Fishers, Ind.-based Esaote North America announces the installation of the latest version of ts O-scan Elite Dedicated MRI scanner at the East Brunswick, N.J., location of University Radiology.                                                                                    

Designed for imaging the upper and lower joints, the O-scan Dedicated MRI features technologies like True Motion—which enables real-time imaging of the joint in motion— AgilExam, an artificial intelligence-based examination planning software; and MAR for postoperative follow-up (to eliminate artefacts from metal implants). Moreover, the O-scan MRI runs on a standard power outlet and does not require helium.

“The Esaote Extremity MRI creates excellent diagnostic images of the elbow, wrist, hand and fingers from the upper extremity and the knee, ankle, foot and toes from the lower extremity,” says Eric Lazar, MD, a radiologist at University Radiology. “The patient reclines comfortably in an open-air environment while only the imaged body part lies within the machine. This is the first of its kind through our suite of 23 offices and we are happy to welcome patients to our East Brunswick flagship office for this new service.”

Stephen Gibbs, Esaote North America’s MRI marketing manager, also spoke out about the scanner, commenting: “The O-scan MRI is specifically designed to image extremities and can provide a workflow- and patient-centric solution for radiology and imaging centers. Esaote North America is committed to putting the best tools into the hands of the experts, such as University Radiology, so that they can have imaging solutions that have operational, economic, and clinical benefits, which can address patient needs.”
