Edison Imaging Associates has upgraded our comprehensive Breast MR program.
This upgrade included the addition of The Sentinelle Vanguard Breast MRI table. The Sentinelle Vanguard table leverages a throughput enhancing patient stretcher together with an innovative patient support design and a unique Variable Coil Geometryâ„¢, to transform our MRI system into a dedicated system for breast MR imaging and intervention. With features not available in traditional breast MRI coils, this next-generation system optimizes imaging and access, patient care and comfort, and practice efficiency.

High quality imaging
The unique Variable Coil Geometry allows imaging coils to be customized for each breast of every patient, improving signal-to-noise ratio over fixed coils. This results in the ability to resolve detail in morphology which can lead to better breast cancer management and treatment options.

Patient care and comfort
The patient-centric patient support features state-of-the-art ergonomics to comfortably accommodate patients with arms at side and arms over the head positioning. Patient comfort can greatly reduce image artifacts due to patient movement, resulting in improved image quality.
Padding is made of visco-elastic foam for improved comfort, especially in common pressure areas such as the diaphragm and sternum. All padding is adjustable, allowing customized cushioning for every patient, and the foam is covered in surgical grade material allowing for easy clean-up.

Full access
The open design of the Vanguard patient support allows maximum access to the breast for ease of positioning and intervention, while coils can be adjusted for different sized breasts and different areas for intervention. The coils can easily be moved medially and laterally, permitting optimal access for targeting in all quadrants of the breast.
