STAGE at 3T for a child with Sturge Weber Syndrome
STAGE has been utilized to image Sturge Weber in the same way that SWI can be used. In these patients, it is critical to differentiate regions of bleeding versus those that are calcified.
What do we look for?
- Differentiation of Calcium and Iron
- Vascular Abnormalities
The STAGE protocol can visualize the extent of Sturge Weber without the use of a contrast agent or exposing the patient to CT.
