O-scan Elite Dedicated MRI enables a comfortable MRI experience

The O-scan Dedicated MRI is designed for imaging the upper and lower joints and runs on a standard power outlet which eliminates the need for helium providing customers with a comfortable MRI process.

Esaote North America has installed and commissioned the latest version of the O-scan Elite Dedicated MRI at the East Brunswick location of University Radiology.

The O-scan Dedicated MRI is unique by being a scanner designed for imaging the upper and lower joints. The O-scan MRI features technologies like True Motion for real-time imaging of the joint in motion, AgilExam, an AI-based examination planning software, and MAR for postoperative follow-up (to eliminate artefacts from metal implants). O-scan MRI delivers Radiology & Imaging departments the ability to address MRI overload and backlog with a small footprint whilst being economically viable. The O-scan MRI runs on a standard power outlet and does not require helium. 

Dr. Eric Lazar, University Radiology, said: “University Radiology is pleased to be able to offer this uniquely comfortable MRI experience for claustrophobic patients. The Esaote Extremity MRI creates excellent diagnostic images of the elbow, wrist, hand, and fingers from the upper extremity and the knee, ankle, foot, and toes from the lower extremity. The patient reclines comfortably in an open-air environment while only the imaged body part lies within the machine. This is the first of its kind through our suite of 23 offices, and we are happy to welcome patients to our East Brunswick flagship office for this new service.”

Stephen Gibbs, MRI Marketing Manager, Esaote North America, said: “The O-scan MRI is specifically designed to image Extremities, and so can provide a workflow and patient-centric solution for Radiology & Imaging Centers. Esaote North America is committed to putting the best tools into the hands of the experts, such as University Radiology so that they can have imaging solutions that have operational, economic, and clinical benefits that can address patient needs.”
