Oval Echelon MR

Hitachi Oval Echelon MR

The Widest Wide Bore in the Industry


Inspired by your Patients
Echelon Oval continues Hitachi’s commitment to patient-friendly imaging. The industry’s widest bore is complemented by the widest patient table, lowering to wheelchair height and featuring a 550lb. weight limit to accommodate the broadest variety of patient body types while maximizing patient comfort. A host of patient amenities including feet first imaging, adjustable in-bore lighting and ventilation further enhance the patient experience providing the highest level of patient comfort, security and accessibility.

The Oval’s revolutionary design merges outstanding patient and technologist benefits that stem from the exclusive ultra-wide oval bore with a suite of Workflow Integrated Technology (WIT) features, and leading-edge clinical capabilities. From patient arrival through exam completion Echelon Oval optimizes the entire process with comfort, efficiency and high performance imaging.

Echelon Oval brings together all the key attributes of a leading 1.5T MR system—patient comfort, accessibility, efficient workflow, and advanced clinical capabilities all covered by Hitachi’s industry leading customer support.

SynergyDrive for Efficient Workflow


SynergyDrive is the force behind optimizing Echelon Oval workflow, comfort and quality, encompassing all aspects of the MR exam. SynergyDrive brings together Evolution Software and Workflow Integrated Technology (WIT) to provide efficient and reliable patient registration, patient positioning and preparation to quickly move to a suite of automated and easy to use scan planning, acquisition and post processing tools.

Scan Set-up, Acquisition and Processing
Set-up
  • Intelligent Parameter Guidance provides real time parameter suggestions
  • Image Quality Calculator advises on resolution, SNR, CNR, and scan time when scan parameters are adjusted
  • AutoPose automatically positions slices for efficiency and consistency from patient to patient
  • CopyDrive for consistent slice positioning from sequence to sequence
  • Acquisition Plan enables one plane linked scan positioning with one click start
Acquisition
  • QuickScan protocols for brain, spine, knee and shoulder including a complete 5 minute brain exam
  • Isotropic imaging allows one acquisition with unlimited reformats – 1 click MPR
  • FatSep provides in and out of phase along with fat and water only datasets in one short acquisition
Processing
  • Single screen advanced processing tasks
  • Auto generated MIP tool and DWI, ADC and DTI maps
  • Auto DICOM store to multiple destinations
  • Auto subtractions for dynamic studies


Oval MR Patient Registration

Simplified and fast patient registration

AutoPose saves time and provides consistent results

WIT Mobile Table


The WIT Mobile Table delivers outstanding benefits to both patient and practice. Technologists can easily move the table to the patient rather than moving the patient to the table. This minimizes transfers for non-ambulatory and infirm patients.

The ultra-wide WIT mobile table measures 63cm, providing comfort, capacity, and safety for large patients, and simplified patient positioning. Feet first imaging for all exams and extra width promote patient compliance and alleviate anxiety.

A wide range of workflow and safety features including power elevation - even when detached

WIT Monitor and Controls


Enables the operator to review and adjust patient information without leaving the patient’s side. Wireless gating provides easy patient set-up allowing the operator to verify gating functions right at the gantry.

The operator can start, pause and restart scans while at the patient’s side to improve workflow by decreasing patient anxiety.

Review and update patient information at the gantry and start and pause scans

WIT Integrated RF Coil System


Hitachi’s integrated coil technology improves all three elements of MR imaging: patient comfort, workflow and image quality. The integrated head, body/spine coils reside within the table, delivering quick setup and positioning in combination with lightweight anterior coil attachments.

Automatic Element Selection chooses optimum coil elements, which not only enhances workflow, but also consistently produces the best image quality.
