At an event held today at Hospital for Special Surgery, GE Healthcare (NYSE: GE) introduced MAVRIC SL, a novel magnetic resonance (MR) imaging technique designed to address the growing clinical need to more accurately image soft tissue and bone in patients with MR Conditional-labeled implants, such as joint replacements and other instrumentation. According to a Hospital for Special Surgery study published today in The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, MR imaging can detect inflammation of the joint lining (synovitis) in patients with metal-on-metal hip implants long before symptoms appear, allowing for a more conclusive diagnosis and effective planning for follow-up care.
