“Our decision to purchase Ingenia Elition was based on the image quality and ease of use,” says Dr. MacKay. “We really feel that the images we get from the Elition 3.0T scanner are high quality and more artifact-free than what we see from other systems. Also, the console of the Elition allows our techs and researchers to do an amazing amount of things without having to get into pulse programming. Just sitting at the console, you can do a remarkable number of things with this scanner.”
“What we didn’t foresee beforehand was how much patients would love the scanner,” says Dr. MacKay. “They find it so much nicer to be inside the wide bore Elition with its Ambient and In-bore experience.
They can see the progress bar that tells them how far they are in the protocol and how much time is left, or the little clock when they have to do a breath hold. These may seem little things, but they make a big difference, particularly because patients participating in trials or research studies often have to stay quite long in the scanner.”
“Bringing patients into the room and positioning them on the table is certainly fast now, since we can move the table without having to landmark with certain coils”
