Cardiovascular MRIEfficient, reliable, ready.

Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) is the current gold standard for imaging cardiac anatomy, function, and advanced myocardial tissue characterization. As such, CMR is a powerful tool which can offer both diagnostic and prognostic insight into many complex cardiac conditions.

With innovative applications for highly accelerated CMR exams in free-breathing, imaging for patients prone to susceptibility artifacts and now CMR without ECG, Siemens Healthineers is working to bring the benefits of CMR to an ever broader range of patients.

Cardiac applications

challenge

Enables high-quality diagnostic imaging, even in patients with arrhythmias and those who cannot hold their breath.

Compressed Sensing supports segmented Cine imaging in high spatial and temporal resolution with very short breath-holds. The Compressed Sensing real-time technique enables high-quality diagnostic imaging in free-breathing. These techniques can dramatically speed up cardiac scans, increase efficiency and expand the patient population eligible for Cardiac MRI.


MyoMaps

Enables pixel-based quantitation of myocardial tissue for the differential diagnosis of myocardial disease.

Used together with HeartFreeze, our motion correction algorithm, MyoMaps supports the inline generation of T1, T2 and T2* colored parametric maps. MyoMaps helps distinguish between various myocardial pathologies, e.g. detecting myocardial inflammation (T1 Map); depicting cardiac edema (T2 Map); and improving early detection of iron overload (T2* Map)

Enables Late Gadolinium Enhancement (LGE) imaging in free-breathing.

Available on BioMatrix systems, PSIR HeartFreeze3,4 with motion compensation algorithms enables high-resolution LGE imaging in free-breathing for viability assessment, even in patients with arrhythmias and those who cannot hold their breath.


High Bandwidth Inversion Recovery

Our new high bandwidth sequence extends the benefits of CMR exams to patients prone to susceptibility artefacts.


The myExam Cardiac Assist harnesses our unique standardization and automation technology to make cardiac scans faster and more robust.

Enables a comprehensive Cardiac MR examination in less than 30 minutes.

This Siemens-unique myExam Cardiac Assist is a highly automated tool to help plan and execute CMR examinations. Using AI-powered algorithms such as AutoAlign, the myExam Cardiac Assist enables automatic planning of all cardiac views for standardized, reproducible cardiac scans. Step-by-step guidance takes the complexity out of cardiac exams and contributes to speed and efficiency.

Enables acquiring optimally timed contrast images with interactive bolus timing.

Achieve consistent contrast agent timing with every Angio examination. Deliver clear answers to your referring physicians, read and report MR Angio cases performed consistently with optimized kinetic timing.

Enables a completely new non-contrast MR Angiography technique.
QISS aids in improving patient safety and compliance for higher accuracy5 and better disease management, while maintaining the diagnostic certainty you need in peripheral MRA exams.
