Brain Volume imaging is a high-resolution 3D imaging technique designed to produce heavily T1-weighted isotropic images of the brain. 

BRAVO deploys 3D IR-prepared FSPGR acquisition to produce isotropic T1-weighted volumes.  The center of k-space is oversampled and serves as the calibration data for the parallel-imaging reconstruction. Innovative 2D ARC parallel imaging helps reduce scan time and minimize parallel imaging artifacts.

  • Scan once, reformat into any plane
  • Reliably visualize even small and subtle lesions
  • Automated, rapid, whole brain volume exam
  • Excellent T1w optimized for grey-white matter contrast also for BOLD studies

“Fusion of BRAVO images with tractography and fMRI results in READY View can assist in planning tumor resections.”

Dr. C Oppenheim, 
Sainte-Anne’s, Paris, France



MR scanning has not been established as safe for imaging fetuses or infants. Carefully compare the benefits of MR versus alternative procedures before scanning to control risk to the patient. A physician needs to decide to scan pregnant or infant patients.
