Here is a list of commercial-product MRI abbreviations, from marketing materials and MR system user-interfaces. Error corrections are welcome!


If a manufacturer does not have an acronym for a technique it does not does not mean that particular technique is not available; sometimes a marketing name is introduced from one vendor whilst other vendors use a generic name for a method.

Additionally, similar techniques may not produce the same results; whilst manufacturers’ offerings may be based on the same general MR physics methods, their equivalence in terms of practical functionality and/or clinical utility should not be assumed.
