Bore: The Verio has the shortest length of any 3T system on the market today, along with a 70-cm bore, the largest available on the market today.. These two attributes, which help reduce a patient's anxiety and discomfort, enable clinicians to expand care to otherwise hard-to-image patients, such as children, patients challenged because of pain and mobility, and the elderly. The larger space will also help when imaging claustrophobic patients because fewer patients will need sedation or refuse MR imaging services. Patient access is improved for both intensive care patients and MRI-guided interventional procedures, and kinematic studies can be performed easier.
Table: The Verio may prove particularly valuable in treating obese patients, an epidemic afflicting one in three Americans. Studies show that obese people may not be able to access necessary medical care -- particularly medical imaging -- due to the fact that in some cases they exceed a machine's bore capacity and/or table weight. The Verio meets these challenges by offering a bore that is larger than many conventional systems and a 550-lb table-weight capacity.
Tim: The Verio, with the power of Tim, has up to 102 seamlessly integrated matrix coil elements and up to 32 independent radiofrequency channels, enabling advanced clinical applications. Tim allows flexible combinations of up to four different coils that make patient and coil repositioning virtually unnecessary. For example, clinicians can perform a whole central nervous system exam in less than 10 minutes. By providing increased speed and accuracy, Tim helps makes every aspect of workflow more efficient and productive.
