Hitachi aimed to inspire attendees at RSNA 2009 with its "bore-less" Oasis MRI system. Oasis is designed to provide high diagnostic performance and patient comfort. Combining MR electronics of the best high-field equipment - fast gradients and multi-channel RF technology with Hitachi-designed Zenith RF coils - with Hitachi's proprietary 1.2T open architecture vertical-field magnet, Oasis is a new generation of MR systems.

Statistically significant clusters (red-colored) showing group differences (Control vs. Football) in white matter strain along the primary (F1) and secondary (F2) fibers. While body of corpus callosum (BBC) showed relative shrinkage in Football group, the other clusters showed relative stretching of fibers. PCR: Posterior Corona Radiata, PLIC: Posterior Limb of Internal Capsule, SCR: Superior Corona Radiata, SLF: Superior Longitudinal Fasciculus, SCC: Splenium of Corpus Callosum.
