MRI Technology becomes Helium-free


The magnet of Paramed’s MROpen MRI scanner is based on the Green Technology of Helium free superconducting wire.


Cryogen free represents the new frontier in MRI technology: Superconductive power with no need for helium.


MROpen is the first commercial MRI system in the world based on MgB2 innovative material.





Helium free operation brings significant benefits to both people and the environment:


- simplicity

- lower running cost and TCO (Total Cost of Ownership)

- green Technology



MgB2 inside


Leading-edge material science applied to superconductive magnet technology: this is MgB2 (Magnesium Diboride), the cryogen-free technology that powers MROpen’s superconductive magnet.






The result of a collaboration between top level academic and industrial groups from Italy, Japan and the USA, the MgB2 superconducting wire produced by Columbus Superconductors is an absolute breakthrough technology, patented internationally, that allows to bring MgB2 based cryogen-free operation to the world of Medical Imaging and MRI.
