Orbit 4-Channel Coil

Using the dedicated Orbit 4-Channel Coil from NORAS the medical personnel can access detailed information and high-resolution images regarding the state of the orbital cavities, the eyeballs and the accessory visual structures. With repeated MR imaging the success of an intervention or of a treatment can be monitored directly.

Additional application areas for the NORAS Orbit 4-Channel Coil are:

  • Diagnosis of structural changes of the eyes and of the orbital cavities
  • Estimation of the physical dimensions of visual structures, such as the thickness of extra-ocular muscles
  • Detection of inflammatory swellings in the orbital cavities
  • Revealing of smallest injuries in the orbit area
  • Detection of inflammations of the optic nerve, especially when there is no visible degradation in the optic nerve close to the eyeball
  • Diagnosis of inflammations and tumorous tissue

Advantages of the Orbit 4-Channel Coil in MR-Diagnostics

The optimized design of the coil allows for:

  • High signal quality based on small-sized array elements with direct fitting of the element position to the special anatomy of the orbital area
  • High-resolution examination of the entire visual anatomy
  • Reduced scan times with higher image quality as compared to standard coils, which is especially useful for examination of children
  • High level of comfort during examination due to special openings for the patient’s nose and eyes
