The enlightened choice for high-field MRI
ECHELON Smart is Hitachi’s smart MRI concept which combines ‘Smart Quality’ for superb clinical images and sophisticated applications, ‘Smart Speed’ for reduced examination time, ‘Smart Comfort’ for an extraordinary quiet patient experience, ‘Smart Eco’ for low running costs and ‘Smart Space’ to offer the smallest possible installation footprint.
Superb Image Quality Realized by Sophisticated Technologies
The advanced specification of MRI sub-systems makes the most important impact on the delivery of image
quality without compromise. ECHELON Smart is equipped with powerful sub-systems which includes the
SmartENGINE which supports high quality imaging and high performance RF system to empower robust
Reduction of Total Examination Time
To boost your productivity, ECHELON Smart offers features that streamline workflow and enhance
throughput, such as AutoPose and Parameter Guidance function for easy and fast operation. Fast scan
capabilities and robust scan techniques to reduce re-scanning contribute to shorter scan times, and onconsole
analysis functions reduce the transfer time of data to the workstation. With the SmartSPEED
feature, your operational efficiency is improved.
Patient-friendly Quiet Examination
Technologies to reduce acoustic noise are one of the big challenges for the MRI market in a bid to create a patient-friendly imaging invironment. Hitachi’s SmartCOMFORT reduce up to 94% of the sound pressure.
It can be applied for a wide variety of image contrast sequences without prolonging scan times significantly or without limitation of applicable coils.
Ecological with Economical Running Costs
SmarECo provide ecological and economical features that minimize your daily running costs of the MRI system and its peripherals.
Features: - Zero Boil off
- Ecological power capacity
- Eco-mode to reduce energy consumption
Smart footprint and flexible layout
SmartSPACE encompasses the small foorprint and flexible site layout by extending the cable length between MRI gantry and electrical units in the machine room. This feature could facilitate the MRI system installation in your facility.
