MRI Quality Assurance


Published on

HQ Imaging helps radiology and research centers to obtain high-precision medical images, which are needed for diagnosis, therapeutic decision-making and fundamental research progress. Based on their in-depth expertise in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), HQ Imaging offers two main services: quality assurance and protocol optimization. Whether you need a shorter scan time per patient or you would like to improve image quality, the HQ Imaging team can tune every MRI sequence to your needs. In addition, the assured image quality means less repeat scans (e.g artefact reduction) and faster radiological readings (e.g. better contrast to noise ratio, adaption of geometrical parameters).

  8. 8. “We continuously work on the development of new imaging biomarkers including their translation from research into clinics. Therefore, potential sources of variance have to be limited as much as possible and regular MRI quality assurance is required. All necessary MRI QA procedures were implemented in our department by the experts from HQ Imaging and are still regularly used. I fully recommend the HQ Imaging QA services to anyone working in the field.” Prof. Dr. Heinz-Peter Schlemmer – German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) HQ IMAGING C o n t a c t u s f o r m o r e i n f o i n f o @ h q - i m a g i n g . d e
