MRI technology specialist, ScanMed of Resonance Innovations LLC, will be introducing its new Orbit and Mandible Array and Targeting System at this year’s AAPOS (American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus) Annual Meeting in Palm Springs from April 2-6, 2014.
The Orbit and Mandible Array provides high-resolution images of orbits as well as anatomies within the region of the mandible – two areas in which MRI is demonstrating increasing clinical utility. The dedicated, easy to position, semi-flexible design fits comfortably over the patient’s eyes or jaw and is strapped into place using the provided restraint strap and optional positioning pad.
This phased array coil can be configured to work on four, eight or higher channel count systems. The design uniquely offers improved SNR needed for more aggressive protocols, including strabismus studies. Designed to interface with an orbit targeting system, this product provides a fiber optic illuminated target on which the patient focuses as directed/controlled by the MRI technologist.
“My patients, medical group and I have been fortunate to early adopt ScanMed’s innovative and well-designed Orbit and Mandible Array,” says Dr. Omandi Nyong’o of the Palo Alto Medical Foundation. “Our experience exceeded expectations, with engaged, knowledgeable scientists and engineers from ScanMed providing individualized and accurate testing and installment of this coil into our workflow. As a result, I have been able to provide my patients with a very high standard of diagnostic and surgical ophthalmic care with precision magnetic resonance imaging.” Dr. Nyong’o explains, “Prior to ScanMed’s coil, with standard imaging it was impossible to attain adequate detail of structures within the orbit. I am delighted that my patients, especially with more complex orbital disease, have directly benefited from better diagnostic and therapeutic surgical care.”
