Helium refills are a thing of the past with the MRI technology offered by Innovative MRI Partners. MgB2 (Magnesium Diboride) is the cryogen-free technology that powers the superconductive magnet of our Open MRI. This technology allows medical technology — notably our MRI scanners — to operate with no need for helium. Naturally, the result is operation with a lower running cost, lower total cost of ownership, simpler operation, and the added benefit of environmental responsibility.
The MRI technology used by Innovative MRI Partners is TRULY OPEN. The innovative U-Shape makes this device a full "Open Sky" MRI, which is unparalleled for patient comfort and diagnostic reliability. Traditional C-Shaped magnets enclose the patient in a supine position, enhancing feelings of claustrophobia and missing important pathologies.
