Revised - 1/31/2019
Charge as Brain WO
  • MR 4 ONLY
  • Send all images and data to PACS
  • Tech to complete the MRI Scan Information Worksheet at the time of scan.
  • Please be sure to indicate if each sequence has been completed and note any problems or modifications to the protocol in the appropriate comment section. Also note if data transfer and archive have been completed.
RM 4 Only- Head Coil
Sequence   Change Parameters? Change slices? Coverage/ Angulation Notes
3 plane localizer -
NO NO No Angle Try to position the patient as straight as possible in the scanner to give a midline slice.

SAG 3D MPRAGE / IRSPGR NO 170 slices. Do not change slices. No Angle
Straight sagittal. Full head coverage. Cover entire head, cerebellum. Include the entire nose.
AX
T2 FLAIR NO Ok to add slices Ok to angle
Full brain coverage. Acquisition stack should be placed just above the most superior point in the brain and should fully cover the cerebellum as well as all brain in the lateral and the anterior to posterior planes. If extra transverse slices are required to achieve this coverage, please acquire those slices.
AX DWI NO Ok to add slices Ok to angle
Full brain coverage. The acquisition stack should be placed just above the most superior point in the brain and should fully cover the cerebellum a well as all brain in the lateral and the anterior to posterior planes. If extra transverse slices are required to achieve this coverage, please acquire those slices.
AX GRE
NO Ok to add slices Ok to angle
Full brain coverage. The acquisition stack should be placed just above the most superior point in the brain and should fully cover the cerebellum a well as all brain in the lateral and the anterior to posterior planes.
