Magnetization Prepared 2 Rapid Acquisition Gradient Echoes

Magnetization Prepared 2 Rapid Acquisition Gradient Echoes (MP2RAGE) is a fast 3D T1 sequence with a very high contrast that creates superior grey matter/white matter differentiation, showing a higher brain tissue and lesion contrast in multiple sclerosis patients. (Wheat Ridge)

Metal Artifact Reduction Software

Metal Artifact Reduction Software (MARS) ensures the best quality images are produced by minimizing the image artifacts and distortion caused by metal implants throughout the body. Commonly this is used evaluating the spine after surgery with fusion hardware in place. (Thornton, Uptown)

Motion Correction in 3 Planes

Motion Correction in 3 Planes addresses both in-plane and through-plane motion artifacts. (All locations)

MRI Brain with Cerebral Spinal Fluid Flow

MRI Brain with Cerebral Spinal Fluid (CSF) Flow evaluates the flow of CSF around the brain, brainstem or spinal cord. (Superior)

Susceptibility Weighted Imaging

Susceptibility Weighted Imaging (SWI) is an MRI sequence that is exquisitely sensitive to venous blood, hemorrhages, and iron storage, making it commonly used in the diagnosis/treatment of head injuries and concussions. (Uptown, Castle Rock, Superior, Aurora, Highline, Lakewood, Thornton, Lafayette, Wheat Ridge)

Diffusion Tensor Imaging

Becoming more common in the treatment of tumors and brain injuries; Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) is used to visualize, assess, and build 3D models of white matter fiber tracts of the brain. (Aurora, Uptown, Superior, Castle Rock, Highline, Lafayette, Lakewood, Thornton, Wheat Ridge)


NeuroQuant, a medical software, provides volumetric measurements of brain structures and compares the volumes to normative reference data adjusted for age, sex, and intracranial volume. This is very useful following patients with dementia, seizures, and neurodegenerative diseases. (All locations)

*Protocol, Sequences, and Advanced Services may differ by center location. Please contact your Diagnostic Imaging Specialist to verify if the desire imaging is available at your preferred location.
