Dedicated Extremity MRI Scanner
The great advantage is the open nature of the scanner as opposed to the closed claustrophobic nature of the traditional MRI systems. This together with ergonomic table design makes the examination far more pleasant for the patient. The O-scan easily accommodates larger patients up to 150Kg.
The unique patient couch can rotate to accommodate patients of all body habitus, allowing positioning of the area of interest in the centre of the scanner, whilst optimising patient comfort. The combination of ease of patient positioning whilst maintaining patient comfort together with the absence of any claustrophobic effects, allows excellent quality images to be obtained without the movement artefacts so often seen with conventional MRI scanners.
