The report compared complete brain exams that were acquired by the site’s routine scan (11 minutes 50 seconds) and by accelerated acquisition (5 minutes 50 seconds, 50% scan time reduction). Acquired images were processed and reviewed blindly by acknowledged neuroradiologists. The results demonstrate definite preference towards IIR-processed fast MR scans, for all evaluation characteristics including scan time reduction, and image quality.
