Optima™ MR450w GEM - 70cm

 

Optima™ MR450w 1.5T with GEM Suite 

The Optima™ MR450w with GEM Suite continues our emphasis on patient comfort without compromising quality or capabilities. It combines the benefits of wide-bore imaging with GEM, or Geometry Embracing Method, incorporating an approach to MR imaging that reflects the importance of conforming the geometry of the equipment and technology to that of the patients.  

Optima MR450w 1.5T with GEM SuiteBuilt on a fully redesigned MR platform, the Optima™ MR450w offers:

  • OpTix digital RF system - signal digitization in the magnet room to help improve SNR.
  • 50 cm usable FOV - accommodate larger patients.
  • High-fidelity gradients - optimized control of gradient performance to generate outstanding performance in demanding applications such as fMRI, cardiac, diffusion, and FIESTA.
  • Acoustic Reduction Technology (ART) - reduce acoustic noise for brain, spine, and MSK exams without compromising image quality.
  • MAGiC (Magnetic Resonance Image Compilation)

    For the first time ever in the industry, you can generate multiple image contrasts in a single MRI scan including T1, T2, STIR, T1 FLAIR, T2 FLAIR* and PD contrasts of the brain in a single acquisition.

    One scan that can do the work of many, with images acquired in as little as half the time to acquire separate sequences, fully integrated in a seamless workflow.

    *It is recommended to acquire conventional T2 FLAIR images in addition to MAGiC.

  • MAGiC

    Complete flexibility for multiple contrast changes

    You can change the contrast of the image by manipulating TR, TE and TI even after the scan is completed and the patient has exited the MR room. MAGiC processing will provide you any desired contrast paving the way to new diagnostic capabilities.

    MAGiC even goes beyond standard MR weighted images by processing raw data into parametric T1, T2 and PD maps.

Features

  • GEM Suite

    The GEM Suite is an integrated system that combines high-density RF surface coils and innovative software technologies designed to provide uncompromised image quality, improved workflow and increased patient comfort to minimize anxiety and motion.

    Key features include feet-first imaging for all anatomies, flexible designs that comfortably embrace the patient, comfort tilt to improve brain and neck exam form, reduced exam times through fewer coil exchanges, and comfortable variable density padding design that minimizes pressure points. Each component of the GEM Suite can be used individually or combined for complete head-to-toe imaging.

    • GEM Express Patient Table - Redesigned with an integrated posterior array and variable density pad set, the detachable GEM Express patient table is designed to enhance patient comfort, enable set up outside the exam room, and quickly extract patients in emergency situations. 
    • GEM Posterior Array - Embedded high-density posterior array with optimal coil element geometry that enhances spine, abdomen, cardiac, and lower extremity scanning.
    • GEM Head and Neck Units - Consisting of four imaging components (a head base-plate, an anterior neuro-vascular face-array, the GEM cervical array, and the open face adaptor), the GEM HNU units may be positioned at either end of the table to support feet-first or head-first imaging. The open-face design provides a patient-friendly, open feel to minimize visual obstructions. For c-spine imaging, the base plate may be used with the innovative GEM cervical array, or with the open face adapter to accommodate large or claustrophobic patients.
    • Comfort Tilt - Elevates the superior end of the GEM head and neck units and is designed to improve comfort while enhancing image quality by positioning the anatomy closer to the coil elements.
    • GEM Anterior Array - A lightweight, flexible, thin and pre-formed array to embrace patients’ various sizes and shapes. With 54 cm of S/I coverage, the anterior array permits upper abdominal and pelvic imaging without repositioning the patient and supports parallel imaging in all 3 planes.
    • GEM Peripheral/Vascular Array - A high-density PV / lower extremity array that facilitates imaging of the thighs and lower legs with parallel imaging in all 3 planes. The coil incorporates an innovative self-supporting hinge design between the upper and lower elements to accommodate patients of various sizes with simplified set-up.
