APERTO™ Lucent Plus

A permanent magnet MRI that improved the examination flow by new solutions for speed and automation.

The content on this page is intended to healthcare professionals and equivalents.

Prime Operation

Enhanced operability supports efficient and reliable diagnosis, together with ease of operation and image sharing capabilities.


Supports correct image cross-section settings and reduces strain on the operator

AutoPose is a function that supports slice line parameters.
This function allows faster set-up of the OM or AC-PC lines used in head examinations and reduces strain on the operator.
Prior settings such as teach/register and 3D data acquisition are not required.

Unified, eye-friendly colour to minimize eye strain

A user interface that is easy to understand and operate

A soft celadon-based colour set, has been adopted for the GUI (Graphical User Interface).
MRI imaging parameters that can be complex are more easily displayed on the Windows-based wide screen.

Customization of protocols

Supports efficient registration and alteration of protocols

Routine protocols can be easily registered and changed by the operator, even during the examination to optimize the settings according to the patient and clinical requirements.

Curved MPR

Reconstruction capability of various cross-sectional images from the 3D images

Arbitrary curved cross-sections can be reconstructed using data acquired through imaging.
In addition, multiple curved-sections can be reconstructed simultaneously.

User Interface (UI) suggestions

Supports alteration of imaging parameters

This function provides guidance for parameter settings.
During protocol change, several options are displayed to allow the operator to select the parameter most appropriate for that particular scenario.

Radial MPR

Offers simultaneous image reconstruction of multiple cross-sections

Radial MPR images are created which can be useful when diagnosing complex structural tissue such as within the knee joint.

DICOM Function

Offers various interfaces

The DICOM interface is included as standard in the Aperto Lucent Plus which adapts to the hospital’s current networks and which will continue to evolve and upgrade over time.
DICOM MWM*1, SWF*1, and PIR*1 functions are also supported.

IHE PDI Function*1

Extensive coordination for compatibility with the hospital’s inhouse and external network systems

Support for the IHE PDI*1 standard is provided to enable various data exchanges, such as image zoom and rotation display, with other systems supporting the PDI standard. Ability to write DICOM data and simple browser software*2 to a CD-R are also included.

  • *1 Optional.
  • *2 Cannot be used for diagnostic purposes
