The CAIPIRINHA (controlled aliasing in parallel imaging results in higher acceleration) software is part of Siemens' syngo MR D13A software package for parallel MRI scanning. The protocol enables acquisition of higher-quality 3D volumetric interpolated breath-hold sequence (VIBE) T1 images through higher acceleration factors, according to the company.
MR image acquired with 7-sec breath-hold with Siemens' CAIPIRINHA software.
CAIPIRINHA will be included as a standard feature with Siemens' D13A software for the Magnetom Avanto 1.5-tesla and Magnetom Verio 3-tesla scanners.
