Hitachi Medical Systems America receives FDA clearance for its Oasis MRI system

Hitachi Medical Systems America : 02 October, 2007  (New Product)
Hitachi Medical Systems America has announced FDA clearance to market its Oasis magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system, the latest in the company’s line of MRI products.
Oasis features high performance with Hitachi’s proprietary 1.2 Tesla vertical field magnet technology inclusive of high magnet homogeneity and higher order active shim. The system is based on an open architecture magnet design.

“Oasis is the answer to many of the troubling product tradeoffs in MR,” said Sheldon Schaffer, vice president and general manager, MR and CT. “With magnetic field strength of 1.2 Tesla, a high performance gradient system coupled with an 8-channel Radio Frequency (RF) system and unique Hitachi-designed RF coils, Oasis provides a platform for high performance imaging in a comfortable patient setting.”

“Oasis reflects Hitachi’s commitment to providing patient-centric imaging solutions while giving physicians the diagnostic information they need,” said Shawn Etheridge, director of magnetic resonance marketing with Hitachi, “Patients now have an unrestricted viewing angle and the diagnostic benefits of the most powerful vertical field magnet ever designed for whole body clinical use.”
