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.

Example images for a control participant , a deletion carrier, and a duplication carrier. In the sagittal image of the deletion carrier, the thick corpus callosum, dens and craniocervical abnormality, and cerebellar ectopia are shown. For the duplication carrier, the sagittal image shows the thin corpus callosum and the axial image shows the increased ventricle size and decreased white matter volume.
