GE Healthcare, Waukesha, Wis, announced the 510(k) clearance and CE marking of its MR solution for head and neck imaging in the presence of radiation therapy (RT) immobilization devices. GE will highlight the system at the European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO), beginning April 19 in Geneva, Switzerland.

Part of GE’s MR radiation oncology offerings, the 1.5T GEM RT open head and neck suite combined with GE’s Optima* 450w GEM MR scanner, enables high-resolution, large field of view scanning of the head and neck. The array was designed specifically for imaging for radiation therapy planning. Its open design and flexible GEM coils that conform to the patient’s anatomy offer the opportunity to scan a patient comfortably with their face area fully open.
