1.2T open high-field MRI optimizes workflow while maximizing patient comfort

Hitachi Medical Systems Europe, Oasis, MRI, ECR 2015

March 5, 2015 — Hitachi Medical Systems Europe announced the next generation of Oasis, the open high-field 1.2T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system, at ECR 2015. New features help to overcome obstacles and prevent delays while optimizing workflow management and costs. Easy patient access makes OASIS highly suitable for interventional procedures.

The 270° viewing angle allows the patient an unobstructed panoramic view and a positive examination experience. Simultaneously, the operator has a clear view of the progress of the complete scanning procedure. The spacious set-up and calming atmosphere put claustrophobic, pediatric and bariatric patients up to 300 kg at ease, and the peaceful, ambient illuminated gantry helps to relax patients. The extra-wide patient table (82 cm) with in-gantry lateral movement, modern SoftSound technology for silent gradients and multiple coil connections offer efficient support for the operator.

The Oasis imaging platform is equipped with workflow-oriented features and advanced clinical capabilities. The Origin Clinical Study Library, Graphical User Interface (GUI), Intelligent Parameter Guidance and Real-time Image Quality Calculator are included for easy planning. Simultaneous scan, reconstruction and multi-tasked image processing keep throughput high and interoperability features ensure seamless picture archive and communication system (PACS) integration.

AutoPose automatically determines and places optimal main scan slice locations, ensuring high reproducibility and improving consistency in sequence planning for one button click examination. Isotropic volume acquisition (isoFSE 3-D) with high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and resolution allows the reconstruction of slices in any plane, in any tissue contrast and in any anatomy — one scan for unlimited images. Additive Arrangement Gradient Echo (ADAGE) uses combinations of multiple echoes to create high SNR and contrast-to-noise ratio (CNR) images with reduced chemical shift for improved grey/white matter differentiation and fluid/cartilage visualization. A flexible, user-selectable reconstruction matrix provides optimized image resolution.

The open and wide patient platform of the 1.2T high-field MRI is designed to increase patient comfort and reduce blur.
