MR Cardiac Reading step of Cardiac Analysis Workflow Job Aid

MR Cardiac Reading step of the Cardiac Analysis Workflow Job Aid syngo.via MR The MR Cardiac Reading step enables you to view and evaluate different kinds of cardiac images using the common tools. 1. From the Patient Worklist, load the appropriate data set into the MR Cardiac Analysis Workflow  If the examination has been correctly mapped, double click to load  If manual mapping is required, right‐click the examination and select Open with > MR Cardiac Analysis 2. The Cardiac Reading Step has these pre‐configured steps: a. Overview: Displays all kinds of available cardiac images for the current evaluation in an overview layout MR Cardiac Analysis Q + MR Cardiac Reading Overview Functional Dynamic Tissue Characterization Combined Flow MR Cardiac Function MR Flow Quantification b. Functional: Reading area is divided into one short‐axis region and one long‐axis region. Buttons are provided to switch between functional real time and segmented images. All segments are synchronized to time. This synchronization is active when the Movie tool is activated.

Dynamic: The left side of the reading area displays dynamic stress images and the right side displays dynamic rest images. One large viewing segment is for the clinical reading process which provides all tools. The large viewing segment is synchronized regarding time. One group of small gallery segments (bottom left) that displays all available short‐axis images. One group of small gallery segments (bottom right) that displays all available long axis images. The gallery segments are for efficient data selection. d. Tissue Characterization: The reading area is divided into four regions. The top area displays short‐axis tissue characterization overview images. The second area displays long‐axis tissue characterization overview images. The third area displays short‐axis high‐resolution tissue characterization images. The bottom area displays long‐axis high‐resolution tissue characterization images. In the first segment of each area, buttons are provided to switch between magnitude and phase sensitive images. MAG-HighR ...- PSIR-HighR .. CURRENT -- > Current. MR.DE.

The upper left segment displays functional images, the upper right segment displays the tissue characterization images, and the lower segments display the dynamic stress and rest images. In each of the four segments, the corresponding buttons are provided Published by Siemens Healthcare GmbH © Siemens Healthcare GmbH, 2018 Page 2 of 5 Job Aid | Insert Title of Job Aid Effective Date: XX/XX/XXXX | HOOD/HILS to allow for switching to the corresponding image type. For a combined viewing, all four segments are spatially synchronized. Measurement tools are in the upper right corner menu. All markings and measurements can be marked as findings. f. Flow: Displays the phase and magnitude images for visualization purposes. The left reading area displays phase contrast images, the right reading area displays the corresponding anatomical images. Each of these areas is divided into one large viewing segment, intended for the actual clinical reading process. One group of gallery segments, displaying all available flow images grouped by slices, position and orientation. 3. Creating/Editing MR Cardiac Reading Findings – For MR Cardiac Reading, it is possible to document the results of the visual reading process in an AHA‐conforming segment model in Findings details. a. Open the Findings details dialog box by clicking this icon on the upper right side of the Findings Navigator. o Findings Navigator Name Value Source b. Select a segment of the heart model. Note: At the top of the dialog box, tabs are provided to allow for switching between segment models for Functional, Dynamic, and Tissue characterization (DE). Each tab card compromises an AHA‐conforming segment model.
