Interpreting CT and MR angiographies with IMPAXX

Impaxx is our image-viewing system and, despite the fact that it is Java-based, it is pretty good (even if we are not allowed to use some of the more advanced features).

We run through the basics of interpreting a stroke MRI

  • DWI – is there a stroke?
  • ADC – what stage is it in?
  • FLAIR – what other strokes are there (and what non-stroke lesions?)?
  • HEME (T2*, SWI, or – if nothing better is available – the b0 pictures of the DWI sequence, which is pretty susceptible to heme artifacts as well)
  • MRA

Next, we concentrate on how to reconstruct angiographies using the 3d-modelling tool, how to do a curved MPR and what is the difference between average and MIP reconstructions.
