FREEZEit7 – embrace motion technology – makes body MRI faster and more robust than it has ever been, even in the most challenging cases. It opens up the wide field of body imaging.
Always the right contrast in dynamic liver imaging
TWIST-VIBE combines for the first time high temporal and excellent spatial resolution with full coverage for precision in dynamic liver MRI. It is reliable imaging from the very first shot, making time-consuming and costly repeat exams a thing of the past, always assuring correct contrast timing in dynamic liver imaging.
Free-breathing, contrast-enhanced body imaging
In the past, contrast-enhanced body MRI wasn’t an option for patients who have difficulties holding their breath. Now, with StarVIBE, they can breathe freely throughout the scan. The application intelligently resists motion artifacts, resulting in faster and more accurate exam results for a range of new patient populations.
The Advanced WARP functionality lets you serve rapidly-growing patient populations with artificial joints. The benefits are substantial: Infections can be diagnosed earlier and there’s a significant gain in image quality.
MyoMaps generates comprehensive pixel-based T1, T2, and T2* colored parametric maps on the fly, providing you for the first time an additional layer of valuable diagnostic information about even subtle changes in tissue composition.

11The 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.
