The new Hitachi Elite Open MRI scanner at MedTel’s Ridgeway Hospital Open MRI Centre in Swindon is proving to be a great success, with positive feedback from patients.
Its airy open design and a weight capacity of 500lbs is ideal for patients who are unable to be scanned in a conventional tunnel-style MRI either due to size or claustrophobia. Noise reduction technology also ensures a quieter, more pleasant experience.
The Airis Elite continues the tradition of Hitachi’s leadership in advanced Open MR technology, providing clinical capabilities that rival those of many high field closed type systems.
