In pursuit of the open design which functions gently for everybody.
The comfort and beauty of Lucent goes beyond the extreme.

MRI has such characteristics as "taking time in imaging" and "weak against examinees' movement". You could also say that the examinees' cooperation is indispensable to obtain good images from the MRI. APERTO Lucent has realized a wide open space thanks to its single-pillar structure, the only one among Hitachi's Open MRI systems. This can provide the examinees with a more comfortable examination environment than the closed-MRI which, in turn, makes it easier to obtain the examinee's cooperation.

Open Design

The offset position of the pillar makes it easier for the light to enter into the gantry center.
Furthermore, a color scheme that would give the examinee a sense of security is adopted in considering the lighting environment inside the examination room.

The footswitch allows the table to move up and down or backward and forward. Freeing hands does not only improve the throughput but also enables meticulous care for the examinees.

Table Height

The table can be lowered to about 450mm allowing young children and elderly patients to get on and off the table with less effort. Vertical movements are also motor driven.

Lateral Slide

Because lateral movement of the table inside the gantry is possible, the body region that is out of the midline (shoulder joints, knee joints, etc.) can be set to the magnet field center.
