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.
