Mean Curve Evaluation (B-line and E-line)

Job aid for post processing using the Mean Curve Evaluation

Mean Curve Evaluation (B-line and E-line) syngo MR Systems with B-line and E-line Software Mean Curve can be used to evaluate contrast uptake in dynamic scanning, as well as other dynamic applications 1. Load Series into Mean Curve Task Card a. Open Patient Browser b. From the Local Database select your series (e.g. dynamic, pre- and post-contrast, TI scout, etc.) i. Hold Ctrl + Left Click on each series if separate (not needed if single dy- namic series) ii. Note: Subtraction series can be also be loaded if desired c.
