Scanner Manufacturers

WARRENDALE, Pa., Sept. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- MEDRAD today announced the availability of the 3.0T Prostate eCoil (TM) MR Endorectal Coil compatible with magnetic resonance (MR) scanners made by Philips and Siemens. MEDRAD introduced the 3.0T prostate eCoil for GE scanners in 2006.

"High-resolution prostate MR imaging is important to many people, especially to the hundreds of thousands of men who are diagnosed with prostate cancer each year," said Joe Havrilla, senior vice president, MEDRAD MR Business Unit. "By developing the eCoil for all three major scanner platforms, we increase patient access to prostate MR, an emerging new imaging procedure for early diagnosing and staging of prostate cancer."

The 3.0T Prostate eCoil conforms to the size and shape of the prostate for consistent contact between the gland and the signal-amplifying elements of the coil. The result is small field-of-view (FOV) and high spatial resolution, sensitivity, and specificity that yield clearer pictures of the prostate. These pictures provide information needed by clinicians to diagnose and stage cancer, and also to plan and deliver targeted treatment, such as radiation therapy.

Professor Jelle Barentsz, University Medical Center -- Nijmegan, The Netherlands, has used the MEDRAD eCoil on a Siemens 3.0T MR scanner for several years. "Using the endorectal coil at 3.0T results in such an enormous gain in spatial resolution that accurate detection of extracapsular tumor growth, in the millimeter range, is possible," said Barentsz.

Dr. Adam J. Jung, PI Prostate Imaging Group, University of Texas Health Sciences Center San Antonio, is using the MEDRAD eCoil on the Philips 3.0T Achieva MR sca
