Experience freedom with AIR Technology
Form fitting for every form
Freedom in coil positioning and handling is the ultimate goal of any coil design. The weight of coil technology is half of this design challenge. The other is flexibility. AIR Technology has an industry-leading flexible design. From young patients to professional athletes, it comfortably conforms to the size and shape of every patient. Not only does this improve the scan experience, it has the added benefit of improving signal quality by bringing the elements closer to the patient.
Industry-leading flexible design
A revolution starts with a single loop
To design a lighter coil that conforms to the shape of individual human anatomies, we had to start with the underlying coil technology. Each AIR Technology coil element is comprised of two basic components. The Inca conductor and E-mode module. Two powerful pieces of technology designed to improve SNR regardless of condition, giving us the flexibility to create coil geometries without compromising image quality. Together, they combine what was seven different components into two. This simplified design is the basis for a revolutionary coil design that is 60 percent lighter, offers more flexibility and has the largest area of coverage.

Channel after channel of industry-leading coverage
Because AIR Technology is more flexible than the traditional electromechanical design, elements can overlap one another while maintaining signal performance. The result, a coil suite with the industry’s highest density coverage for whole body, multi-station imaging with more than 140 total channels. This ultra-high channel density improves parallel imaging acceleration and signal penetration at the same time. Patients and technologists benefit from a lightweight, flexible design and radiologists get the extra channels they need for outstanding image quality. In the end, everybody wins with AIR Technology.

48 Channel Head Coil and Coil Suite
The optional 48 Channel Head Coil delivers phenomenal performance for every patient. Its fit-adaptable design addresses 99.99 percent of the patient population while preserving high SNR. It also maximizes the clinical capabilities of advanced imaging applications such as HyperWorks technologies and is compatible with both EEG and fMRI simultaneously.
