Session 3 / Talk 2
13:25 – 13:50
MRI USER GROUP
Predominantly fetal MRI is performed at 1.5T field strength. Traditionally this would have been due to that being the most common field strength used in imaging for around the past 10 years.
In our institution we have both 1.5T and 3T magnets available to use and with a change in services provided, we have had to look at the option of performing fetal MRI at 3T on our wide bore system
This talk will cover our first initial experiences with performing fetal MRI at 3T, adaption’s we have had to make in the protocol traditionally performed at 1.5T and any issues we have found to arisen with the change in field strength.
