Dedicated MRI: diagnostic imaging systems and clinical applicationsAs early as 1993, we recognized the potential of MRI specifically dedicated to imaging joints and bones. Today, acceptance of our innovative and proprietary technology has made Esaote the leader in dedicated musculoskeletal MRI, with over 2,000 systems installed throughout the world, and a market share higher than 50%. Our dedicated musculoskeletal MR diagnostic imaging systems provide clinicians a wide range of applications for the knee, ankle, foot, hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder, hip and spine.
Our innovative G-scan Brio represents a significant revolution in orthopedic MR imaging applications: the magnet can be tilted from a horizontal to a vertical position, enabling patients to be imaged in a weight-bearing (stand-up) position.
All our dedicated tomography MRI systems are easy to use, provide operators direct patient contact, and deliver cost-effective, high performance imaging.
G-scan brio offers a revolutionary MRI approach that increases diagnostic accuracy and confidence for musculoskeletal applications. The new eXP Technology enables dedicated MRI to be performed faster without compromising image quality, whilst reducing overall power consumption and running costs. With the experience gained from the first generation G-scan systems, Esaote developed G-scan brio, a completely renewed Weight-Bearing MRI system featuring a new look, new ergonomics and new acquisition techniques.
The G-scan is a revolutionary system for all musculoskeletal applications, from a simple knee to weight bearing spine. It represents the future in musculoskeletal MRI as it offers additional diagnostic capabilities. In fact, thanks to its unique tilting design, the patient can be moved in a true weight-bearing position, allowing you to visualize the actual condition of pathologies.
The O-scan retains Esaote's tradition for outstanding image quality, imaging simplicity and user friendliness. The system features a very compact magnet with comfortable patient chair and covers all limbs and joints such as the knee, calf, ankle, foot, hand, wrist, forearm and elbow.
The S-scan dedicated MRI scanner represents the latest development of Esaote’s technology in tomography MRI. 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.
With Opera Esaote has merged the advantages of dedicated and open MRI to create a new high quality cost/effective system. This high throughput system, provides optimal musculoskeletal scanning capabilities and guarantees superb image quality, flexibility, cost-effectiveness and patient comfort.
The C-scan is a dedicated musculoskeletal MRI system specifically designed for limbs and joints examination such as the knee, calf, ankle, foot, hand, wrist, forearm and elbow. With its unique, ergonomic design it provides optimal patient comfort and avoids claustrophobic reactions. C-Scan combines excellent MRI capabilities, enhanced productivity, full connectivity, and superior cost-effectiveness. C-scan is easy to install also in a very limited space (required space 9 sqm).
