Session 1: Latest Technology Advances in MRI Spine Imaging

The advances in MRI technology have been exciting. This presentation will explore and discuss some latest innovative technologies that benefit MR spine imaging with expanded imaging capability, accelerated speed, unparallel precision, and uncompromised patient comfort.
  • Artificial intelligence (AI) plays the role of assistant for daily clinical MRI Spine imaging
  • Compressed sensing takes MRI Spine metal imaging to the next level
  • Coil Shim technology benefits neck/cervical spine imaging with superior shim quality around the neck-thorax junction.
  • Modern Spine Diffusion Imaging with RESOLVE and ZOOMit Pro
Speaker: Chen Wei, AP Training Center, MR Trainer and Regional MR Application Specialist, Siemens Healthineers

Session 2: Delivering Outcomes that Matter with Robotic Image-guided Hybrid OR

A hybrid OR offers substantial advantages in a complex clinical environment. Explore the benefits when you maximize the capabilities of our robotic-assisted hybrid OR in your spine surgeries:
  • Speed: Faster operations and faster recovery for patients
  • Precision: High-resolution imaging in the OR providing image-fusion for all necessary information in one image
  • Less repetition: Right image technology increases accuracy and can reduce secondary surgeries and readmissions
Speaker: Kenneth Ho, Regional Product Manager, Advanced Therapies, Siemens Healthineers

Session 3: New perspectives. Full control.

Conventional 2D imaging may not always provide enough information to safeguard correct placement of screws and implants.

Intraoperative 3D imaging can therefore be an important factor in improving surgical outcomes.
  • Current practices – 2D excellence
  • Experience the possibilities of intraoperative 3D imaging
  • How intraoperative 3D imaging plays a part in improving surgical outcome
Speaker: Vivien Tan, Regional Product Specialist, Advanced Therapies, Siemens Healthineers
