September 19, 2007 - MEDRAD announced the availability of the 3.0T Prostate eCoil MR Endorectal Coil compatible with magnetic resonance (MR) scanners made by Philips and Siemens, increasing patient access to prostate MR, an emerging imaging procedure for early diagnosing and staging of prostate cancer.
The 3.0T Prostate eCoil conforms to the size and shape of the prostate for consistent contact between the gland and the signal-amplifying elements of the coil. The result is small field-of-view (FOV) and high spatial resolution, sensitivity and specificity that yield clearer pictures of the prostate. These pictures provide information needed by clinicians to diagnose and stage cancer and also to plan and deliver targeted treatment, such as radiation therapy.
The Prostate eCoil is also available for 1.5 magnet strength environments and is one of MEDRAD’s Leading ImageTM MR Coil products.
