• Features a new sophisticated design to humanize MRI;
• This system offers a 70 cm bore for enhanced patient comfort and 50 cm field of view with uncompromised image quality over large anatomies;
• GEM Suite of Coils embraces the patient, helping to minimize anxiety and motion during an exam by naturally following the contours of the human body.

This new wide bore 3.0 Tesla MR system addresses patient demand for a better and more comfortable scanning experience. In particular, the new patient-friendly design accommodates patients who are usually difficult to scan, such as larger, claustrophobic, elderly or very young patients, or those who are in pain and require a larger imaging system. Additionally, GE Healthcare’s Discovery MR750w, combines next-generation clinical applications and a full 50 x 50 x 50 cm field of view with excellent homogeneity and enables users to reduce exam time and scan large anatomies with fewer scans, compared to previous generation systems. It helps enable higher patient throughput and satisfaction.

Imaging technology is only as useful as the insight it provides clinicians. The thoughtfully-built Discovery MR750w provides the power of a 3.0T magnet with the open architecture of a 70cm wide bore. Through fully automated and independent RF pulse amplitude and phase control, MultiDrive RF Transmit produces consistently clear 3.0T images.

Gradient speed, accuracy and reproducibility often determine the success of demanding acquisitions like fMRI (functional MRI), and DTI (Diffusion Tensor Imaging). The Discovery MR750w gradient and RF performance is optimized to shorten TR’s and TE’s to produce sharp and clear images.

GE’s Optical RF (OpTix) offers high channel count, analog to digital-optical signal conversion inside the scan room to minimize noise and signal degradation but away from the patient to enhance comfort.

“Under that sleek exterior is some of the most advanced technology we’ve ever built into an MR,” said Jacques Coumans, General Manager, Premium MR, GE Healthcare. “Our goal has been to deliver a 3.0T system with a 70cm bore with no compromises.”

GE Healthcare’s advances in RF coil design are made possible through the use of thinner, lightweight, flexible material that can be used with a variety of body types, allowing easier patient positioning. Crafted to embrace the patient, these flexible coils make for a more relaxed scan experience. This also makes it easier for technologists to correctly position their patients without strain or difficulty.

The GE Healthcare GEM Suite includes a high density GEM Posterior Array embedded within the detachable Express patient table, the GEM Head & Neck Unit with comfort tilt, the GEM Anterior Array, and the GEM Peripheral Vascular/Lower Extremity Array. Covering 98 percent of all exam types, the GEM coils can be used individually or combined to provide head to toe patient coverage. The GEM suite enables automatic selection of the configuration that best fits the selected region of interest. It includes a total 205cm scanning range, feet first or head first scanning for all anatomies, and design features to embrace patients of a wide variety of shapes and sizes.

Intuitive Applications
The Discovery MR750w offers the latest advanced applications to help utilize the full potential of 3.0T MR imaging. GE-signature clinical applications portfolio provides visionary techniques that bring visible results and can help clinicians grow their practice. New breakthrough applications such as IDEAL IQ provides a quantitative fat content assessment in the entire liver, or MR Touch, an MR elastography-based imaging technique that helps evaluate tissue stiffness. Combined, these two rapid and completely non-invasive techniques have potential to aid in early detection and evaluation of diffuse and focal liver disease. These are just two of the many insightful applications available on the Discovery MR750w.
