In the face of rising patient volumes and falling reimbursements, there is a strong need for healthcare providers to boost their productivity in MRI. Low productivity affects patient waiting times, revenue, referral, and patient satisfaction. With our solutions, we are moving the needle in MRI productivity by streamlining the entire workflow: All the way from patient preparation to image acquisition and postprocessing/ patient changeover, while maintaining a high standard of image quality as well as patient comfort.

Firsthand insights from DIE RADIOLOGIE in Munich, Germany
DIE RADIOLOGIE5, a large multi-site radiology practice in Munich, Germany, is already using our MRI productivity solutions on their MAGNETOM Sola, with which they perform a broad range of MRI examinations. MAGNETOM Sola has enabled DIE RADIOLOGIE to reduce the average slot time by 20 minutes, resulting in a throughput of 30 patients in a 10-hour shift. Thanks to this accelerated workflow, DIE RADIOLOGIE has increased patient throughput by 17% while maintaining excellent image quality.

Firsthand insights from ZNA Jan Palfijn hospital in Antwerp, Belgium
The ZNA Jan Palfijn Hospital in Merksem, Belgium, is an important general hospital in the north of the city of Antwerp. They upgraded their only 1.5T MAGNETOM Aera scanner to the all-new MAGNETOM Sola Fit, on which they perform all range of MRI examinations from neurological to MSK, abdominal as well as breast MRI scans. After the upgrade they were able to achieve much shorter examination times while maintaining high image quality in all body areas. Additionally, they could reduce their no scanning times from 6 minutes to 4:55 minutes in average1. Thanks to the new AI powered one-touch patient positioning BioMatrix Select&GO that comes with the new system design, times between examinations can be reduced. All this helped to increase productivity by 30%1.
