CAAS MR Flow (Magnetic Resonance Flow analysis) enables one-click quantification of major vessel blood flow from phase-contrast MR images.

Key Product Features

  • Single click vessel border detection
  • Give anatomical designation for direct calculation of clinical results
  • Aliasing and offset correction
  • Analyze up to four phase contrast image sets

Key Results

  • Calculate forward and backward blood flow and visualize with color overlays
  • Calculate shunts and regurgitation fraction
  • Calculate mean, minimum and maximum velocity
  • Calculate and visualize flow displacement
