Kopp Development - Booth 520
Kopp Development Inc., the leading manufacturer of ferromagnetic detectors for MRI Safety is the ONLY supplier of the ferromagnetic incident log manager, FerrAlert™ F.I.L.M. The F.I.L.M. device is able to provide an automatic visual trace of the unintended ferrous events at the magnet room door. The logging of these events entering the MRI room is now required by The Joint Commission. The features of this device are very useful for TJC compliance as well as internal Root Cause Analysis. Our new software makes it even easier to create these logging reports for TJC’s inspections. FerrAlert™ detectors are recognized to be the most accurate ferromagnetic detection systems for MRI, due to their unique, patented technology to detect and precisely locate offending ferrous objects.

Sofia 3D Breast Ultrasound
Sofia 3D Breast Ultrasound Hitachi Healthcare Americas
Hitachi Healthcare Americas - Booth 400
SOFIA solves the economic and logistic challenges associated with whole-breast ultrasound by using a full-field radial scanning method. The resulting throughput, efficiency, and patient comfort make SOFIA the ideal solution for women with dense breasts. SOFIA scans an entire breast in a single 30-second radial sweep. SOFIA does not require a dedicated room allowing you to use SOFIA for a wide variety of diagnostic ultrasound exams in addition to whole-breast imaging. Unlike other systems, it requires no additional consumables and no time-consuming pre-scan preparation. Designed to reduce patient anxiety by providing the most comfortable and private exam possible, exams are done in the prone position, allowing the patient to rest comfortably and remain completely covered during the short scan.
