Turbo Suite

Setting the pace in MR acceleration.

With rising patient volumes in the face of falling reimbursement, there is a clear need for greater efficiency. At the same time, the quality of exam results should not diminish. We are committed to help you transform care delivery by significantly shortening entire examinations for the whole spectrum of clinical MRI. When upgrading your system to MAGNETOM Avantofit, MAGETOM Skyrafit or MAGNETOM Prismafit you get access to Turbo Suite.

Turbo Suite offers the right solution for your clinical question. It is comprised of disruptive MR acceleration technologies, which are tailored to the clinical question. With Turbo Suite you accelerate the complete exam, covering all contrasts, all orientations, static and dynamic imaging, leading to up to 50%2 shorter exams.

Get ready for the future of MR and setting the pace in MR acceleration with a fit upgrade and Turbo Suite.

Experience outstanding gradient performance with MAGNETOM Prisma fit

With Tim 4G’s ultra-high-density array you will get increased signal-to-noise (SNR) for all areas of interest. In this case of a large-field-of-view abdomen up to 50 coil elements can be activated.

Additionally, with Siemens standard parallel transmit solution TimTX TrueForm you receive excellent B1 homogeneity leading to a very homogeneous 3T image quality throughout the body.

When upgrading to MAGNETOM Prismafit you immediately benefit from DotGO Siemens' next step in MRI exam software. It combines intuitive protocol management with quality results for each exam. For true flexibility, consistency, and efficiency.

Flexibility. Consistency. Efficiency.

  • Intuitive protocol management with one central and flexible user interface
  • Quality results for each exam, consistent and reproducible
  • Up to 20% shorter exam slots for more efficiency in MRI3
