Designed around the shape of the body to accommodate the broadest patient spectrum, Echelon Oval embodies our innovative spirit and unwavering commitment to patient comfort without compromising image quality.
- Echelon Oval brings together all the key attributes of a leading 1.5 MR system - patient accessibility, workflow, and clinical capabilities all covered by Hitachi's industry-leading customer support.
- The widest patient opening (74cm) of any 1.5 MR system
- Workflow efficiencies at each stage of the exam with Hitachi's Workflow Integrated Technology (WIT)
- High quality, whole-body imaging applications that matter most to your practice
Hitachi's SynergyDrive is the latest in complete efficiency and workflow engines to ensure the fastest patient throughput, best patient comfort, and highest quality imaging.
Maximized Patient Comfort
Echelon Oval boasts the widest bore available (74cm) with the widest patient table (63cm) for maximum patient comfort. Head first imaging for every exam further makes anxious patients more at ease.
Non Contrast Imaging
VASC-ASL enables excellent depictions of vasculature without a contrast agent. An MRA alternative for patients with compromised renal function in renal artery and portal vein imaging.
Metal Artifact Reduction
Advanced 3D FSE metal artifact reduction sequences, create images with greatly reduced metal artifacts, allowing visualization close to metal implants not able to be achieved with conventional scans.
Contrast Free Neurology Imaging
3D pCASL sequences provide non-contrast brain perfusion acquisitions with analysis similar to dynamic susceptibility contrast perfusion but without the risk of a gadolinium-based contrast agent.
Time Resolved Imaging
FatStep TRAQ enables multiple arterial time phases in a single breath hold greatly increasing temporal resolution at the peak enhancement time.
HOAST (Higher Order Active Shimming Technology) enables exquisite RF fat saturation and excellent large FOV fat suppression in all planes with two levels of shimming.
Workflow Integrated Technology (WIT)
Oval's RF receiver system manages multiple coil connection points on the table. The WIT receiver coil system provides integrated coil arrays that can be used individually or in combination with other WIT coils to give the operator maximum flexibility for positioning patients of all sizes.
SoftSound scan sequences provide a dramatic reduction in the audible noise of MR scans enhancing patient comfort and compliance.
Industry-leading RADAR (RADial Acquisition Regime) is a powerful tool for collection motion suppressed images without sedation or excessive patient restraint. RADAR is applicable to all coils, anatomy and slice planes.
