AIRIS™ Vento™ MRI scanner

Advanced Permanent Open MRI scanner

Where patient comfort and total cost of ownership combine.

The AIRIS Vento Open MRI scanner is an affordable system with an open, two-pillar design that welcomes patients of all shapes, sizes and conditions. Fast and reliable scans deliver quality images you can trust. It features a permanent magnet that needs only limited initial investment and no additional equipment such as a dedicated cooling device. It’s extremely energy efficient, running strong throughout its lifetime: all of which makes this solution an attractive alternative to superconductive MRI.

  • Open design for claustrophobic, bariatric, geriatric and paediatric patients – or interventional scans.
  • Flexible patient table for easy positioning of the scan region to the centre of the magnetic field.
  • Strong imaging features with outstanding image quality.
  • Permanent 0.3T magnet with low installation and running costs.

The AIRIS Vento MRI scanner is your solution for high-standard outpatient centres, whether used as a complementary or standalone system. So why not put patient comfort at the heart of your exams - while maintaining cost control with a quick return on investment.

Low total cost of ownership for a fast return on investment

If you’re looking for a durable, space-and-cost efficient MRI system, the AIRIS Vento MRI scanner with its permanent magnet is for you.  

  • Permanent magnet barely loses performance during its lifetime requiring minimum extra care.
  • No cooling system and no equipment room necessary.
  • Small footprint with only three units: the gantry, the console and the power station. 
  • Green system with a maximum 5kW power consumption for low running costs.
  • Low TOC with excellent and quick return on investment.
The open design of the AIRIS Vento MRI scanner delivers a 280° view for you – and a spacious and relaxed experience for your patients.
  • Open architecture with a two-pillar design for patient access from all sides.
  • Flexible patient table with in-gantry movement to left and right for positioning extremities like shoulder or knee in the centre of the magnetic field.
  • Quiet scans without the need of earplugs.
  • Scan non-contrast MRA images of complex vascular systems without injecting any contrast agents with VASC-ASL.

The AIRIS Vento MRI scanner helps you work productively with many easy-to-use and automated functions that deliver consistent results with higher patient throughput – so your patients spend as little time in the scanner as possible.

  • Parameter suggestions during set-up.
  • Automatic slice positioning with AutoPose.
  • Customise routine protocols (even during the scan) to fit your patient and clinical needs.
  • Reconstruct multiple cross-sections of complex structures from 3D imaging sequences with Curved MPR and Radial MPR.
  • Remote application support to help optimise protocols, train technicians – and control the entire exam online with SENTINEL™.
  • Remote maintenance support delivers automatic notification of anything suspicious via SENTINEL™ – maximising your uptime.

Diagnostic power for confident results

AIRIS Vento MRI scanner not only offers unique patient comfort, it also delivers high-quality images for a confident diagnosis and treatment decision. In fact, its many sequences allow you to tackle all clinical MRI challenges.

  • Many imaging features for a wide range of clinical applications, such as non-contrast angiography, diffusion or spectral fat suppression.
  • Motion artefact suppression technology RADAR compensates for body movement due to anxiety, breathing, swallowing or heartbeat.
  • Fat suppression acquires clear in-phase and out-phase images simultaneously.
  • High contrast 3D reconstruction from volume data.
  • High order shimming to increase uniformity of static field.

High performance hardware

While you focus on the diagnosis, we’ll take care of the technology. The AIRIS Vento MRI scanner is built on strong, durable and reliable hardware – particularly the permanent magnet, which makes the system very easy to handle.

  • 0.3T permanent MRI scanner with a vertical field and open two-pillars design – with a 210° opening at the front and 70° at the back.
  • Strong gradient with 22mT/m max. strength and 55T/m/s max. slew rate.
  • Fully motorised patient table with 225kg weight limit, 10cm left/right movement in gantry and the ability to lower to 49cm.
  • Highly sensitive solenoid receiver coils – especially effective for orthopaedics.

Clinical Gallery

Brain MRI Scan of acute cerebral infarction. DWI with automatic ADC Map calculation shows affected brain tissue, 3D TOF angiography depicts occlusion of right middle cerebral artery.
Brain MRI angiography scan of left MCA aneurysm. Wide-area MRA imaged with 3D TOF in Volume Rendering (VR).
Non-contrast angiography MRA scan of carotid and aortic arch with VASC-ASL.
Cervical Spine MRI scan of disc herniation on levels C4/5 and C5/6. Oblique orientation of the scan allows better visualisation of nerve roots.
Lumbar Spine MRI scan of cauda equina nerve tumour.
Shoulder MRI scan of old rotator cuff injury. RADAR enables motion-free imaging, and central anatomy positioning supports good image quality.
Knee MRI scan of left joint bone necrosis in detail.
Foot MRI study of fatigue fracture of left 1st, 3rd and 4th metatarsal bones. Imaged with MultiContrast FatSep sequence with PD and T2 contrast.
MRI study of right hip joint lip injury, imaged with T2* radial scan.
Pelvis MRI scan of colon cancer, imaged with diffusion and post-contrast T1 FatSep for consistent fat suppression.
MRCP cholangiography of choledocholithiasis, imaged on breath-hold and RG (Respiratory Gated) studies with sliding MIP post-processing.
