One of the superior machines from the MRI imaging line created by United Imaging Healthcare Co., the uMR560 has combined cutting edge design with high quality core components. The makers have used 16 independent receiving channels that perfectly match with the 16 RF coil channels for reducing data loss during transmission to zero. The FAST technology enables accelerated parallel acquisition. This imaging device is capable of fast imaging and fast suppression due to the integration of 50 cm imaging field-of-view. Its high density coil produces high quality MR imaging. Another innovative technology used for making it is the SlideIN technology for head and neck combination coil.

The EVA material of the coil weighs just about 0.4 kg. The shoulder coil is adjustable to different shoulder sizes for making orthopedic imaging possible. The monitoring window lets professionals adjust the imaging parameters. The user interface switches quickly between Chinese and English for seamlessly adapting to user preferences. Full load stress testing has been done to ensure that the machine operates continuously at full work load. Streamline patient table and unibody aluminum control panel has added an aesthetic brilliance to this human oriented design.
