At KinetiCor, our vision is simple:
Make your MR images
Advanced Motion Correction
Our advanced motion correction technology enables remarkably accurate scans, with correction for motion as slight as normal breathing.
The Kineticor Difference
Achieve the highest quality diagnostic imagery with every MR scan.
Optimize clinical operations by minimizing call backs, repeat scans and the need for sedation.
“From the very beginning of the project back in 2003 we have believed that the prospective motion correction will revolutionize MRI, especially in non-cooperative subjects and patients. It’s been a long way though, until the tracking technology and the MRI methodology has matured to the present point when we were able to demonstrate its real benefits for the image quality. Interestingly, the prospective motion correction has in a way outperformed our expectations, as it not only effectively suppresses the artifacts for the cases with strong motion, but also improves high-resolution acquisitions when no apparent motion is present.””Maxim Zaitsev, Ph.D.Department of Radiology, University Medical Centre Freiburg
“Prospective motion correction systems will have a profound impact on the quality and costs of clinical and research MR imaging. Significant savings will be realized by reducing the need to repeat scans and the need to sedate patients to reduce motion during scanning. This system is an extraordinary integration of real-time control of imaging sequences with a novel method for measuring motion. The system has demonstrated remarkable results that are likely to continue to improve with ongoing development.””Thomas Prieto, Ph.D.Associate Professor of Neurology, Medical College of Wisconsin
“I consider prospective motion correction technology a major break-through in MRI for clinical and academic applications. In diagnostic imaging it will reduce the number of repeat exams or non-diagnostic results, thus allowing better diagnosis and reducing healthcare costs. In addition, technical advances in MRI lead to ever increasing resolution of MRI images, demanding patients to hold extremely still. The full potential of high resolution imaging will only be unleashed with motion correction technology.””Oliver Speck, Ph.D.Director, Department of Biomedical Magnetic Resonance, Otto-von-Guericke University
