Fujifilm launches new Velocity MRI system

Fujifilm launched their Velocity MRI system – and advanced, high-field open MRI system at RSNA 2021. The Velocity MRI system is designed to streamline workflow and enhance the patient experience with its unique open gantry, integrated radiofrequency (RF) coils and reconstruction technologies. The system’s anatomy-conformable Synergy Flex coil is the first of its kind for an open, vertical field MRI scanner, promoting fast abdominal and orthopaedic imaging.

“Velocity defines what today’s true Open MRI is about – the unique patient comfort and accommodation benefits of opensided MRI now joined by the workflow and image quality benefits of integrated RF coils and enhanced reconstruction technologies,” said Shawn Etheridge, Director, CT and MRI Marketing for Fujifilm Healthcare Americas Corporation.

The scanner’s unique, open gantry creates a spacious feeling for claustrophobic, bariatric, geriatric and paediatric patients. Additionally, the Velocity’s open-sided gantry provides easy patient access for real-time interventional procedures. The Velocity’s extra-wide patient table can accommodate patients up to 660 pounds (300 kg), and offers in-gantry left and right movement with multiple coil connectors for easy patient positioning.
