The "OpenSky" Upright MRI with MgB2 superconductive magnet
MROpen provides exceptional patient comfort, delivering a light MRI examination in a relaxing and reassuring environment. You can walk into the scanner and you can sit, lie slightly backward, lie horizontally or even stand. With no barrier between the patient and the surrounding environment, patients can see around them at all times or enjoy watching TV while comfortably seated in the scanner undergoing an MRI procedure. All this simply can’t happen in conventional closed MRIs or even in “traditionally open” (C-shaped) systems. Claustrophobic reactions have so far never occurred in any one MROpen clinical site. Patient anxiety appears like a memory of the past.
