Life science firm Aspect Imaging is set to unveil new WristView MRI system at the RSNA’s 102nd scientific assembly and annual meeting in the US.
The event will take place from 27 November to 2 December in Chicago.
WristView is a point-of-care hand and wrist MRI system, which produces effective MR images affordably and easily.
MRI of the hand and wrist will be useful to diagnose carpal tunnel syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, scaphoid fractures and other hand and wrist injuries.
WristView system, which does not require an RF-shielded facility, enables to scan from doctors’ clinics that was earlier only available through full-body system.
Without using special facilities or cooling systems, the WristView system can be placed anywhere for imaging.
Preliminary screening is expected be completed within five minutes, enabling to provide quality images that can be easily accessed by doctors.
According to Guideline Development Group (GDG) of the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), MRI is most accurate and only acceptable method for detecting scaphoid fractures.
The firm also produces eight different MR imaging and NMR systems for medical, advanced industrial and preclinical applications.
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.”
