Singapore-based Aspect Imaging will showcase its wrist MRI system, WristView at Radiological Society of North America 2016 (RSNA).
The device has been designed to produce high-quality MR images hand and wrist to facilitate a timely diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, scaphoid fractures and other hand and wrist injuries.
Compact and simple to operate, WristView can be placed at any part without requiring special facilities or cooling systems.
The device does not need an RF-shielded facility eliminating claustrophobic feelings associated with conventional full-body MRI systems.
It enables fast and effortless scanning from doctors’ clinics, which was previously only available through a full-body system.
Its procedure involves quick preliminary screening provides high-quality results which are easily accessed by doctors and in medical facilities.
A patient required to undergo a wrist exam, insert their arm into the MRI machine, without the need of a full-body scan.
Aspect Imaging founder, president and CEO Uri Rapoport said: “We are extremely excited to be exhibiting our unique MRI technology at RSNA for the first time.
“Our series of compact MRIs, including the new WristView system, are breaking barriers in the field of radiology, offering radiologists and medical experts new imaging solutions to make examinations far more effective and simple.
"X-ray is passé now that MRI is affordable and accessible.”
