Product 8) Signa 3.0T Infinity with EXCITE (K030874 GE 3.0T Signa Infinity TwinSpeed with EXCITE MR System) Signa 3.0T with EXCITE (K030874 GE 3.0T Signa Infinity TwinSpeed with EXCITE MR System) The GE Signa@ Infinity line of products are whole body magnetic resonance scanners designed to support high resolution, high signal-to-noise ratio and short scan times. The Signa@ Infinity System is indicated for use as a diagnostic imaging device to produce transverse, sagittal, coronal and oblique images, spectroscopic images, and/or spectra, dynamic images of the internal structures and organs 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. The images produced by the Signa@ Infinity systems reflect the spatial distribution of protons (hydrogen nuclei) exhibiting magnetic resonance. These images and/or spectra when interpreted by a trained physician yield information that may assist in diagnosis.
