I have been speaking to a neuro and radiologist regarding Dr Haake's protocols. The radiologist said that he does not have easy access to a Siemns machine, however, he said that a "SWAN" scan on a GE MR machine is similar. I checked it out on the web, and it would appear at first glance to be good.
With SWAN, you can:
•Visualize major vessels and large vascular structures.
•Reproducibly image and accurately delineate small vessels and microbleeds.
•Assess iron and calcium deposits in tissue.
•Consistently generate exquisite images with this push-button, robust acquisition and automatic reconstruction algorithm.
•Image the whole brain in 3D high resolution in just 4 minutes.
•Make more accurate, more confident differential diagnoses in patients with hemorrhages, cerebrovascular and ischemic brain diseases, traumatic brain injuries, arteriovenous malformations, neurodegenerative diseases and a variety of other lesions.
