Partnership Offers New 1.5T MRI

November 12, 2010 — A new partnership has resulted in a new 1.5T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system.

Cerner Corp. partnered with Phi Health, a healthcare company dedicated to bringing the technology sector paradigm to healthcare – the idea that advances in technology bring better performance at a lower cost. The first example of the Cerner and Phi effort is Memex, an innovative, superconducting 1.5T MRI system.

Clients have the option of purchasing a new Memex or Memex “Green.” Memex Green uses the customer’s existing 1.5T magnet core (non-vendor specific) with new Memex subsystems, including coils, electronics, software, bed and covers. Using an existing magnet core rather than a new magnet reduces the carbon footprint of an MRI system by 168 metric tons. Cerner and Phi also integrated Phi’s post-processing cardiac software, called Marisa, with Cerner’s RadNet solution, which enables technologists to complete a typical one-hour cardiac study in as little as 10 minutes.

Example images for a control participant , a deletion carrier, and a duplication carrier. In the sagittal image of the deletion carrier, the thick corpus callosum, dens and craniocervical abnormality, and cerebellar ectopia are shown. For the duplication carrier, the sagittal image shows the thin corpus callosum and the axial image shows the increased ventricle size and decreased white matter volume.
