초록

본 연구의 목적은 MRI 검사 시 multitransmit 기법의 적용으로 인한 검사시간 단축의 유용성을 알아보고자 하였다. 연구방법은 2015년 7월부터 동년 9월까지 고관절 MRI 검사를 시행한 환자를 대상으로 multitransmit 기법 적용 전-후 고관절의 T1, T2 강조영상을 획득하여 대퇴골두와 장요근의 SNR과 CNR, 그에 따른 검사시간을 비교 평가하였다. 연구결과, multitransmit 기법 적용 전-후 T1, T2 강조영상 모두 SNR과 CNR은 유의한 차이가 없었으며, 검사시간은 적용 전에 비해 T1 강조영상은 42.8%, T2 강조영상은 49.7%로 감소하였다. 결론적으로 MRI 검사 시 본 연구와 같이 multitransmit 기법을 적용하면, 기존의 검사시간 단축관련 연구들에서 문제가 되었던 영상의 질 저하 없이 검사시간을 획기적으로 줄일 수 있으며, 향후 다양한 검사에 multitransmit 기법을 적용한다면 MRI 검사의 고질적 문제인 검사시간을 단축할 수 있어 매우 유용하리라 사료된다.
