial acquisition must always be performed in conjunction with the DTI
SENDING IMAGES TO DYNASUITE:
Send the 3D sequence was used as an overlay to dynasuite. If nothing was used as the overlay, send the 3D T1
Send DTI
Send fMRI sequences (raw data)
Don't send any other anatomical images to Dynamite
fMRI Tasks: to be determined by Radiologist before the exam begins. Page the Rad before the starting the tasks. Do not angle or add slices to task sequences. Rad will draw ROIs. Save screenshots of the post processed graph, and send screen capture to Pacs. Send raw data to Dynasuite.

Charge as:
If we acquire only the fMRI scans and the frameless scans, charge for a 3D Recon and fMRI. 
If we acquire a FULL diagnostic brain in addition to fMRI, then you must charge for 3D Recon, fMRI and Brain WWO.
Scanner preference: MRI4 only
Coil: Head

Plane Weighting Mode Slice Gap FAT SAT FOV Notes
AXIAL 3D T1 - None 26cm Run pre or PostDO NOT ANGLE.Send to DynasuiteIf 3D T1 is a stereotactic, and omit padding per usual.
AXIAL DTI - None 26cm Run in conjunction with 3D T1.OK to run post gad.DO NOT ANGLE.No need for additional coverage.
AXIAL fMRIlanguage: Word Generation - None 26cm DO NOT ANGLE OR ADD SLICES
AXIAL fMRILanguage: Verb Generation - None 26cm DO NOT ANGLE OR ADD SLICES
AXIAL fMRILanguage: Sentence Completion - None 26cm DO NOT ANGLE OR ADD SLICES
AXIAL fMRIMotor: Right Finger Tap - None 26cm DO NOT ANGLE OR ADD SLICES
AXIAL fMRIMotor: Left Finger Tap - None 26cm DO NOT ANGLE OR ADD SLICES
AXIAL fMRIMotor: Breath Hold - None 26cm DO NOT ANGLE OR ADD SLICESThis sequence doesn't have a pre-built task. You must give the patient breathing instructions as the scan is run.
AXIAL fMRIMotor: Lip Movement - None 26cm DO NOT ANGLE OR ADD SLICES
AXIAL fMRIMotor: Foot Movement - None 26cm DO NOT ANGLE OR ADD SLICES
