Traditional MR head coils do nothing to put patients at ease when undergoing an MRI procedure, but also make it harder for technicians and radiologist. The Flip-Top Head Coil is a revolutionary design that significantly improves workflow, usability, and aesthetics. It can be used one-handed and enables a single step set-up/release for scan. By replacing hard plastics with soft EVA foam, the coil top is 70% lighter so is much easier to use. The flexible material also allows for easier adjustment to get coils closer to body for higher an image quality.
