Caratteristiche e vantaggi

With MAGNETOM Spectra we are closing the gap between brilliant 3T imaging and cost sensitivity. MAGNETOM Spectra combines outstanding 3T image quality and typical Siemens product quality.

"MAGNETOM Spectra was an excellent choice. It has given us 3T capability. It produces high-resolution images and it fulfilled all of our expectations – from head to toe. (...)
Of course economics is one of the major important issues. Funding for any MRI is a big issue. To make any project successful the total cost of ownership should be less. Siemens has brought in a 3 Tesla with the latest technology. If 3T MAGNETOM Spectra would not have been offered to us, we would not have gone into the 3T segment at all."

“In using MAGNETOM Spectra, we find that the fat suppression and homogeneity of images are excellent. And we are able to see especially parts that were difficult to image before, which are curve parts especially around the neck, which we find that is a problem area. For the abdominal imaging we find that the 3T provides better images than the current 1.5 tesla machine that we are using. If we had a choice we would put all our patients in the 3T machine - because of the improved resolution and the clarity of the images.” 1

"We are so busy. How to reduce scanning time is very important to us. I think MAGNETOM SPECTRA can reduce the scanning time, because it's easy to use - in some scanning up to 30%." 1

“In this country prevention medicine is very popular. In our hospital more than 200 patients are following up with small aneurisms. We have 3 or 4 patients proofed that it was not an aneurism, using 3T MRI. It was only like a loop of the normal vessels…very good for the patient. They really want to get examination with 3T MRI…I can now say that MAGNETOM Spectra is one of our best investments.” 1

Angiografia

È possibile eseguire un'angiografia RM di buona qualità per visualizzare le arterie e le vene con o senza mezzo di contrasto.


Cardiologia

La Cardiac Suite copre tutte le applicazioni cardiologiche di routine in 2D che includono la morfologia, la funzione ventricolare, la caratterizzazione tissutale, ecc. Dotata di syngo® BEAT 2D in combinazione con tecniche di iPAT e T-PAT.


Addome

La Body Suite è dedicata alle applicazioni cliniche che interessano il corpo. Protocolli 2D e 3D veloci e ad alta risoluzione sono disponibili per applicazioni per l'addome, il bacino, colonscopia virtuale, colangio-pancreatografia RM (MRCP), scintigrafia renale dinamica e urografia RM.

La tecnica 2D PACE rende semplice l'imaging dell'intero corpo, consentendo esami a respiri trattenuti multipli, nonché la respirazione libera durante le scansioni. La tecnologica Inline 2D PACE rende possibile una riduzione significativa degli artefatti da movimento.


Oncologia

L'imaging a RM presenta un buon vantaggio in termini di contrasto dei tessuti molli, funzionalità multiplanari e possibilità di sopprimere i maniera selettiva tessuti specifici quali quello adiposo e l'acqua. L'Onco Suite è dotata di una raccolta di sequenze, di protocolli e di strumenti di valutazione che possono essere utilizzati in uno screening dettagliato delle indicazioni cliniche come nel caso delle neoplasie epatiche.
