Multiwave introduces a groundbreaking development in medical imaging with the world’s lightest portable MRI Scanner. Recognizing that 90% of the world population lacks access to MRI due to cost and specialized infrastructure requirements, Multiwave aims to make medical imaging more affordable and accessible. This AI-powered, ultra-portable MRI scanner is 30 times lighter and 10 times more affordable than conventional scanners. It delivers diagnostically relevant images of the brain for adults and children, encompassing conditions such as stroke, oncology, and hydrocephalus. Operating on a standard power outlet or battery power, the scanner eliminates the need for liquid helium and consumes 10 times less energy. The dedicated app accompanying the device enables diagnosis via tele-radiology.
The impact of Multiwave's innovation is multi-faceted, ranging from improved access to MRI in developing countries and reduced healthcare costs through early diagnosis to easy installation and maintenance. The device proves valuable for bedside diagnosis and emergency settings, including its potential use inside ambulances for early stroke diagnosis (currently under development). This technology serves remote locations and underserved populations, addressing the limited access to radiology services through tele-radiology.
