MAGNETOM Vida – the first 3T MRI scanner with BioMatrix Technology – embraces human nature and the unique set of challenges that each patient brings to the MRI exam. By embracing these challenges, we overcome patient variability – ushering in a paradigm shift in MRI. The outcome: fewer rescans, predictable scheduling and consistent, high-quality personalized exams for high-end clinical routine as well as clinical research.

 

Eigenschaften & Vorteile


Embrace full 3T performance with unparalleled magnet and gradient power

3T MRI is synonymous with high-performance clinical MRI. With 3T MRI, the expectation is to push and redefine the limits of what is possible in diagnostic imaging.

An all-new 3T magnet

MAGNETOM Vida comes with an all-new 3T magnet, which provides excellent homogeneity throughout the entire measurement volume and a large Field-of-View of 55 x 55 x 50 cm3. The result: fast examinations with robust and reliable fat saturation throughout the entire imaging volume, which is especially important in abdominal or off-center applications.

A new level of gradient power

With a gradient strength of up to 60/200 simultaneously for up to 25% higher SNR in diffusion weighted imaging, MAGNETOM Vida offers MR research power – but now in a patient-friendly 70 cm setting.

Cost-efficient energy management

An intelligent power management disables power-consuming components during scan breaks – EcoPower shuts off the cold head in standby, resulting in up to 30% energy savings compared to the industry average (COCIR average of MRI vendors3,4).


Embrace true 3T productivity with Turbo Suite and GO Technologies

MAGNETOM Vida embraces true 3T productivity and makes fast scan times and push-button examinations become clinical reality. At the core of its impressive acquisition speed lies our exclusive Turbo Suite: Disruptive acceleration technologies (e.g. Simultaneaous Multi-Slice and Compressed Sensing) shortening the entire examinations for the whole spectrum of clinical MRI, while keeping the quality of exam results.

GO Technologies are a family of solutions that accelerates the entire workflow of the examination: from patient positioning to result distribution.

GO Technologies consist of four main components, each contributing to a specific aspect of workflow optimization to enable higher throughput and robustness in clinical routine.


Embrace new 3T clinical capabilities with Inline Compressed Sensing

With Turbo Suite Elite, MAGNETOM Vida provides access to patients previously excluded from MRI because of their medical condition or the exam’s prohibitively complicated nature. Compressed Sensing Cardiac Cine and Compressed Sensing GRASP-VIBE enable free-breathing exams which help improve the patient experience, while extending your range of services. Significantly simplified procedures with automated workflow strengthen clinical fields with growth potential such as whole-body MRI.

With MR Fingerprinting (MRF)5, MAGNETOM Vida enables diagnostics at the frontier of a paradigm shift. MRF uses quantitative information from scans for decisions based on digital tissue data, not visual impressions, to improve tissue differentiation and enable less invasive diagnostics.
