    MAGNETOM Altea

    MAGNETOM Altea is designed with productivity written in its DNA. One great component is our new and groundbreaking acceleration technology Deep Resolve, an AI-powered image reconstruction technology that takes advantage of convolutional neural networks. Together with Turbo Suite and its acceleration techniques, MAGNETOM Altea achieves the goal of reducing overall patient slot times. 
    With myExam Companion numerous time-consuming workflow steps are significantly reduced through automation, providing you with full confidence to deliver productivity gains.

    MAGNETOM Altea

    MAGNETOM Altea is the key to a superior standard of consistent diagnostic results across your institution. myExam Companion helps the users to efficiently achieve high-quality results-regardless of their experience level, the patient, or throughput. Especially our myExam Implant Suite1 makes examining patients with MR Conditional implants easy and reliable. Striving also for consistency across your entire MR system fleet, our unified syngo MR XA software platform and the game-changing
    syngo Virtual Cockpit3 are the key to unleashing your institution’s huge potential, providing you with full confidence to deliver reproducible results.

    Beat Sensor vs. conventional ECG setup 

    MAGNETOM Altea puts patients at greater ease. With our unique patient-centered coil portfolio powered by BioMatrix Technology and Tim 4G technology, preparation and scanning are considerably simplified and shortened, providing you with full confidence to deliver patient satisfaction. Especially with our unique BioMatrix Beat Sensor which simplifies and speeds up the preparation time for an MR cardiac examination. This benefits both the patient and the user. Through Innovision – the revolutionary in-bore infotainment and noise cancellation solution – patient anxiety is replaced with confidence and comfort.
