RF Coils
180mm RF Coil: The 180mm diameter coil is used for
routine lower extremity imaging of the foot, ankle, leg and
160mm RF Coil: The 160mm diameter coil is a
specialty coil that offers up to a 40% increase in SNR
(signal-noise ratio) for imaging medium- to small-sized knees
and feet and larger-sized elbows and hands.
145mm RF Coil (Optional): The 145mm RF coil is primarily
used for imaging feet and ankles, as well as elbows.
For smaller patients, it can also be used for knee imaging.
123mm RF Coil: The 123mm diameter coil is used for
routine upper extremity imaging of the hand, wrist, forearm
and elbow, and for high-resolution imaging of small feet,
ankles and knees.
100mm RF Coil (Optional): The 100mm RF coil is
used for routine upper extremity imaging of hands and
wrists. It can also be used for imaging elbows on smaller
80mm RF Coil (Optional): The 80mm RF coil is used
for routine imaging of the hands and wrists.
Type: All removable quadrature volume transmit and
receive coils.
Patient Access: All coils are cylindrical in design with
either 180mm, 160mm, 145mm, 123mm, 100mm or 80mm
diameter in the center, flared to 200mm at the patient
