It appears in Russia for many years, there is the production of these complex devices. Research and production firm "Az" produces several models
Research and production firm "Az" organized in 1988 as an innovative company in the development and production of domestic magnetic resonance imaging. Human resource base of the company amounted to scientific, engineering and technical personnel and skilled workers leading companies and research institutes.
Permanent head of research and production firm "Az" is the Archangel Vyacheslav A. — Member of the Russian Academy of Electrical Sciences, was awarded state awards, including the Order of the Badge of Honor.
NPF "Az" provides a full range of activities related to the exploitation of high-quality MR imaging, it is — the development, mass production, installation and commissioning of equipment, warranty and subsequent service of magnetic resonance imaging, as well as training of technical and medical staff specially developed programs.
The first domestic MR scanner "Image 1" was set in 1991 in one of the largest medical institutions in Russia — Mental Health Research Center of Medical Sciences, where he successfully operated.
During his time in various medical institutions in Russia and abroad received about 100 MRI scanners.
On the production, sale and maintenance of manufactured NPF "Az" MR scanners have licenses and certificates of Conformity Russia. Introduced a system of production quality standards ISO 9001-2008 and ISO 13485-2004.
During 1997-2000, the military and medical institutions of the Main Military Medical Directorate of the Ministry of Defence conducted medical tests of magnetic resonance scanners "Ellipse" and "diamagnetic." Scanners are recommended to equip the district military hospitals and clinics under the Central Government. In 2007-2009. in a number of hospitals in the Defense Ministry delivered MR scanners "Ellipse" and "Az-300."
In 2005, the company registered the MR scanner "Az-300" (0.31 T), and in 2010 — a new device for permanent magnet 0.38 Tesla.
NPF "Az" refers to organizations authorized by the Ministry of Health to conduct the acceptance of technical test of MR imaging in the territory of Russia.
In 1996, on the basis of NPF "Az" new medical diagnostic center, which in 2001 registered as a "Center of MRI-O", where every day is seeing patients. Since 2007, we started accepting children from the age of 5. Now the center has 3 imager our production, all devices superotkrytogo type of series "Az". In 2008, the diagnostic center is open Bronnitsi, admission to which is using the "Az-300." March 3, 2010 opened a diagnostic center "in Tuchkovo Tomography." This center is equipped with a magnetic resonance imaging "Ellipse" and "Az-300."
The center co-researchers with medical professionals are upgrading units and CT scanners programs, conduct testing of software designed scanners, as well as the development and compilation of survey techniques, and the creation of manuals on MR imaging. Currently released atlases "Magnetic resonance imaging of the brain," "Magnetic resonance diagnosis Knee Injuries", "Magnetic resonance diagnosis of shoulder joint" and "Magnetic resonance imaging in Urology", it allows you to raise the level of application of magnetic resonance diagnostics.
Medical experts of the center together with leading experts in diagnostic imaging medical institutions of Moscow (Institute of Urology, City Hospital. Botkin and others) conduct diagnostic studies to expand the scope of the studied organs and systems.
