For radiology departments and practices, the special multi-use concept for the disposables used in ulrich medical’s new range of MRI contrast injectors means a much simpler workflow, since after the initial set-up, the systems are ready to go for the rest of the day. The preparation is extremely simple. All that is needed is to insert the Easy-Click-Cassette, close the cover, connect the patient line, connect the media container, and the system is ready for the first injection. The Easy-Click-Cassette remains in the injector for 24 hours and according to the multi-use concept is ready for as many injections desired. The contrast medium is injected from the original media containers, which means that multiple patients can be treated in succession without changing the container. When it comes to the scan acquisition, the user has to perform only a few simple steps – everything else is taken care of automatically by the injector. Between patients, all that needs to be changed is the patient-specific tubing, which takes just a few seconds. The multi-use concept has been shown to be extremely successful and is helping users worldwide cope with ever-increasing patient numbers.
There are two device versions available. The Max 2M is a cost-effective solution for lower patient volumes and is particularly suitable for first time automated contrast injector users. For larger patient volumes the Max 3 is recommended. This version features three media connection points (one NaCl and two contrast media). These enable the user to work with different contrast media and select the appropriate medium for each patient. Alternatively, if the same medium is placed in both connection points, the injector automatically switches from the empty bottle to the second, full bottle. This ensures there are no interruptions during a examination and minimizes leftover contrast medium.
