Benefit from fast protocols and quieter exams for uncooperative patients. Accommodate a wide variety of patients while benefiting from a superb SNR. Your MAGNETOM Aera's Neuro Suite includes advanced protocols for diffusion imaging, perfusion imaging, and fMRI. The Brain Dot Engine helps increase consistency, also when conditions change during the course of the examination.
The standard Ortho Suite comes with a comprehensive collection of protocols for joint imaging, including the spine. Tim 4G’s ultra high-density coils for MSK imaging improve SNR and anatomic coverage. DotGO’s customizable workflows feature AutoAlign and AutoCoverage for knee, hip, and shoulder and MPR planning for fast 3D measurements and Inline 3D multiplanar reformatting. WARP1 offers a comprehensive suite of techniques including Advanced WARP1, which provides susceptibility artifact reduction functionality (such as needed for MR conditional metal implants).
Profit from new certainty in Body MRI: FREEZEit helps you overcome motion and incorrect timing to open up new diagnostic possibilities. With the Abdomen Dot Engine, standardized, efficient, and comprehensive workflows for the upper abdomen with excellent image quality are provided. With LiverLab you can perform quantitative liver evaluation, non-invasively, on the fly. Additionally, ultra-fast, high-resolution, 2D and 3D protocols are provided for abdomen, pelvis, MR Colonography, MRCP, dynamic kidney, and MR Urography applications.
The Cardiac Suite covers comprehensive 2D routine cardiac applications, ranging from morphology and ventricular function to tissue characterization. MyoMaps provides an additional layer of valuable diagnostic information about even subtle changes in tissue composition – on the fly. DotGO’s on-board guidance helps make cardiac part of your clinical routine. The Cardiac Dot Engine simplifies complete cardiac localization with AutoAlign Heart.
With the Angio Suite, excellent MR Angiography can be performed to visualize arteries and veins with or without contrast agent. For scans with contrast media, the Angio Dot Engine helps realize optimized bolus timing at every examination. Real-time graphics and AutoVoice Commands assist the user in organizing the ideal timing of breathing, scanning, and contrast media.
From clinical imaging to biopsy guidance, you can count on a wide selection of breast coils and outstanding image quality. Additionally, MAGNETOM Aera's 70 cm open bore makes it possible to comfortably accommodate more patients. Excellent soft tissue differentiation, customized protocols (e.g. with fat saturation or water excitation or silicone excitation), as well as flexible multiplanar visualization allow for fast, simple, and reproducible evaluation of MRI breast examinations. The Breast Dot Engine offers different workflows for optimized image quality and consistency.
Prostate MRI utilizes high-channel surface coils, offering a non-invasive and highly accurate technique for the early detection of prostate cancer. Our top-of-the-line solution, the Body 60 coil, can be used to reduce scan times helping to improve your institutions´ process efficiency.
With MAGNETOM Aera you benefit from a comprehensive solution portfolio for certainty in prostate cancer assessment, ranging from coils, scan applications, reading and reporting software, to therapy monitoring tools.
Tissue relaxation times in pediatrics2 are very different compared to those of adults. The reasons for these differences are: developing tissues, body size, faster heart rates, and compliance with breathhold commands. With MAGNETOM Aera, protocols are available to be adapted for imaging infants.
MAGNETOM Aera’s Onco Suite features a collection of sequences, protocols, and evaluation tools that guide users through the detailed assessment of a variety of oncological conditions. Acquire whole body coverage for metastasis staging in a single, continuous move with the TimCT Onco Dot Engine. Together with Dot’s on-board guidance, this innovative technology improves patient throughput and provides superb image quality.
The MRI restrictions (if any) of the metal implant must be considered prior to patient undergoing MRI exam. MR imaging of patients with metallic implants brings specific risks. However, certain implants are approved by the governing regulatory bodies to be MR conditionally safe. For such implants, the previously mentioned warning may not be applicable. Please contact the implant manufacturer for the specific conditional information. The conditions for MR safety are the responsibility of the implant manufacturer, not of Siemens.
MR scanning has not been established as safe for imaging fetuses and infants under two years of age. The responsible physician has to decide about the benefit of the MRI examination in comparison to other imaging procedures.
