Features & Benefits


Deliver productivity gains

MAGNETOM Altea is designed with productivity written in its DNA. At the core of its impressive acquisition speed lies our exclusive Turbo Suite. And with the clear goal to reduce the overall patient time slot, MAGNETOM Altea offers further remarkable innovations to boost workflow efficiency. Powered by GO technologies, supported by AI, and with our innovative BioMatrix technology, numerous time-consuming workflow steps are significantly reduced through automation, providing you with full confidence to deliver productivity gains.
 


Deliver reproducible results

MAGNETOM Altea is the key to a superior standard of consistent diagnostic results across your institution. With our eight unique Dot Engines and the innovative BioMatrix Tuners, highly standardized and reproducible scan results are consistently achieved. 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.


Deliver patient satisfaction

MAGNETOM Altea puts patients at greater ease. Through Innovision2 – the revolutionary in-bore infotainment and noise cancellation solution – patient anxiety is replaced with confidence and comfort. And with our unique patient-centered coil portfolio powered by BioMatrix and Tim 4G technology, preparation and scanning are considerably simplified and shortened, providing you with full confidence to deliver patient satisfaction.
