January 9, 2015 — Mediso Ltd. announced at the annual congress of the European Association of Nuclear Medicine the launch of new MRI subsystems with 3 and 7 Tesla field strength. This cryogen-free based technology is to be integrated into the nanoScan pre-clinical multimodality-imaging platform.
Since 2012, fifteen integrated PET/MRI and SPECT/MRI systems based on permanent magnets have been installed successfully. However, to satisfy the need of researchers, Mediso's portfolio has been expanded to include the new, compact, superconducting MRI system with a higher field strength.
In order to integrate the new magnets into the nanoScan product line, a strategic collaboration agreement has been signed with RS2D, developer of MR imaging systems, to create a new line of MRI Subsystems.
New MRI subsystems will be offered as standalone MRI or in combination with high-end PET modules, opening the way forward for PET/MRI systems with simultaneous data acquisition capability. These products complement the existing PET/MRI and SPECT/MRI scanners based on 1T magnet and will be also available as an upgrade package for these systems.
