The recently released Hitachi Oasis reportedly features Hitachi's proprietary 1.2 Tesla vertical field magnet technology inclusive of high magnet homogeneity and higher order active shim, all in an open architecture magnet design that reportedly gives patients an unrestricted viewing angle.
The FDA cleared MRI system includes a high performance gradient system coupled with an 8-channel Radio Frequency (RF) system and Hitachi-designed RF coils, providing a platform for high performance imaging in a comfortable patient setting, according to the company.
The Hitachi AIRIS Elite continues the tradition of Hitachi's role in Open MR technology, reportedly providing clinical capabilities that rival those of many high-field closed-type systems. AIRIS Elite's high field homogeneity enhances field-of-view image quality and RF Fat-Sat aided by linear and multi-channel higher order active shimming, according to its manufacturer. Its Quad four-chnnel flat MER transmit coil and scalable DualQuad with RAPID parallel imaging are supplemented by a full range of MA coils.
Also featured at RSNA, the Echelon 1.5T is the newest member of Hitachi's MR product line. Echelon's subsystems deliver advanced applications, high patient throughput and outstanding image quality, according to its manufacturer.
