Airis Light - 0.25T Permanent Magnet
AIRIS Light is the state-of-the-art Open MRI which features not only easy operation with its laterally aligned table and siting flexibility with its compact design, but also a wide variety of imaging techniques (advanced imaging technologies) to expand diagnostic capabilities.
AIRIS Light provides new imaging technologies and workflow solutions that improve the efficiency of examinations.
Easy Operation for Users and Friendliness for Patients
Laterally Aligned Table
The adoption of a laterally aligned table has realized a combination of compactness and ease of use of MRI systems. The floating-structure table enables quick setting of a target region at the center of the magnetic field, where high-quality images can be obtained. In addition, the table realizes easy positioning of a region deviated from the center of body, such as a shoulder or knee, at the center of the magnetic field.
The design gives friendly impression to patents. It allows their relatives to accompany and communicate with them during scanning. This feature expands the possibility of MRI imaging of patients who feel uncomfortable inside gantry, especially children.
High-sensitivity Solenoid Type Receiver Coils
Open MRI systems use a vertical magnetic field and solenoid type receiver coils. They are more sensitive than receiver coils of horizontal magnetic field systems. Even a solenoid type joint coil is sensitive in wide area and offers a large field of view.
Cost and Performance Desired by Management
AIRIS Light's small leakage of the magnetic field makes its required space of MRI scan room small. In addition, AIRIS Light does not require an equipment room, a water cooling system or its related devices which are usually necessary for superconductive MRI systems. Therefore, the system fits into a small space in a medical facility.
Sentinel* Customer Support for AIRIS Light
AIRIS Light is compatible with Hitachi's customer support system, Sentinel*.
Sentinel* is a system which observes the operational status of your MRI to support its stable use.
* Users are required to set up the network environment compatible with the service. The contents of the service may vary depending on the extent of contractual coverage.
High Quality Imaging that Satisfies Needs of Doctors
RADAR (Motion artifact reduction function)
RADAR is an imaging techniques designed to mitigate motion artifacts caused by physical motion, respiration, etc., by filling the k-space radially, not linearly. It is developed for practical use, by making it applicable to any cross-sections, body regions, as well as various pulse sequences.
VASC-ASL* (Non-contrast MR angiography function)
VASC-ASL is a non-contrast MRA imaging function that visualizes blood flows labeled with IR (Inversion Recovery) pulses using 3D BASG (balanced sequence) in the abdomen. It is designed for imaging the portal veins and renal arteries where blood flows at a high speed.
