  • Descripción del producto
    GE SIGNA EXCITE MR SURGICAL OPTION (MR450w Surgical Suite). || The MR Surgical Option when integrated with the GE Signa¿ 3.0T or 1.5T magnetic resonance scanner (previously cleared K041476) can be used to produce head and whole body magnetic resonance images that are high resolution, high signal-to-noise ratio, with short scan times. The Signa¿ Excite MR system with Surgical Option is indicated for use as a diagnostic imaging device to produce axial, sagittal, coronal and oblique images, spectroscopic images, and/or spectra, dynamic images of the internal structures and organs of the entire body, including, but not limited to, head, neck, TMJ, spine, breast, heart, abdomen, pelvis, joints, prostate, blood vessels, and musculoskeletal regions of the body. The images produced by the Signa" Excite system with Surgical Option reflect the spatial distribution of protons (hydrogen nuclei) exhibiting magnetic resonance. These images and/or spectra when interpreted by a trained physician yield information that may assist in diagnosis. The GE Signa" Excite system with Surgical Option can provide MR images at various stages of a surgical procedure, and provides the capability to transfer a patient to the MR system table directly from a surgical table, or patient transport system. Images can be obtained using the MR scanner body coil, or local surface coils, and the surface coils used with the integrated system may/can accommodate sterile draping for surgical procedures.
