(Northridge, Ca.), an innovator in high-performance MRI-compatible technology, introduces at the 2009 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) conference MagnaView HD, a revolutionary new concept in MRI- compatible video for patient comfort and a broad range of additional applications. Also capitalizing on advancing technologies, the company debuts a jumbo, high resolution functional MRI (fMRI) heads-up display fine-tuned for today’s most advanced MRI coils. A unique, flexible and versatile high definition (HD) LCD, new MagnaView HD is the centerpiece of a unique reflective video viewing system that supports ultra-comfortable patient positioning for a full range of imaging exams. The adjustable 1920 x 1080 resolution 24-inch LCD panel can be mounted directly on the back or front of the MRI bore and is combined with a mirrored audio/video headset to deliver all-digital entertainment directly to the patient. The MagnaView HD system also provides industry-leading all-digital stereo sound and supports entertainment from a wide range of digital media and live television. Studies have shown that when engaged in entertainment while in the MRI, anxious and claustrophobic patients are better able to complete their exams. The high-resolution panel also is the choice for crystal clear, realistic images for fMRI. When connected externally to an MRI console, patient images can be seen in the magnet room as an exam is in progress so that technologists need not exit into the MRI room to monitor the exam. The new MagnaView HD system offers multiple benefits, according to Resonance Technology CEO and founder Mokhtar Ziarati. “This new reflective delivery method is extremely comfortable and reliable. Patient positioning is significantly easier without the complexity of wired connections. The mirrored headset simplifies patient set up and enhances reliability and flexibility of the device.” Also new at RSNA, Resonance Technology will introduce to its family of VisuaStim fMRI products a jumbo high-definition heads-up fMRI display with two built-in 1000 Hz eye-trackers for precise vision monitoring. The display delivers 1280 x 1020 dpi crystal clear, large-scale images with a low signal-to-noise ratio. The device is compatible with the new Siemens 32-channel brain imaging coil. “This is the only display to date that can be adapted to fit in the new 32-channel coil,” says Ziarati. “Resonance Technology is proud to maintain its position as an industry leader with these new product innovations at RSNA 2009.” About Resonance Technology Company, Inc. For over 21 years, Resonance Technology Company, Inc. has been the recognized leader in cutting-edge MRI-compatible audio-video systems. The company was founded in 1988 by Mokhtar Ziarati, an electrical engineer specializing in CT and MRI, with the goal of eliminating the claustrophobia and discomfort patients often experience during MRI procedures. At the same time, the company was focused on helping leading clinicians make the most of their cutting-edge MRI technology. In 1990, with its ground-breaking MRI television, Resonance Technology was among the first to overcome the challenges of developing a color television technology compatible with powerful magnetic MRI fields. Resonance Technology holds a full range of patents for its product line and continues to expand functionality and features every year. Today, its advanced CinemaVision system is the world’s most popular MRI video entertainment product for patient comfort. With a full line of MRI-compatible devices, Resonance Technology is also a leader in the design and manufacture of visual, auditory and patient-response devices for functional brain mapping applications. These complement its growing line of clinical virtual reality audio-video and audio-only devices. Today, Resonance Technology remains dedicated to the design, manufacture and support of state-of-the-art products that help MRI reach its full potential in both clinical and research settings, while offering the highest return on investment.
