MR Pediatric Total Spine WITH only - Double jump

One jump or two jumps?

Sagittal coverage should extend from mid-clivus to the S4-S5 "disc" level.  If this distance < 450 mm, then use a single jump for the whole spine. If > 450 mm, then use two jumps, dividing into equal lengths. 


Surveillance of contrast-enhancing tumors in the spinal canal. Drop-metastases.  

Other notes:

Zero gap for all sequences. Do not change parameters including sense factors to reduce scan time. FOV should not exceed 450mm for any stations on any exam. OK to decrease FOV. Do not use ScanAlign/MobiView.
