Rotating Delivery of Excitation Off Resonance-RODEO®
Many factors can affect the quality of a breast MRI image. Adequate fat suppression and ductal tissue suppression are both essential for detecting the full spectrum of enhancing lesions. The acclaimed Rotating Delivery of Excitation Off Resonance (RODEO) proprietary pulse sequence is designed for selective water excitation. Fat is not excited, resulting in fewer artifacts. Compared with other water excitation methods, RODEO is more efficient and produces cleaner images and fewer artifacts. Motion artifacts, especially cardiac and respiratory motion are reduced using RODEO versus conventional scanners. RODEO has built-in fibroglandular tissue suppression for better imaging of dense breasts.
