Esaote has called upon 30 years of MRI experience to produce the Magnifico Open total body MRI system. The system is designed to meet clinical needs as well as operational and financial demands.
A range of receiving coils and state-of-the-art MR technology is said to offer excellent image quality, while the permanent magnet makes installation simple and keeps operating costs low. An open magnet and easily accessible table facilitate fast and comfortable patient positioning, which is suitable for claustrophobic patients and children.
The system is equipped with recent Esaote technologies such as: Speed Up to assure optimal image quality in reduced examination times; True-Motion real-time imaging offering a complementary approach to standard MRI for a more comprehensive clinical and diagnostic picture; and metal artefact reduction.
Esaote ceo Franco Fontana said: “In recent years, the technological evolution of MRI has seen major developments. At Esaote we have been working for over 30 years in the MRI sector to reach ever-new horizons and 2021 was, for us, a year with a wealth of new products, confirming our constant commitment to innovation and development of cutting-edge technologies.
“Today with Magnifico Open we are looking even more towards the future. With our experience, and thanks to continual cooperation with many medical and scientific partners, we are entering the field of full body MRI.”
The new system is currently CE mark and FDA pending.
