Brings you to a new field

Hitachi has brought ‘Open-MRI’ one step further in its evolution to provide assistance to medical professionals who work at the forefront of healthcare.
With AIRIS Light, we have achieved a break-through in price performance whole-body MRI, providing new imaging technologies and work flow solutions that improve the efficiency of your examinations while maintaining a high cost performance. Moreover, AIRIS Light’s compact size allows it to be easily fitted into multiple examination environments.
With powerful gradients, the AIRIS Light allows to perform a virtually unlimited variety of advanced imaging techniques, including those previously associated exclusively with high-field MRI (f.e. fat-saturation/CHESS and Radial Acquisition Regime/RADAR). Even with high patient throughput, its image quality is uncompromised.

Hover over each coil's name to display a diagram indicating the corresponding application area:

Foot - Saggital T2 FatSepFSE provides homogenous fat supression for confident imaging results

Brain - FLAIR axial scan with RADAR (Radial Acquisition Regime) motion compensation technique enables clear and motion-free imaging

Shoulder - Coronal T2 WFS (Fat Water Separation) technique provides images with fat signal separated in SE, GE and FSE sequences

Knee - Sagittal T2 FSE scan with high resolution acquisition and reconstruction matrix and thin slices shows slightly injured ASL ligament and all details of anatomy of the joint

Lumbar Spine - Sagittal T2 FSE - Large 350mm field of view allows complete lumbar and sacral spine visualization

Wrist - Coronal T2 * Gradient Echo the lateral patient table enables easy positioning and optimal image quality
