MAGNETOM RT Pro edition for MAGNETOM Sola and MAGNETOM Vida

MAGNETOM RT Pro edition for MAGNETOM Sola and Vida

The time is now for MR in RT – with BioMatrix.

MRI utilization in radiation therapy treatment planning continues to see steady growth. Between 2006 and 2018 its utilization increased from 6% to 24%.1 The MAGNETOM RT Pro edition for MAGNETOM Sola and MAGNETOM Vida, the first MR scanners with BioMatrix Technology, addresses the challenges of patient variability for RT treatment planning. MAGNETOM Sola and MAGNETOM Vida deliver excellent soft-tissue contrast as well as imaging that can yield information for physicians regarding tumor extent and functional parameters. Efficiently integrating this additional modality into existing processes can add substantial value to radiotherapy and help advance your institution’s clinical capabilities.

MAGNETOM RT Pro edition for MAGNETOM Sola and MAGNETOM Vida - Support precision in radiotherapy with MRI Intelligence - BioMatrix Sensors
BioMatrix Sensors display a patient’s breathing curve directly at the scanner.

BioMatrix Technology, available on MAGNETOM Sola and MAGNETOM Vida, truly personalizes MRI and increases precise, reproducible imaging for more efficient RT planning, monitoring, and follow-up. BioMatrix consists of three key technologies: BioMatrix Sensors are respiratory sensors that automatically display a patient’s breathing curve and actively trigger acquisition sequences at the right point in time. BioMatrix Tuners improve the correlation of DWI to corresponding anatomical scans. With BioMatrix Interfaces, the BioMatrix dockable table with eDrive helps you move your patient effortlessly to and from the scanner, and docks automatically with one touch.

MAGNETOM RT Pro edition for MAGNETOM Sola and MAGNETOM Vida - Scan patients consistently in the treatment position - Couch-top overlays
Couch-top overlays from our RT partners are compatible with all MAGNETOM RT Pro edition scanners.

In order to provide precise and reproducible patient positioning, the MAGNETOM RT Pro edition offers dedicated hardware for high-quality MR imaging in the treatment position. To fully utilize MR imaging capabilities for RT treatment planning, we’ve partnered with leading companies in the RT market (LAP,3 Qfix,3 CIVCO,3 and Orfit3) to provide positioning and patient marking equipment which is compatible with all MAGNETOM RT Pro edition scanners. Furthermore, MAGNETOM Sola and MAGNETOM Vida come with a wide range of coils, enabling easy and fast patient positioning as well as precise image quality in the treatment position. Thanks to an ultra-high coil-element density, the new BioMatrix and UltraFlex coils provide increased SNR and enable high acceleration factors that can save considerable time.

MAGNETOM RT Pro edition for MAGNETOM Sola and MAGNETOM Vida - Rely on intuitive and dedicated RT workflows - RT Dot Engine
The RT Dot Engine provides dedicated RT protocols for brain, head/neck, and pelvis.

Adding MR into the RT workflow can be challenging, especially for those who have less experience in MR imaging. The RT Dot Engine and syngo.via RT Image Suite help users to incorporate MR into RT by providing workflow guidance – from image acquisition to postprocessing and contouring.4
Synthetic CT
, the latest feature of syngo.via RT Image Suite, enables users to implement an MR-only radiotherapy workflow.5
In order to perform precise target delineation, 4D MRI – RT Respiratory Self-Gating helps you caption organ motion in abdomen and thorax with automatic respiratory phase sorting during the entire free-breathing acquisition.
