Features & Benefits
The power to reach further and enter new territories is essential for those who shape the future of healthcare. Whether for basic, clinical or neuroscience research endeavors, MAGNETOM Terra lets you go deeper than ever before. All in one, the power of 7T MRI helps you deliver previously unseen insights that could improve patient outcomes and further enhance your reputation.
Double SNR for more precision2 – With clinical applications in Dual Mode
When it comes to improving patient outcomes by answering the most challenging clinical questions, enabling deeper insights can make a difference. With double the SNR of 3T, imaging at 7T offers potential higher resolution in both anatomical and functional imaging.
Help improve patient outcomes:
- First 7T scanner released for clinical use
- 0.2 mm in-plane resolution to visualize previously unseen structures
- 0.14 cm³ voxel sizes for innovative metabolic brain mapping 3
- Submillimeter BOLD fMRI precision to visualize sub-cortical activations4
Unlock research beyond clinical limits – With up to 16-channel parallel transmit1
When it comes to research, the freedom to explore new territories is imperative in order to gain a competitive edge. MAGNETOM Terra unlocks a whole new world of potential for basic, clinical and neuroscience research helping you translate your outcomes into better clinical care. The parallel transmit technology of MAGNETOM Terra with up to 16-channel pTX gives you all the freedom you need for the imaging of challenging body regions.
Unlock powerful research capabilities:
- Visualize sub-cortical activations with BOLD fMRI4
- More power for diffusion MRI with 80/200 gradients
- Higher acceleration factors with 64 receive channels5
Physiology is at your fingertips
MAGNETOM Terra is the first 7T MRI scanner to unleash the full potential of the increased MR signal with multinuclear imaging and spectroscopy in clinical settings. The multinuclear option allows the use of two dedicated coils in clinical mode – a 23Na head coil and a 31P loop coil, to explore metabolic insights. In research mode, MAGNETOM Terra enables the use of up to 10 nuclei.6
Explore physiology with multinuclear MR:
- Sodium MRI and phosphorus MRS in clinical mode
- Dedicated coils for multinuclear applications
- Support of up to 10 nuclei in research mode1
