MAGNETOM SkyraMaximize 3T.

Healthcare providers worldwide are under increasing pressure to manage two contradictory forces: delivering highest-quality care with ever decreasing financial means. The number of MRI scans continues to rise, as MRI continues to prove its diagnostic value and expands growing clinical fields1. At the same time, global reimbursements continue to fall. MAGNETOM Skyra is 3T MRI designed to turn these challenges into opportunities.

Features & Benefits

Growing healthcare expenditures and changing patient populations lead to an increased demand for standardization and higher efficiency. With a full range of routine and advanced applications, MAGNETOM Skyra allows you to answer these challenges. Improve your processes through greater standardization and extend your clinical capabilities by offering new services.

Deliver exceptional quality and speed

Make the most of your MRI scanner and improve cost efficiency by accelerating scans for each and every patient. GOBrain enables clinically validated push-button brain examinations in five minutes. This is enabled by Tim 4G's ultra-high coil element density, delivering exceptional quality and speed for efficient processes, day-in and day-out. In addition, CAIPIRINHA reduces the need for rescans through shorter breath hold times.

Siemens - MRI - MAGNETOM Skyra - Image - Go for consistent results, efficiently

Two people sitting on chairs and talking, as an example for expand your MRI services

Serve new and growing patient populations with trendsetting applications to differentiate your institute. Overcome the challenges of body MRI with our embrace motion technology FREEZEit and offer free-breathing examinations to those with limited breath hold capacity. Further expand your MRI services with Simultaneous Multi-Slice (SMS), a paradigm shift in MR imaging. With SMS, it is now possible to accelerate 2D exams significantly and perform advanced neurological examinations, previously excluded from routine imaging.

Two mens shaking hands

Siemens Healthineers’ service offerings ensure that you stay at the leading edge of 3T technology throughout the entire MRI lifecycle – from installation, to operation, to upgrades, to ongoing support.
