New Breast MR Unit Images Entire Chest Area

March 6, 2008 - The Aurora 1.5T Dedicated Breast MRI System features its UltraRODEO Plus fat and normal ductal tissue suppression technique, AuroraCAD integrated diagnostic software, Aurora SUPERSHIM and fully integrated and MRI-guided AuroraBIOPSY functionality.

This device reportedly utilizes a specialized breast-coil design which provides an elliptical “sweet spot” that images both breasts, chest wall and axillae in a single bilateral scan, without compromise in image contrast or resolution. The continuous, homogeneous image is optimal for evaluation of both breasts, said the company.
