G-scan Brio: adds weight to your diagnosis Many symptoms and pathologies occur or are emphasized when the patient is in the weight-bearing position. Conventional MRI may not demonstrate the pathology related to particular symptoms whereas the G-scan Brio gives you a new point of view so you can accurately diagnose MSK pathologies which are affected by the weight-bearing position. G-scan Brio, the law of gravity With the G-scan Brio you can gain a more complete understanding of the joint under examination. The forces of gravity generate bio-mechanical changes in the human anatomy, so MR...

G-scan Brio: Real Time MRI G-scan Brio is an MRI system specifically developed to perform musculoskeletal examinations. Unlike a multipurpose MRI, all aspects of the G-scan Brio system, from coils to user interface, have been developed and optimized to perform musculoskekeletal MRI examinations in the most efficient and comfortable way. System handling and patient positioning therefore can be done by a single radiologist or technician. G-scan Brio comes with the real-time MR feature. Using a fast acquisition sequence, the touch screen display on the gantry will show in real-time the MR...

G-scan Brio: intuitive user interface The user interface is very simple and user friendly, routine exams can be performed by just a few mouse clicks. Even the most expert user will be fully satisfied as all scanning parameters can be personalized and the custom sequences can be stored and integrated in the normal menu structure for subsequent use. Thanks to its unique tilting design, the magnet unit can be rotated to move the patient into a true weight-bearing position. Normally the patient will be imaged first in the upright weight-bearing position and then in the traditional supine...
