Open Magnetic Resonance Imaging

The open MRI scanner offers benefits for all patients.

 Optimum comfort and confident diagnoses.

Our new open MRI scanner - the Panorama High Field Open (HFO) from Philips -provides a wide area. As a result the patient can lie completely comfortably and relaxed during the examination. The open construction permits a 320 degree panoramic view; one’s eyes can wander unimpeded.

Benefit: The patient area in the Panorama is three times as big as with tunnel-based systems. Instead of it feeling narrow it feels wide.

At last, there’s space for everyone. The Panorama-HFO makes it possible to carry out a MRI examination even on those people for whom conventional tunnel devices are not an option: people with claustrophobia and those who are severely overweight.

Benefit: The open construction of the Panorama MRI scanner provides space for all patients and doesn’t even give them a chance to get anxious.

The open MRI scanner provides space for precise images: the wide examination couch can be shifted about in such a way that there is always optimum imaging of the relevant region of the body. The high image quality permits confident diagnoses.

Benefit: Even very small internal body parts are imaged precisely and clearly by the Panorama-HFO.

The examination room itself is also generously proportioned. This gives the patient the freedom to have the examination carried out in the safe vicinity of a familiar companion in the room.

Benefit: You don’t have to be alone during the examination.

A coordinated lighting concept with calming light effects ensures a comfortable atmosphere and feeling of being at ease. This makes it easier for the patient to relax during the examination and improves the image quality and the diagnostic accuracy.

Benefit: The calming light experience relaxes the patient and contributes to more certain diagnoses.
