Invivo’s Luminescence Breast Coil System Features Ergonomic Design

Invivo Corp.’s Luminescence advanced breast MRI coil system is for sites utilizing 8, 16 and 32 channel MRI systems.

The system is an ergonomic modular design with reportedly comfortable patient positioning accessories. The system is available with both interventional coil and an optional 16-channel diagnostic coil.

The Luminescence aims to deliver high signal to noise ratio, isotropic sub-millimeter voxel images, excellent image uniformity and parallel imaging performance, all with a fast acquisition time. The Luminescence 16 channel technology also optimizes the acquisition of advanced imaging techniques such as spectroscopy and diffusion.

The Luminescence Breast System is specially designed to provide access for interventional procedures with cranial access as well as improved lateral and medial access for minimally invasive breast interventions. This design minimizes distance to the biopsy site of commonly found upper-outer quadrant lesions.

Further aiding the clinician as they perform their MRI guided procedures, is a system powered fiber optic LED with 12 light points built into the coil design for optimal illumination of the interventional site.

Images in a 55-year-old screening participant. (a, b) Normal digital full-field mediolateral oblique (a) and craniocaudal (b) mammograms (BI-RADS category 1) show a heterogeneously dense breast (ACR category C). (c) Screening ultrasound image shows normal findings (BI-RADS category 1). (d) MR-guided biopsy enabled us to confirm the presence of an invasive high-grade triple-negative cancer (no special type [NST], pT1b, N0, M0). (d) Breast MR image shows a suspicious enhancing mass (arrow) in the left breast (BI-RADS category 5). Image courtesy of the Radiological Society of North America.
