With the most advanced coil portfolio in its class, MAGNETOM Spectra provides image quality for all anatomies. It runs Dot engines – the toolset that allows you to personalize and streamline your workflow. And there is an easy way to process, read and share your images: syngo.via.
Overview Technical Details
Siemens' unique technologies
- Tim 4G: The 4th generation of proved Tim (Total imaging matrix) technology provides up to 120 coils elements3 with up to 24 channels for the accuracy you need.
- Dot: Dot is the next movement in MRI. Dot is a new way of scanning in MRI – a better way. Dot scanning uses a suite of customizable engines. Allowing the user to personalize exams according to patient needs, build in step-by-step user guidance, and automate MRI exams – either "out of the box" or based on the institution's standards.
