S-scan: The Next Step In Office MRI

The Complete Musculoskeletal MRI That Makes Sense

Esaote has designed the S-scan with eXP Technology, an optimized MRI scanner that covers all musculoskeletal anatomy, from foot to shoulders including the most important spine segments including L and C-spine. It is perfectly in line with today's strive for efficient and economic health care and a sensible choice for any practice with a substantial musculoskeletal work-load.

Esaote has integrated years of experience in developing and producing dedicated MRI systems into the S-scan, a complete and efficient solution optimized specifically to meet the demanding needs of MSK professionals.

Esaote, Market Leader In MSK MRI Systems

Musculoskeletal MRI the second most requested MRI study behind neuro imaging. Esaote’s focus is MSK MRI and we have become the world leader in that area. Esaote systems are used daily in many clinics and hospitals all over the world for routine clinical use as well as for research. Esaote systems are unique as they are extremely easy to use and combine excellent image quality with optimum patient comfort.

Efficiency With S-scan

An efficient MRI system will provide you: ease of use, simple patient workflow, cost effectiveness and outstanding image quality. S-scan has been developed to provide all of those features and more. The open design for fast and easy patient positioning, gantry display with real-time, DICOM worklist, network integration, no cryogens and everything in a small foot print. It all adds up to make S-scan an efficient and cost effective
MRI regardless of whether you perform one or twenty examinations per day.

S-scan: Easy Patient Access

Easy patient access is one of the features that distinguishes the S-scan as an ideal system for more advanced applications such as MRI arthrography. The wide opening and compact magnet provide easy access to the patient.

 

S-scan: Open Gantry And Rotating Table

S-scan features a very wide, asymmetric rotating table. This wide table not only makes patient positioning very easy, it also gives maximum stability and comfort to the patient for an easy setup and better images.

S-scan: Real-Time Positioning

Fast error free positioning with the real-time feature that includes fast sequences and a display on the system gantry.

S-scan Brio: Intuitive User Interface

The S-scan is easy to learn as it uses Windows® functionalities. The interface and protocols are custom designed for musculoskeletal imaging which speeds up and simplifies the examination procedure considerably.
Even the most expert user will be fully satisfied as all scanning parameters can be personalized and the custom sequences can be stored and integrated in the normal menu structure for subsequent use.

  • Intuitive user interface: easy to use Windows® based user interface;
  • A complete software package: supplied with an extensive range of tools to display, analyze and process images.

S-scan Easy To Install And Maintain

S-scan is a “one room” MRI system which means that the complete system, magnet, electronics and console
can be installed in a single room of only 20 m2 (238 ft2).

  • S-scan is based on an optimized permanent magnet so no cryogens and no complicated cooling systems are required.
  • Light patented RF shielding available. Esaote's dedicated shielding is a pavilion style independent shielding that can be installed without any renovation to the space.

S-scan Compact Configuration

The S-scan also offers a compact configuration (optional) for smaller installation sites. A specially designed compact bed is provided which can be accommodated in an RF pavilion of just 9 m2 (100 sq ft).
