Magnetic Resonance Therapy (MRT) could answer healthcare cost challenge
This article was originally published in Clinica
GE Medical Systems has developed a diagnostic/therapeutic MR system which promises to improve patient care while contributing to reduced overall healthcare costs. The Magnetic Resonance Therapy (MRT) 0.5T scanner provides simultaneous diagnosis and treatment capabilities by virtue of its magnet construction - the key factor to its open design. The system uses superconducting technology, obviating the need for liquid helium. Surgeons have access to the patient enabling minimally invasive therapy to be performed.
