Esaote SpA (Genoa, Italy) presented its Magnifico Open system, the next step in open whole body MRI, at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) 2022 held on July 13-17 in Vienna, Austria. This year, Esaote is also celebrating its 40th anniversary of innovation in ultrasound, dedicated MRI and healthcare IT solutions.

The technological evolution in MRI of the last years has seen important developments particularly in data acquisition and elaboration resulting in a substantial improvement in image quality and reduction of scan-times. Today, the majority of MRI installations are about outcome-based services that not only address specific clinical needs, but also operational and financial demands. Esaote was the first company to develop dedicated MRI systems for spine and joint imaging, as well as unique technologies, such as the tilting MR which enables clinicians to conduct weight-bearing MR studies of the anatomy.

At ECR 2022, Esaote presented its latest Magnifico Open system, which incorporates latest MRI technology for uncompromised diagnostic quality, combined with a permanent magnet that guarantees low operating costs. Featuring an open system, free coil positioning, laser alignment, split coil design, transparent headcoil and easy-access patient bed, Magnifico makes patient positioning easy, fast and comfortable. Not only is Magnifico the right system for claustrophobic patients but the open magnet simply makes it a comfortable MRI experience for all patients, particularly children. Additionally, Magnifico comes with a transparent headcoil for enhanced patient comfort.

Several pathologies are affected by the motion of a joint like e.g. impingement. In such cases, Esaote's True-Motion MRI offers a complementary approach to standard static MRI with dynamic real-time acquisition of the joint in motion. Magnifico MRI is also an optimal solution for patients with metal implants as the system has an intrinsic low level of susceptibility for metal with respect to traditional MRI. Together with the dedicated MAR sequences, Magnifico offers high quality diagnostics also in the presence of the majority of implants. Magnifico is also very easy to use with a user interface focused on getting the work done without losing the flexibility to customize scans whenever needed.
