GE Healthcare has introduced Geometry Embracing Method (GEM) Suite of surface coils in the US.

The GEM Suite is designed for use with the Optima MR450w 1.5T wide bore magnetic resonance imaging system.

The GEM Suite features flexible lightweight material, padding and comfort tilt positioning which help to obtain excellent image quality for small Field of View (FOV) detail studies and whole-body reviews.

The GEM Suite consist of a set of receive-only radio frequency surface coils including the Express Table and GEM Posterior Array, the Head & Neck Unit, the Anterior Array, the Peripheral Vascular/Lower Extremity Array and Flex Coils.

The combined features of the entire Suite are designed to facilitate high resolution, signal-to-noise (SNR) imaging from the top of the head down to the feet, while maximizing the comfort of patients across many different shapes, sizes and situations.

Syracuse Orthopedic Solutions is set to deploy GE Healthcare’s GEM Suite Surface Coils to help increase patient comfort while undergoing magnetic resonance exams.

Syracuse Orthopedic Solutions Medical Imaging and DME Services director James Colone said the GEM Suite coils are flexible so they conform to the patient’s body and they especially like the Comfort Tilt Head/Neck coil that finally allows them to comfortably scan kyphotic patients.
