Healthcare providers worldwide are under increasing pressure to manage two contradictory forces: delivering highest-quality care with ever decreasing financial means. The number of MRI scans continues to rise, as MRI continues to prove its diagnostic value and expands growing clinical fields. At the same time, global reimbursements continue to fall. MAGNETOM Aera is 1.5T MRI designed to turn these challenges into opportunities.
Features & Benefits
Growing healthcare expenditures and changing patient populations lead to an increased demand for standardization and higher efficiency. With a full range of routine and advanced applications, MAGNETOM Aera allows you to answer these challenges. Improve your processes through greater standardization and extend your clinical capabilities by offering new services.
Deliver exceptional quality and speed
Make the most of your MRI scanner and improve cost efficiency by accelerating scans for each and every patient. GOBrain enables clinically validated push-button brain examinations in under six minutes. This is enabled by Tim 4G's ultra-high coil element density, delivering excellent image and achieving up to 40% reduction of scan times1, day-in and day-out. In addition, CAIPIRINHA reduces the need for rescans through shorter breath hold times.
Go for consistent results, efficiently
Tailor and manage protocols to your specific requirements, improve flexibility, and deliver high-quality care, consistently.2 DotGO keeps your processes running on time with intuitive protocol management, user guidance, and smart automation techniques integrated in one user-interface. Leverage powerful DotGO solutions to ensure efficient workflow and consistent image quality – across all patients and operators.
Expand your MRI services
Serve new and growing patient populations with trendsetting applications to differentiate your institute. Overcome the challenges of body MRI with our embrace motion technology FREEZEit and offer free-breathing examinations to those with limited breath hold capacity. Further expand your MRI services with Simultaneous Multi-Slice (SMS), a paradigm shift in MR imaging. With SMS, it is now possible to accelerate 2D exams significantly and perform advanced neurological examinations, previously excluded from routine imaging.
Service and exchange
Siemens Healthineers’ service offerings ensure that you stay at the leading edge of 1.5T technology throughout the entire MRI lifecycle – from installation, to operation, to upgrades, to ongoing support. Moreover, our active communication platforms and communities – such as MAGNETOM World – keep you up to speed on the world of MRI and enable you to share your ideas and experiences with your peers.

4The MRI restrictions (if any) of the metal implant must be considered prior to patient undergoing MRI exam. MR imaging of patients with metallic implants brings specific risks. However, certain implants are approved by the governing regulatory bodies to be MR conditionally safe. For such implants, the previously mentioned warning may not be applicable. Please contact the implant manufacturer for the specific conditional information. The conditions for MR safety are the responsibility of the implant manufacturer, not of Siemens Healthineers.
5MR scanning has not been established as safe for imaging fetuses and infants under two years of age. The responsible physician has to decide about the benefit of the MRI examination in comparison to other imaging procedures.
