WAUKESHA, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Two new 1.5T MR scanners from GE Healthcare, the Optima* MR360 Advance and Brivo* MR355 Inspire, have recently received 510(k) clearance. Redesigned with new enclosures symbolizing GE’s Humanizing MR strategy, both systems are engineered to address the demand for increased performance, and reduced total cost of ownership for the facility while providing a comfortable experience for the patient. “Overall, I was pleasantly surprised with the image quality, especially the quality of abdomen and pelvis images, which are excellent when compared to 3T,” said Tamotsu Nomura, Chief Technologist at Ishikawa Hospital in Osaka, Japan who owns the first Optima MR360 Advance in the country. Dr. Gloger of Verbundklinikum Landkreis Ansbach Klinik, Rothenburg, who owns the first system in Germany said, “After a smooth and fast installation, my radiographers learned very quickly how to scan, including those with minimal MR experience.”
