Medrad displayed its new 3.0T Prostate eCoil MR Endorectal Coil (eCoil) compatible with 3-Tesla field strength MR systems manufactured by Philips Healthcare and Siemens Medical Solutions at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) conference last month.
The 3.0T Prostate eCoil conforms to the size and shape of the prostate for consistent contact between the gland and the signal-amplifying elements of the coil. The result is a small field-of-view (FOV) and high spatial resolution, sensitivity, and specificity that yields clearer pictures of the prostate.
These images provide information needed by clinicians to diagnose and stage cancer, and also to plan and deliver targeted treatment, such as radiation therapy, Medrad said.
The Prostate eCoil is also available for 1.5-Tesla environments and is one of the firm’s Leading Image MR Coil products.
