IRadimed Announces Release of Nonmagnetic MRI SpO2 Monitor

February 24, 2012 — IRadimed Corp. announced the launch of the iMAGOX 2460 nonmagnetic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) compatible SpO2 monitor with Masimo SET technology inside. iMAGOX incorporates a nonmagnetic design along with Masimo SET technology and a fully functional wireless remote control, giving clinicians the ability to safely monitor patients and interact with iMAGOX from outside the scanner room.

Like IRadimed's other MRI compatible products, iMAGOX is designed to work in the MRI and deliver safe, reliable patient readings. The system is intended for use in MRIs with magnet strength from 0.2T to 3.0T, and is completely operational up to the 10,000 Gauss line. The system also uses a specially designed fiber optic SpO2 sensor that, when used with the Masimo SET technology, provides reliable SpO2 readings during conditions of low perfusion and/or patient movement.

Unlike conventional SpO2 monitors, iMAGOX uses no wires to connect to the patient, which have been known to cause serious patient burns, and the system is not attracted to the magnet like other standard SpO2 systems. Its large screen permits the patient's SpO2 waveform and data to be viewed from several meters away. Transport to and from the MRI is made easy, as the monitor is lightweight and can be easily attached to an existing IV pole or bedrail. iMAGOX also provides an optional wireless remote display/control that does not require any installation and gives the operator complete visibility and control from outside the scanner room.

iMAGOX will be shown at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) in Vienna, March 2-5, 2012. The IRadimed booth will be located in Hall E at #511.

Example images for a control participant , a deletion carrier, and a duplication carrier. In the sagittal image of the deletion carrier, the thick corpus callosum, dens and craniocervical abnormality, and cerebellar ectopia are shown. For the duplication carrier, the sagittal image shows the thin corpus callosum and the axial image shows the increased ventricle size and decreased white matter volume.
