Brings you to a new field

AIRIS Light MSK is the new compact and wide open MSK solution. Thanks to its innovative technologies provided by Hitachi, the system offers radiologists an advanced imaging solution alongside a well-engineered post-processing package. The system provides new imaging technology and work flow solutions that are able to improve the efficiency in MSK examinations, while achieving a high performance output.

Moreover, AIRIS Light MSK’s compact size can be easily fitted into multiple examination environments. With powerful gradients, the AIRIS Light MSK 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). 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:

Cervical Spine - Sagittal T2 FSE scan clearly shows spinal cord compression in C5/C6 level

Thoracic Spine - Sagittal T1 SE - Large 350mm field of view allows complete thoracic spine visualization

Lumbar Spine - Sagittal T2 FSE - Large disc herniation on level L2/L3 , with dehydration of the intervertebral disc

Shoulder - Coronal T1 WFS - Fat Water Separation technique provides images with fat signal separated in SE, GE and FSE sequences

Ankle - STIR Sagittal scan shows fracture and small bone edemas. The wide range of fat suppression techniques is available on AIRIS Light MSK

Wrist - Coronal T1 SE - Excellent T1 contrast using dedicated receiver coils allow high resolution scanning, detecting small changes in bone, cartilage and ligaments
