Prime Imaging

Our magnetic circuit technology and unparalleled diagnostic functions enable crisp, high-definition imaging of clinically challenging regions and applications.


Motion reduction capability

RADAR uses radial scan technology to mitigate motion artefact caused by a patient’s body movement due to voluntary or involuntary motion.
Available with T2WI but also T1WI and FLAIR imaging in any plane and any body region including the head and shoulder joint, which are susceptible to respiration movements and the cervical spine that can be affected by swallowing movements.
RADAR can help reduce repeat scans and improve image quality.


Offers non-contrast MR angiography technique

VASC-ASL is a non-contrast MRA imaging function that uses 3D BASG (Balanced SARGE) to visualize the blood flow labelled with IR pulses.
This function is used to produce images of portal veins, renal arteries, and upper and lower extremity arteries.


Acquire high contrast, 3D, high spatial resolution images

This function offers high-speed T1WI imaging through Gradient Echo with IR pulse.
This allows high contrast, 3D, high spatial resolution images to be acquired.
This function can be used for measurement of volume data when imaging the head.

VR (Volume Rendering) Function*1

Supports diagnosis of complex vascular structures

Volume rendering, a reconstruction method, can be created on the console.
The blood flow movement can be determined stereoscopically compared to MIP, providing support to diagnosis of regions with complex vascular structures such as the head.

Reduces magnetic field non-uniformity which cannot be corrected with primary shimming

SuperShim is a technology that increases the uniformity of the static field, which is of paramount importance in MRI.
Non-uniformity in the magnetic field cannot be fully corrected with first order shimming which performs linear correction.
SuperShim is provided to reduce nonuniformity in the magnetic field by enabling high order shimming.

High Reconstruction Imaging

Supports high-definition imaging

This function enables high spatial resolution imaging which result in higher definition images of joint regions required for orthopedic areas.
An image reconstruction matrix of 2048 x 2048 is achieved through the highspeed imaging processor.

FatSep Function

Provides fat suppression imaging with high SNR

The FatSep (fat water separation) function enables imaging of different TE to acquire in-phase and out-of phase images simultaneously.
The two types of images are added to form fat suppressed images.
Through this additional process, FatSep provides fat suppressed images with a good SN ratio and clarity.
It can also provide a Fat image through a subtraction process.

High Sensitivity Receiver Coils

Especially effective for images with a small FOV and high spatial resolution

Regions that require a small FOV and high spatial resolution as in orthopedics need higher sensitivity receiver coils.
The solenoid coil adopted in the Aperto Lucent Plus delivers this high sensitivity.
The small diameter coil is tailored to fit the body and the target region easily positioned to the centre of the coil where sensitivity is at the highest.
This is optimal for acquiring images of regions that require a small FOV together with high spatial resolution, as in orthopedics.
