New MRI Technologies to be Displayed at RSNA

November 10, 2010 – Several enhancements for an MRI video entertainment and functional MRI (fMRI) system will be on display at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) meeting in Chicago.

Resonance Technology will debut a low-profile, noise-canceling headset made of ultra-pliable material that can accommodate a full range of coils. A digital microphone lets the patient easily communicate with the technologist.

The company is also showcasing a flexible active thin film transistor (TFT) video panel/reflective entertainment viewing system. It supports comfortable patient positioning for a full range of imaging exams. The system also delivers HD video and digital stereo sound.

The new mirrored headset simplifies patient setup and enhances the entertainment system’s reliability and flexibility by eliminating all wired headset connections. The new system also can mirror the MRI console display. If the technologist or radiologist wants to see the MRI patient images in the imaging suite itself, the panel system makes this possible.

Additionally, the company will debut CinemaVision, a digital camera system that is mounted directly on the MRI bore and lets the technologist watch the patient during the scan.

The new Super Extended Graphics Array (SXGA) is a head-mounted display with a built-in eyetracker. It delivers a high-resolution image and a 40-degree field of view, bringing unprecedented realism to the fMRI environment for precise research results. The display is compatible with MRI devices up to 7T strength and is compatible with the Siemens 32-channel coil.

A new squeeze ball is programmable for a full range of verbal commands.

Also, the company has improved funcLAB, its turnkey fMRI solution. It brings together brain activation capabilities in a simple-to-operate package. It is delivered in a small form-factor PC that fits even the tightest MR workspace, but can still meet complex 3-D presentations.
