Esaote G-Scan Brio MRI
Esaote G-Scan Brio MRI is a revolutionary, new MRI scanner using a unique “ Tiltable MRI™” technology. Unlike conventional Esaote Brio G-scan recumbent MRI scanners, the Esaote G-Scan Brio scanner is a revolutionary change in MRI technology that allows patients to be scanned in a variety of scanning positions including recumbent, standing or “weight-bearing MRI“, and every position between. This second generation MRI (2G MRI™) explain why patients with normal recumbent MRI scan have symptoms when they stand or bear weight.
Advantages of the Esaote G-scan Brio MRI
Open MRI configuration means the patient’s head is outside the scanner and eliminates claustrophobia
Esaote G-Scan Brio MRI utilizes high efficiency, Eight-Channel MRI receiver coils that produce high quality images using a low field strength MRI scanner.
Low field strength MRI scanners have a unique advantage for Spine MRI and Orthopedic MRI: induced metallic artifact that degrades the image quality of conventional high-field strength MRI scanners are almost non-existent using the Esaote G-Scan Brio MRI.
No need for metallic artifact reduction MARS protocol MRI sequence. *The permanent MRI magnet technology permits the unique “ Tiltable MRI™” functionality and lower maintenance costs. There are no expensive or potentially dangerous cryogens. Electric costs are a few dollars per day.
This innovative second generation MRI scanner technology (2G MRI™) allows doctors to see what tissue is compressed and painful when the patient is bearing weight. When the patient is lies down, the body weight and pressure are relieved and generally the patient’s pain is relived. It is not surprising that conventional recumbent MRI examinations fail to display why the patient hurts.
