Product Classification System, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Imaging - Product Code LNH
Product GE Healthcare, Discovery MR450 Product Usage: The Discovery MR450w is a whole body magnetic resonance scanner designed to support high resolution and high signal-to-noise ratio images in short exam times. It is indicated for use as a diagnostic imaging device to produce axial, sagittal, coronal, and oblique anatomical images, spectroscopic images, parametric maps, and/or spectra, dynamic images of the structures and/ or functions of the entire body including, but not limited to, head, neck, TMJ, spine, breast, heart, abdomen, pelvis, joints, prostate, blood vessels, and musculoskeletal regions of the body. Depending on the region of interest being imaged, contrast agents may be used. The images produced by the Discovery MR450w reflect the spatial distribution or molecular environment of nuclei exhibiting magnetic resonance. These images and spectra, when interpreted by a trained physician yield information that may assist in diagnosis.
