VRI cliams that the new Oasis combines a comfortable patient experience with technology to make imaging procedures as quick and smooth as possible.

The Oasis is further enhanced by an array of anatomically specific receiver coils that allow advanced imaging applications ranging from vascular to orthopedic to women’s health.

VRI said that the Oasis system offers the medical community a new open MRI alternative with high-field strength performance for patients suffering with the traditional closed-type MRI units.

Valley Radiology Medical Associates (VRMA) president Maria Matsumoto said that they have been very pleased with the image quality and versatility of Oasis MRI system.

Hitachi MR & CT vice president and general manager Sheldon Schaffer said that they are excited to build relationship with VRI and are pleased that the Oasis is the first high-field open MRI system in the California Bay Area.
