 A system that offers unprecedented access to 3 Tesla magnetic resonance imaging? The answer is MAGNETOM Spectra1. It’s the key to a new scope of image and healthcare quality for patients. It’s the key to a new level of usability and diagnostic confidence for physicians. And, it’s the key to ensure premium patient care at an attractive total cost of ownership for radiologists. If access is what you are looking for, then MAGNETOM Spectra is your key to 3T.

Features & Benefits

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 Healthineers product quality.


It's quality. Unchallenged.

MAGNETOM Spectra delivers crisp, high-resolution images that will inspire you with a level of accuracy and detail unprecedented in this particular product range.

  • Siemens Healthineers 3T image quality
  • Tim 4G integrated coil technology with DirectRF
    - Higher accuracy, resolution and signal to noise
    - 24 receive channels for up to 120 coil elements
    - High density coil arrays, head-to-toe
  • Best-in-class 3T image homogeneity with TimTX TrueForm
  • Maximum range of clinical applications
  • Outstanding image consistency and high reproducibility with Dot

 


It's usability. Unlimited.

To increase scanning results to a higher possible level, regardless of a patient’s condition, as well as to maximize user confidence, you need an intelligent usability concept. This is a key strength of MAGNETOM Spectra.

  • Dot engines - easy and guided
    - One-click exam strategy selection to adapt your scan planning to different patient conditions
    - Automatic positioning with AutoFoV for a consistent and fast set-up
    - Synchronized timing of scanning and breathing with AutoVoice Commands
  • Tim 4G integrated coil technology
    - Highly flexible and scalable to the anatomy of the patient
    - Ultra lightweight coils are easy to carry and position
    - Easy coil connection with the Siemens unique SlideConnect and DirectConnect
  • Easy and comfortable patient set-up with the patient-table-integrated 24-element spine coil

 


It's patient-care. Uncompromised.

Providing a high level of patient care in magnetic resonance imaging is closely connected to increasing access to premium diagnostic technology for patients all over the world.

  • Access to premium patient care with cutting-edge 3T technology
  • Easy and streamlined workflow with Dot
  • Fast scans enabled by Tim 4G
  • Maximum system uptime due to our service strategy, providing undisturbed examination workflow
  • One user interface and one common reading solution for all modalities with syngo and syngo.via
  • Fast break even due to optimum TCO (Total cost of ownership)
  • Low operating cost through multiple measures like the optimized cooling system and state-of-the-art zero helium boil-off technology
  • Low installation cost through small footprint and fast installation

 

Clinical Use

Neurology
Orthopedics
Body Imaging
Cardiology
Angiography
Breast MRI
Oncology
MRI MAGNETOM Spectra neurology imaging
Comprehensive head and spine examinations can be performed with dedicated programs. High-resolution protocols and fast protocols for uncooperative patients are provided. The Neuro Suite also includes protocols for diffusion imaging, perfusion Neurology imaging, and fMRI.
MRI MAGNETOM Spectra othopedics imaging
The Ortho Suite is a comprehensive collection of protocols for joint imaging including the spine. It includes high-end high resolution as well as fast 2D and 3D imaging sequences like MEDIC, SPACE, VIBE or DESS, various fat suppression techniques and protocols for dedicated clinical needs motion-insensitive protocols.
MRI MAGNETOM Spectra body imaging
The Body Suite is dedicated for clinical body applications. Ultra-fast high-resolution 2D and 3D protocols are provided for abdomen, pelvis, MR Colonography, MRCP, dynamic kidney, and MR Urography applications. 2D PACE technique makes body imaging easy allowing for multi-breath hold examinations as well as free breathing during the scans. Motion artifacts are greatly reduced with 2D PACE Inline technology.
MRI MAGNETOM Spectra cardiology imaging
The Cardiac Suite covers comprehensive 2D routine cardiac applications, ranging from morphology and ventricular function to tissue characterization. Featuring syngo® BEAT 2D in conjunction with iPAT and T-PAT techniques.
MRI MAGNETOM Spectra angiography imaging
Excellent MR Angiography can be performed to visualize arteries and veins with or without contrast agent.
MRI MAGNETOM Spectra breast imaging
MR imaging provides excellent tissue contrast that may be useful in the evaluation of the breasts. Extremely high spatial and temporal resolution can be achieved in very short measuring times by using iPAT with syngo® GRAPPA. Excellent soft tissue differentiation, customized protocols (e.g. with fat saturation or water excitation or silicone excitation), as well as flexible multiplanar visualization allow for fast, simple and reproducible evaluation of MR breast examinations.
MRI MAGNETOM Spectra oncology imaging
MR imaging has an excellent advantage of soft tissue contrast, multiplanar capabilities and the possibility of selectively suppressing specific tissue e.g. fat or water. The Onco Suite features a collection of sequences as well as protocols and evaluation tools that may be used in a detailed screening of clinical indications, such as in hepatic neoplasms.

Hear from the experts

Listen to the feedback on MAGNETOM Spectra – directly from the experts.

"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."2

Dr. K. Saravanan
Chief Radiologist & Owner, Saravana Scans
Chennai, India
“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.”2

Prof. Dr. Francis Lau

Head of Radiology Department, Island Hospital
Penang, Malaysia
“MAGNETOM Spectra gave us the Dot engine. It simplifies MRI scanning. And helps us to make the diagnosis easier and quicker.”2

MAGNETOM Spectra
"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%."2

Qi Yu Long
Technologist, Peking University Shenzhen Hospital
Shenzhen, China
“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.”2
