December 5, 2008 – Hitachi Medical Systems America highlighted at RSNA 2008 advanced high-field applications for the OASIS 1.2T and Echelon XLS 1.5T MRI systems. Among the newer features are high-resolution dynamic breast imaging with TIGRE, comprehensive motion compensated free-breathing abdominal studies with RADAR, non-contrast MRA with VASC, brain ischemia assessment with Advanced NeuroSuite and white matter disease assessment with Diffusion TensorSuite.
The OASIS employs a 1.2T vertical field magnet and its reportedly unobstructed viewing angle is said to put even difficult patients at ease, leading to decreased scan times and increased throughput.
The Echelon XLS 16 channel RF and 33/150 gradient system is said to deliver high performance clinical results and also enables feet first positioning for all exams.
