November 15, 2019 0 By FM

Qfix has received FDA 510(k) clearance for the Encompass 15-channel head coil, a diagnostic imaging device for use with the Encompass MR SRS immobilization device.

The Encompass 15-channel head coil provides diagnostic quality images for select Siemens 3T MRI scanners.

The 15-channel coil allows the user to locate the coil elements close to the patient’s anatomy. Optimal signal to noise ratio can be obtained across the entire cranium while accommodating the high precision positioning unique to the Encompass device.

The Encompass MR SRS immobilization system is part of the Qfix MRimage and Treat line of devices, which enables patients to benefit from MR, CT, and treatment on the same device.

MR images obtained with the Encompass MR SRS immobilization system can be used for SRS treatment planning, including MR Only and MR Fusion techniques.
