Hitachi Healthcare Americas Introduces SynergyDrive MRI Workflow Solution

November 21, 2017 — At the 2017 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting, Nov. 26-Dec. 1 in Chicago, Hitachi Healthcare Americas (HHA) will demonstrate its SynergyDrive MR (magnetic resonance) workflow engine. SynergyDrive comprehensively addresses the bottlenecks in the MR scanning process from start to finish – from patient registration to post-processing and image sharing.

SynergyDrive is standard with the Echelon Oval 1.5T MR system that features the widest patient bore (74 cm) in the industry and the widest patient table (63 cm), according to Hitachi.

SynergyDrive addresses speed of throughput with automated patient registration, pre-population of scanning protocols, streamlined patient positioning and setup, along with its Auto Image Load feature, which helps efficiently prepare the next scan for seamless transition. The Oval provides a comfortable environment for the patient with its ultra-wide bore, wide table and various gantry tools such as gating confirmation and start/pause buttons that enable patient-side setup and scanning to occur. Features like the Workflow Integrated Technology (WIT) coil system and Auto Element Selection feature ensure an optimum setting for each patient and deliver high-quality images.

SynergyDrive also includes a number of sequences and image processing tools to improve image quality and reduce callbacks. RADAR motion compensation, FatSep, RAPID parallel imaging and non-contrast MR angiography (MRA) image sequences deliver fast, high-quality images while reducing the amount of time the patient must remain motionless.
