Overview

Optima MR360 1.5T

The Optima MR360 is engineered to deliver value. Built around a proven, highly homogeneous 1.5T magnet, 33/100 gradient performance and new OpTix RF technology, the unit combines clear image quality and versatility with the ongoing benefits of our ecomagination program. Offering flexibility with two table designs, the unit also facilitates diagnostic capabilities with user-friendly features. A broad range of advanced software applications offer you high-quality imaging—even in challenging areas such as breast, body, and vascular applications. The MR360 is energy efficient, too, using up to 34 percent less power than previous-generation systems.
