Improved patient comfort and exceptional image quality are a reality with installation of the uniquely designed Philips Panorama High Field Open (HFO) MR system. A sweeping, nearly 360-degree open viewing angle allows patients to always see outside the magnet. They can maintain reassuring visual and in some cases, even physical contact, with staff, parent, or relative. The 160-centimeter wide aperture provides a relaxing, non-claustrophobic MR experience for all ages and sizes of patients.
And image quality is never sacrificed. The Panorama’s powerful high field open magnet provides the MR signal equivalent of most closed (cylindrical) MR systems, delivering high-resolution images. Add a significantly large field-of-view, and physicians at Tanner have the opportunity to conduct critical orthopedic studies and to perform specialized interventions not possible on a closed system.
Philips Panorama HFO has been designed with the customer in mind and offers excellent patient comfort and access, particularly for children, elderly patients, clinically obese, and those suffering from painful sports injuries.For more information on Open MRI at Tanner, speak with your physician.
