Mayo Clinic has announced it has developed a series of MRI devices that make it easier to diagnose injuries and diseases that affect wrists, forearms, elbows, hands and fingers. Mayo worked with IBM Engineering and Technology Services and IBM Design Consulting Services on this solution. With recent FDA approval, the group plans to market these devices to other medical centers nationwide.
The Mayo Clinic BC-10 MRI Coils are highly sophisticated units used in taking detailed pictures of a particular part of the body. They produce high-resolution images at 1.5T and 3T. High-resolution images improve a physician’s ability to see small structures such as tiny ligaments and nerves in the hand. This means more accurate diagnosis of injuries and diseases, and in some cases, eliminating the need for invasive diagnostic procedures such as arthroscopy, the visual examination of the interior of a joint with a special surgical instrument.
