Specialist MRI radiographer Jodie Edwards with the Optistar Elite injector.
With the installation of a 3.0T GE MRI scanner, Medway Maritime Hospital in Kent also chose an Optistar Elite injector system from Covidien.
Head of MRI Martin Mitchell says: “The injector system has proven easy to use and the multi-program function allows us a wide range of injection protocols that can be tailored to each examination. The use of the “drip mode” has been helpful for maintaining line patency during long examinations.”
Optistar Elite features an intuitive control console with a current status bar for ease of use and an auto retract function for removal of syringes.
