Increasing demand for MRI procedures
Operating MRIs is getting more and more challenging
- New indications and guideline changes lead to rising patient numbers and procedures2
- Reimbursements are constantly dropping3
- And, patient satisfaction4 as well as referrer satisfaction are getting a critical economical factor for radiology practices and departments alike
Address these challenges by upgrading your MAGNETOM scanner
An upgrade to the Excelerate Edition will bring your MR scanner to the next level of MRI imaging. With this innovative combination of the latest syngo MR XA30 software platform as well as productivity boosting Turbo Suite Excelerate software application package you can
- Significantly increase your productivity,
- Participate in new MRI growth fields, and
- Raise the consistency across your scanner fleet.
Eigenschaften & Vorteile
Increase your productivity
With rising patient volumes in the face of falling reimbursement, there is a clear need for greater efficiency. At the same time, the quality of exam results should not diminish. We are committed to help you transform care delivery by significantly shortening entire examinations for the whole spectrum of clinical MRI with Turbo Suite.
Turbo Suite Excelerate powered by Simultaneous Multi-Slice and Compressed Sensing
MR-Injector coupling via Imaging System Interface (ISI)4
When looking into dynamic MRI it can be challenging and time-consuming to synchronize the MR scanner with the contrast media injection. With the new optional Bayer-Siemens MR-Injector coupling via Imaging System Interface (ISI) you can save time, increase confidence, and enhance patient care.
Participate in MR growth fields
With an upgrade to the Excelerate Edition you can expand your clinical capabilities and increase the number of patients eligible for MRI. You get access to many new clinical software applications as well as new coils, that allow you to participate in MR growth fields:
