Open Your Vision, Make a Smart Choice.

AIRIS Vento has been created to offer a complete MRI solution around a flexible design concept for limited spaces, whilst also achieving excellent image quality, ease of operation and patient comfort. With AIRIS Vento’s truly open design, we are leading the way in open MRI.


Efficient Operation

One of the important challenges in MRI is improving throughput. Ease of operation together with image sharing capabilities enhance workflow and support efficient and reliable diagnosis.


High-precision Imaging

One of the most significant factors required for high definition imaging relies on the performance of the magnetic circuitry. Our magnetic circuit technology and unique diagnostic function enables imaging of body regions that can frequently be challenging in conventional MRI systems.


Designed for Comfort

MRI examinations are known to be time consuming and easily affected by motion artefacts. To acquire high-quality images, a comfortable and relaxed examination environment is essential. The wide open gantry and compact gantry design of AIRIS Vento reduces anxiety and provides patients with a high degree of comfort during MR exams.


For more than 30 years, we have been leading the way in open MRI. With more than 7,000 MRI systems delivered worldwide*1, we are at the forefront of Open MRI technology

Low running costs together with an attractive initial investment accelerate your MRI business and offer an excellent return on investment

In permanent magnet Open MRI technology, the magnetic field remains strong over the years with barely any change. Unlike superconductive MRI, there is no need for additional equipment and infrastructure in order to maintain the magnetic field, thereby keeping the costs low. A low capacity power supply means the initial power system cost can be kept low, and lowering energy consumption reduces monthly running costs too. The AIRIS Vento does not require a cooling system negating the need for a complex and costly infrastructure and the installation area can be minimized as a result.


Ease of Installation

* Shielding is required for all planes, including ceiling and floor surface.

Reduced construction costs with easy siting

MRI installation usually includes two types of shielding: RF shielding to block any high frequency noise from the outside and magnetic shielding to suppress leakage of the magnetic field from the inside. However, a permanent magnet MRI system generally does not require any specific magnetic shielding, so the cost of construction is reduced. Removing many of the construction processes usually associated with superconductive systems, results in faster and easier installation ensuring your Open MRI is up and running in a shorter timeframe.


Small Footprint

* The area for standard layout of scan room is 5 m x 4 m.
* Actual layout will vary according to installed environment.

AIRIS Vento’s compact design significantly reduces the space required for installation

AIRIS Vento consists of three main units: the gantry, console and power supply system; fewer than its superconductive counterpart. The magnetic field
leakage is also kept low, and in turn, the imaging room can be small. As an equipment room is unnecessary, the overall footprint is reduced and the space saved can be used for other purposes.

Sentinel Customer Support

This ensures that your system is kept running smoothly and efficiently through round the clock monitoring. It provides proactive first class reliability for stability and maintenance.
