Product Classification System, nuclear magnetic resonance imaging - Product Code LNH
Product GE Healthcare, Optima MR450w 1.5T MR systems
The GE Signa¿ MR750 System is a whole body magnetic resonance scanner designed to support high resolution, high signal-to-noise ratio, and short scan times. The GE Signa¿ MR750 System is indicated for use as a diagnostic imaging device to produce axial, sagittal, coronal, and oblique images, spectroscopic images, parametric maps, and/or spectra, dynamic images of the structures and organs of the entire body, including, but not limited to, head, neck, TMVJ, spine, breast, heart, abdomen, pelvis, joints, prostate, blood vessels, and musculoskeletal regions of the body. The images produced by the GE Signa¿ MR750 System reflect the spatial distribution or molecular environment of nuclei exhibiting magnetic resonance. These images when interpreted by a trained physician yield information that may assist in diagnosis. The indications for use for the 3.0T GE Signa¿ MR750 System are similar to those for the Signa¿ HDx Magnetic Resonance System and the Siemens MAGNETOM Verio MR System.
