A new 24-page publication from Hitachi Healthcare details the benefits of High-Field Open MRI and is now available for audiences interested in learning more about the technology and how it can help meet patient needs and produce clinical results.

Perspectives provides extensive information on the Hitachi Oasis 1.2T system, which provides cost-effective and high-quality imaging. Its open design offers unmatched comfort for patients who might not otherwise be able to tolerate a magnetic resonance (MR) exam, and the 82 cm-wide table can support patients weighing up to 660 pounds.

Story topics in the supplement include how HFO suits value-driven medicine, the orthopedic advantages of HFO MRI and how one physician grew his practice by dispelling open MRI misconceptions. In one case study, a radiology specialist shares how a Florida hospital is seeing strong results in abdominal imaging through using the Oasis system.
