Optima™ MR450w - 70cm

The Optima™ MR450w system delivers productivity with uncompromised magnet technology.

It is wide-bore done right.

Thanks to cutting-edge technologies, we've advanced the capabilities of wide-bore MR by delivering both uncompromised image quality and high productivity - all with an expansive 50 cm field of view.

But it's about more than the bore. Built on a fully redesigned MR platform, the Optima™ MR450w offers a range of advanced new functionality, making it a workhorse system for practices of all sizes and specialties.

It is also extremely accessible. Its cost and capabilities make it a great choice for first-time MR customers who can make it their only scanner, as well as established MR users seeking a versatile, hard-working system. Its 1.5T field strength is the industry's best-known and most-used. And its bore diameter and field of view make MR scans accessible to more patients who need them.

The Optima™ MR450w is the right MR system in so many ways.

The Right Capabilities

Advanced functionality gives clinicians the tools they need to make definitive diagnoses - and help grow practices.

The Right Experience

Exclusive ease-of-use features help make life easier for both patients and technologists.

The Right Investment

Administrators can drive new levels of productivity, scanning a broader patient population on a more predictable schedule.


The Optima MR450w delivers patient comfort without compromising quality or capabilities.

It combines the benefits of a 70cm patient bore with a highly homogenous superconducting magnet and a comprehensive suite of GE software applications.

Built on an uncompromised MR platform, the MR450w offers:

  • OpTix digital RF system – signal digitization in the magnet room to help improve SNR.
  • 50cm usable FOV – accommodate larger patients.
  • High fidelity gradients – optimized control of gradient performance to generate outstanding performance in demanding applications such as fMRI, cardiac, diffusion, and FIESTA.
  • Acoustic Reduction Technology (ART) – reduce acoustic noise for brain, spine, and MSK exams without compromising image quality.
