Easier patient positioning
The Vantage Orian has a dockable patient couch and wider gantry opening that allow personnel to move all patients into position easily.
“For the roughly 1,500 bed-ridden patients who are examined by MRI at the clinic each year, it makes a big difference, whether we need to move patients twice or four times, as was previously the case with an MR compatible trolley,” explained Dr. Leibecke. “The Vantage Orian’s Dockable Table means we can avoid 3,000 repositioning procedures per year, which also places considerably less strain on our personnel.”
One of the quietest MRI’s available
Pianissimo and Pianissimo Zen technologies help minimize noise from the system. “Some sequences, such as 4D angiography of the head, can be performed without any of the typical loud MRI noises,” remarked Dr. Leibecke.
Significantly expanded portfolio
Providing a good fit for specialist trauma and general work, the Vantage Orian has already enabled the clinic to extend its work.
“So far, the whole (training, service and application) operation has run smoothly and we haven’t had any unexpected downtime whatsoever. And has also represented a significant expansion to our portfolio,” added Dr. Leibecke.
