The added space and comfort that Hitachi's Open MRI offers widens the spectrum of patients that your clinic can attract.
Having an open view of the surroundings is particularly important for patients suffering from claustrophobia and anxiety. The open architecture also accommodates patients who are larger in built, or those with disabilities restricting straight body positioning.
With a compact set-up of only 3 main units: the gantry, console and power supply system, Hitachi's Open MRI can be easily installed into small buildings with space constraints.
Hefty investment costs are also significantly eliminated as Permanent Magnet MRI systems do not require additional infrastructure for magnetic shielding, nor an equipment room.
Monthly running costs are also kept at a minimum as Permanent Magnet MRI does not require a cooling unit to maintain the magnetic field. In addition, Hitachi's Open MRI is optimized to use a low capacity power supply hence minimizing the variable costs involved.
Boosted by Hitachi's exclusive offer, a lifetime warranty* is guaranteed to ensure zero maintenance cost on your end.
Hitachi's Open MRIs are equipped with a fully motorized slide table which can be moved perpendicularly and laterally inside the gantry, to ensure easy patient positioning for target regions to be scanned at the iso-centre of the magnetic field for optimal imaging results.
Regions that require small FOV and high spatial resolution can be acquired with higher sensitivity solenoid receiver coils. The small diameter coil is tailored for easy fitting to position target regions to the center of the coil.
The latest upgrade in Hitachi Open MRI now automates pre-scan procedures, and integrates the unique algorithm, IP-RAPID to quicken scan times without compromise on image quality.
Motion artefacts caused by a patient's voluntary or involuntary body movement can be mitigated with RADAR, Hitachi's radial scan technology. This helps reduce repeat scans and significantly improves image quality.
Portal veins, renal arteries, and upper/lower extremity arteries can be visualized with superior clarity using VASC-ASL, a non-contrast MRA imaging function that uses 3D BASG to visualize the blood flow labelled with IR pulses.
Hitachi’s proprietary multi-slab MRA image quality enhancement function, FITT, significantly improves MRA image quality to aid in quick and easy diagnosis.
