Compact and lower cost MRI for extremity scanning

Demonstrating how to use the O-Scan are specialist neuro radiographers Adam Willetts and Christine Rosney.

Royal Preston Hospital, part of the Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, has invested in Esaote’s O-Scan compact MRI unit for extremities scanning.

General manager of the trust’s imaging directorate and medical illustration department Russell Dineley said: “We have two hospital sites, and operate three high field, large bore MR systems to meet a significantly rising demand for MRI, as well as cross-sectional imaging.

“Our requirement was for additional MRI procurement that was cost-effective, hence our decision to purchase the O-Scan, which requires less space, less power and lower capital expenditure in terms of associated building costs, compared to a large bore system.”
