MR Theater*

In-bore visuals enhance patient comfort, thereby helping to put your patients at ease.

Patients undergoing MR exams will find a relaxing environment with Canon Medical Systems' new MR Theater. Creating an immersive virtual experience for patients, the new MR Theater gives patients a visual focal point to distract them from the exam, encouraging them to relax and stay still, enabling clinicians to produce efficient, high-quality imaging.

Clinical Applications

Quick neuro exams.


The Galan 3T with PURERF and Saturn technologies is designed to increase signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) by up to 20%, allowing for, faster sampling and higher resolution images; combined with the ability to automatically stack protocol sequences with NeuroLine+ results in quick neuro exams.


Time Resolved Non Contrast MRA.


Multiple scans with different TIs can now be combined into a shorter, single acquisition.



Quiet distortion-free diffusion.


  • Less distortion on FASE DWI compared with the ones by SS-EPI
  • Acoustic noise level is lower with FASE silent DWI than with EPI for DWI

Extend the range of imaging to tissues traditionally very difficult for MRI.

Ultrashort TE (UTE)*

Ultra short echo times allow for imaging of tissues with very short relaxation times.

Contrast in your images. Not in your patients.

Non-Contrast Imaging

An increasing awareness of the potential risks associated with gadolinium-based contrast agents has revealed the need for alternative, contrast-free MRA techniques. We provide clinicians four generations of unique, non-contrast MRA sequences that minimize risk to patients while producing exceptional images. These images are often better than those acquired with conventional contrast enhanced techniques.

Non-contrast MRA techniques

Non-Contrast Imaging

Phase Sensitive Inversion Recovery (PSIR)*

PSIR in the heart provides improved contrast in late-enhanced imaging by using a more robust nulling of healthy myocardial signal without the need for an inversion time (TI) calibration scan. By eliminating the need for calibration, cardiac examinations can be completed with fewer breath holds and greater patient comfort.

The images of PSIR are from Heart Institute (Instituto do Coração), University of Sao Paulo Medical School, Brazil.

MOdified Look-Locker Inversion recovery (MOLLI)¹

Expand your cardiac toolset with T1 mapping, allowing you to acquire a much more quantitative characterization of myocardial tissue.² Canon Medical Systems' T1 mapping utilizes a MOLLI sequence, enabling the acquisition of a full T1 map within a single breath hold.

The images of MOLLI are from Heart Institute (Instituto do Coração), University of Sao Paulo Medical School, Brazil.
