Overlake Breast MRI offers new Aurora Dedicated Breast MRI System

Aurora Imaging Technology : 21 June, 2007  (New Product)
Overlake Breast MRI (OBMRI) has announced that patients in the Pacific Northwest now have immediate access to the Aurora 1.5T Dedicated Breast Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) System.
The Aurora System is the only FDA cleared dedicated breast MRI system that has been specifically designed for 3-D bilateral breast imaging and OBMRI is the first facility in the Pacific Northwest currently offering the Aurora System.

“I don’t believe there are other MRI systems that can offer better image quality and resolution than the Aurora Dedicated Breast MRI System,” said David Magaram, MD, director, OBMRI. “The Aurora images are excellent - at our centre, it has detected many cancers that would not have been found any other way.”

The Aurora System provides more accurate detection and diagnosis for the treatment of breast cancer, while also offering optimum patient comfort for women with the first patient table designed specifically for breast imaging.

“When we opted to obtain an MRI system at our facility, we had no use for a whole body unit because we are exclusively a breast centre,” continued Dr Magaram.

“Having the Aurora dedicated breast MRI system has positively impacted the care we provide our patients in large part due to the comfort provided by the Aurora table that was designed specifically to fit a woman’s body.”

Since the Aurora System was installed at OBMRI, it has served nearly 500 patients in the Pacific Northwest.

“We are thrilled to see that more facilities are selecting the dedicated breast MRI system for the exclusive use of breast imaging,” said Olivia Ho Cheng, president and chief executive officer, Aurora Imaging Technology.

“The unique anatomy of a woman was a primary consideration when designing the Aurora System. We are proud to say that Aurora is aiding in the fight against breast cancer by providing doctors with advanced imaging, and patients with the most comfortable breast MRI experience possible.”
