nexaris MR

Improving the management of neurosurgery patients.

As part of our nexaris Therapy Suites, our solution previously known as MAGNETOM Combi Suite Neurosurgery, is now called nexaris MR. nexaris MR combines premium MRI technology with state-of-the art OR solutions. Resulting in highly detailed image quality, safe, efficient patient set-up and -transport, as well as cost-effective and flexible solutions for siting and OR tables.

MRI guidance in neurosurgery can significantly improve the management of brain tumor patients:

  • Revealing residual tumor in 65% of patients in an intraoperative setting.1
  • Maximizing the extent of resection,improving patient survival by up to 55%.1
  • Helping to achieve five times more total resections, compared to white-light surgery.2

Easy siting and integration of MRI systems with different room solutions.

With their small footprints, MAGNETOM Aera and MAGNETOM Skyra are easy to site and quickly integrated in your intraoperative setting.

Being a complete, yet flexible solution, MAGNETOM Combi Suite Neurosurgery provides great versatility to fit your needs and ensures optimal use of your facilities.

  • Two-room siting scenario: Combine one operating room with one MR room open for routine diagnostics.
  • Three-room siting scenario Possibility to have two operating rooms combined with one MR room open for routine diagnostics.

Clinical Use

nexaris MR allows for MRI in the Neuro-OR setting with a smooth patient transfer to and from the MRI system. Intraoperative MR imaging provides valuable information that might change your surgical strategy.

MAGNETOM Aera
nexaris MR can be configured with MAGNETOM Aera.

nexaris MR can be configured to your needs: You can integrate MAGNETOM Aera or MAGNETOM Skyra the OR table of choice: The dedicated solution is compatible with both MAQUET and TRUMPF surgical tables.
