MRI for everyone,
More than 2/3 of the world has no access to medical imaging. Our mission is to make MRI available globally, through our ultra-low field mobile device.
Because it is light and compact, MGNTQ™ moves to the patient instead of the patient having to move to the MRI scanner. This opens up new opportunities to provide care in and outside a hospital setting.
In a hospital, MGNTQ™ can be moved to the patient’s bedside in intensive care, emergency, or intra-operative care.
Outside a hospital, it can be loaded onto a van, serve rural areas or medical deserts in developed and developing countries, facilitate home care, serve retirement homes, support sporting events and be used for education.
MGNTQ™ is designed for easy deployment. It is affordable,
requires no specialized infrastructure and little maintenance.
5-10x more affordable than a conventional MRI scanner. The subscription-based model (post-regulatory approval) will facilitate deployment globally. Furthermore, the device requires no cooling, no other special infrastructure and can fit inside a small office. It consumes less power than a light bulb and is powered through a regular wall outlet.
We have designed MGNTQ™ with patient comfort in mind.
No acoustic noise and safe for both patient and operator.
The device has extremely low acoustic levels making it suitable for infants, neonates and those sensitive to conventional MRI loud noise. The device does not require the entire body to enter in a long tunnel making it ideal for claustrophobic patients. No magnetic shielding is required, and the 5 Gauss fringe field is within 40cm from the magnet.
The A*Midex Foundation of Aix-Marseille University and Multiwave have signed a 4-year industrial Chair for medical imaging. The joint-research project will run from 2024-2027. Under the partnership, Aix-Marseille University will purchase 5 portable MRI scanners.
In 2021, Multiwave concluded a worldwide exclusive license of ultra-low field MRI technology from LUMC.
University of Sussex (Brighton & Sussex Medical School) signed a master research agreement with Multiwave in 2022 to acquire Multiwave’s portable MRI device to conduct research and development purposes on ultra-low field MRI.
A leading MRI original equipment manufacturer has concluded a non-exclusive collaboration agreement with Multiwave in 2023 to conduct a feasibility study on the potential to adapt Multiwave’s device for novel clinical applications.
Mount Sinai Hospital New York has concluded a partnership agreement with Multiwave in July 2022 to purchase a portable MRI scanner and conduct research on ultra-low field MRI.
