Future Imaging Protocols
In summary, parallel-imaging techniques not only provide improved spatial and temporal resolution as well as the reduction of image artefacts, but also increase the diagnostic capabilities of magnetic resonance imaging through more comprehensive imaging protocols. This will allow a better evaluation of systemic diseases as well as more consistent detection and communication of pathologic findings.
