MEDRAD and GE Healthcare have announced the availability of the first endorectal coil for 3.0T magnetic resonance (MR) prostate imaging. The MEDRAD 3.0T Prostate eCoil™ is available for GE Signa HDx 3.0T MR scanners.
MEDRAD designed the 3.0T Prostate eCoil to produce accurate diagnostic images of the prostate that may enable early diagnosis and staging of prostate cancer. By giving clinicians more accurate images for use in planning and delivering targeted treatment, the eCoil may help them personalize the patient’s treatment.
The 3.0T Prostate eCoil gets closer to the problem than other imaging options to help clinicians get closer to the solution. The eCoil balloon conforms to the size and shape of the prostate for consistent contact between the gland and the signal-amplifying elements of the coil. The result is small field-of-view (FOV) and high spatial resolution, sensitivity, and specificity that yield clearer pictures of the prostate.
The Prostate eCoil is also available for 1.5T magnet strength environments and is one of MEDRAD’s Leading ImageTM MR Coil products.
