From oncological conditions to neurological disorders, MRI plays a key role in the clinical pathway of many patients. But despite the continuous medical and technological progress, there are still many diseases not fully understood and patients that physicians struggle to help.

That is why we keep pushing the boundaries of high-end 3T MRI to support clinicians and scientists in their mission to address these challenges and ultimately improve patient care. MAGNETOM Cima.X is our strongest 3T MRI system ever that provides deeper insights into the human body. Transforming patient care and science, it features Gemini Gradients with 2001 mT/m at 200 T/m/s for an unparalleled whole-body performance. With MAGNETOM Cima.X you can make the difference.

MAGNETOM Cima.X introduces groundbreaking Gemini Gradients with unprecedented whole-body performance of 2001 mT/m at 200 T/m/s in clinical use. Nurtured by years of experience with our Connectom systems and driven by our unique Multi-GPA Technology, these Gemini Gradients will empower clinical care and push the boundaries of MR innovation. 

Gemini Gradients

Introducing the first 2001 mT/m at 200 T/m/s commercially available gradients with the highest gradient strength in a whole-body scanner. The whole-body gradient coils brings significant improvement to diffusion-weighted imaging, enabling the visualization of underlying structures that were previously unseeable. This has potential for furthering the understanding of the composition of voxels, delivering more information that can help to increase the understanding of diseases. 

Multi-GPA Technology

The driving force of the gradient system is the gradient power amplifier (GPA). The one-of-a-kind gradient array design in MAGNETOM Cima.X features our first Multi-GPA Technology with two separate gradient power amplifiers to deliver the required performance for unmatched gradient amplitude and maximum spatial resolution. And our new HydroCore Cooling will enable direct thermal contact with the gradient coolant, maximizing thermal energy transfer and dissipation. 

Ultra advanced 3T magnet

The foundation of MAGNETOM Cima.X is an exceptional 3T magnet that incorporates the knowledge and experience of Siemens Healthineers’ ultra-high field scanners. Our benchmark 3T magnet delivers excellent homogeneity, a large 55 x 55 x 50 cm3 FOV, with a 2,050 mm scan range, and outstanding long-term stability. A dedicated network of sensors in the magnet, so called frequalizers, allow constant adjustment of the transmit and receive parameters for maximum SNR. 

Brilliant images are at the heart of MAGNETOM Cima.X. Its consistent and precise head-to-toe images will deliver the foundation for confidence in diagnosis. Backed by unique hardware components and innovative software solutions, this imaging powerhouse transforms clinical care and paves the way for groundbreaking discoveries and clinical translation. 

“The research that we are currently doing with the diffusion MRI in collaboration with our physicists and mathematicians that work with us has shown that for accurately measure the microscopic dimension using diffusion, we need a gradient amplitude of at least 150 millitesla per meter.”2

Deep Resolve is our AI-powered image reconstruction technology that takes advantage of convolutional neural networks to accelerate MRI scans. Deep Resolve’s raw data-to image reconstruction and highly accelerated acquisition times are game changers in MRI, helping generate actionable insights for patients' diagnosis.

Cima.X Head Scan

Acquisition times in MRI are still a challenge for many vulnerable patients. Simultaneous Multi-Slice helps cut exam times, reduces DWI scan times throughout the body, and significantly improves temporal resolution for BOLD fMRI. Compressed Sensing drastically reduces acquisition times and offers new capabilities for 3D imaging, especially in the depiction of dynamic processes of moving organs. 

MAGNETOM Cima.X paves the way for a new reality in science and boosts collaboration and customization with Open Recon3. Deploy your custom reconstruction algorithms seamlessly into your clinical workflows while fostering open and collaborative innovation. Work with clinicians and scientists worldwide thanks to Open Recon3 and many other solutions that facilitate science. 

Open Recon

Part of the Open MAGNETOM platform, our Open Recon3 inline prototyping allows custom reconstruction algorithms to be easily run and adjusted, enabling seamless workflows. Open Recon also enables standardized inline access via ISMRM raw data format for data transfer and sharing standardized algorithms with other institutions.

“Open Recon3 will enable us to have easier, more effective, more efficient international collaborations and we can extend our global network of research partners in the interest of making a difference.” 2

Prof. Marco Palombo

"Having access to Open Recon on a system with ultra strong gradients would definitely boost not only the translatability, but also the impact of our research, because everything can be done on the scanner and we bypass this troublesome exchange of data and information."2
