Imaging is to be seen, not heard.
Advanced noise reduction technologies are present on all MAGNETOM® scanners. Nevertheless, we have continuously strived to develop technologies that will further lower noise without compromising imaging efficiency and quality. With Quiet Suite, we have addressed the root source – sharp gradient switches – to take noise reduction to a new level. Quiet Suite includes QuietX sequences and the inaudible PETRA as well as optimized protocols for neurological and orthopedic examinations. Our latest innovation – QuietX Diffusion1 – adds diffusion imaging to our quiet portfolio. Experience a broad range of benefits:
- Complete, quiet examinations for neurology and orthopedics
- Minimum of 70% and up to 99% reduction in sound pressure2
- No compromises in image quality
“The most common complaint we hear from our patients when having an MRI is the loudness of the acquisition techniques. Siemens Quiet Suite is an essential innovation in improving patient experience and outcomes by significantly reducing acoustic noise during complete MR exams.” 3

Decibel measurements and images acquired on MAGNETOM Aera, November 2014. Data on file. Results may vary.
The statements by Siemens' customers described herein are based on results that were achieved in the customer's unique setting. Since there is no "typical" hospital and many variables exist (e.g., hospital size, case mix, level of IT adoption) there can be no guarantee that other customers will achieve the same results.
