Weil Foot & Ankle Institute installs New MRI
New OrthOne Open High Field MRI-- The magnet architecture permits consistent, very high quality imaging of the extremity powered by a formidable 1-Tesla superconducting magnet optimizing musculoskeletal imaging.
Patients requiring an MRI of the foot, ankle or knee/ lower extremity benefit from a totally non-claustrophobic, quiet, quick, comfortable and convenient experience on the high field extremity system. Because it's designed specifically for extremity applications, no attachment of surface coils or other devices to the imaged anatomy is required. The patient's anatomy is always in the "sweet spot" of the magnet.
Patient Convenience and Comfort - A truly open MRI system.
Completely open design – no claustrophobic tube – only the extremity to be imaged is placed in the magnet.
Ergonomically designed movable chair for optimal patient comfort.
Comfortably accommodates patients up to 350 lbs.
Quiet operation – no loud pulses or noise.
Faster scan times comparable to whole body MRI units – 30 minute average patient study time.
Non-threatening environment–ideal for all patients especially elderly clients/children.
Because the OrthOne is a high-field MRI, doctors can perform surgery with confidence based on the high-resolution images.
A modern Windows-based user interface offers detailed control over scan parameters. Presaturation and Fat Saturation (as well as STIR and a full library of sequences) are standard. The Superconducting magnet delivers outstanding image quality at very fast scan speeds.
A comfortable, non-threatening, non-claustrophobic MRI device that creates scans with extremely high quality images. The scan is performed with you sitting in a comfortable chair. The only part of your body to go into the magnet is the part being scanned.
