Healthcare providers worldwide are under increasing pressure to manage two contradictory forces: delivering highest-quality care with ever decreasing financial means. The number of MRI scans continues to rise, as MRI continues to prove its diagnostic value and expands growing clinical fields1. At the same time, global reimbursements continue to fall. MAGNETOM Skyra is 3T MRI designed to turn these challenges into opportunities.

Features & Benefits

Growing healthcare expenditures and changing patient populations lead to an increased demand for standardization and higher efficiency. With a full range of routine and advanced applications, MAGNETOM Skyra allows you to answer these challenges. Improve your processes through greater standardization and extend your clinical capabilities by offering new services.

Deliver exceptional quality and speed

Make the most of your MRI scanner and improve cost efficiency by accelerating scans for each and every patient. GOBrain enables clinically validated push-button brain examinations in five minutes. This is enabled by Tim 4G's ultra-high coil element density, delivering exceptional quality and speed for efficient processes, day-in and day-out. In addition, CAIPIRINHA reduces the need for rescans through shorter breath hold times.


Go for consistent results, efficiently

Tailor and manage protocols to your specific requirements, improve flexibility, and deliver high-quality care, consistently.2 DotGO keeps your processes running on time with intuitive protocol management, user guidance, and smart automation techniques integrated in one user-interface. Leverage powerful DotGO solutions to ensure efficient workflow and consistent image quality – across all patients and operators.


Expand your MRI services

Serve new and growing patient populations with trendsetting applications to differentiate your institute. Overcome the challenges of body MRI with our embrace motion technology FREEZEit and offer free-breathing examinations to those with limited breath hold capacity. Further expand your MRI services with Simultaneous Multi-Slice (SMS), a paradigm shift in MR imaging. With SMS, it is now possible to accelerate 2D exams significantly and perform advanced neurological examinations, previously excluded from routine imaging.


Service and exchange

Siemens Healthineers’ service offerings ensure that you stay at the leading edge of 3T technology throughout the entire MRI lifecycle – from installation, to operation, to upgrades, to ongoing support. Moreover, our active communication platforms and communities – such as MAGNETOM World – keep you up to speed on the world of MRI and enable you to share your ideas and experiences with your peers.

Neurology
Benefit from fast protocols and quieter exams for uncooperative patients. Accommodate a wide variety of patients while benefiting from a superb SNR for both clinical and research imaging, e.g., with the Head/Neck 64. Your MAGNETOM Skyra's Neuro Suite includes advanced protocols for diffusion imaging, perfusion imaging, and fMRI. The Brain Dot Engine helps increase consistency, also when conditions change during the course of the examination.
Siemens - MAGNETOM Skyra - Image - Orthopedics
The standard Ortho Suite comes with a comprehensive set of protocols for joint imaging, including the spine. Tim 4G’s ultra high-density coils for MSK imaging improve SNR and anatomic coverage. DotGO’s customizable workflows feature AutoAlign and AutoCoverage for knee, hip, shoulder and MPR planning for fast 3D measurements and Inline 3D multiplanar reformatting. WARP4 and Advanced WARP4, provide susceptibility artifact reduction functionality (such as needed for MR conditional metal implants).

Siemens - MRI - MAGNETOM Skyra - Image - Breast MRI
A variety of breast coils are enabled by the Tim Coil Interface resulting in flexible breast imaging options to meet the variety of customer needs. From clinical imaging to biopsy guidance, you can count on a wide selection of breast coils and outstanding image quality. Additionally, MAGNETOM Skyra's 70 cm open bore makes it possible to comfortably accommodate more patients. The Breast Dot Engine offers different workflows for optimized image quality and consistency.
Siemens - MRI - MAGNETOM Skyra - Image - Prostate MRI
Prostate MRI utilizes high-channel surface coils, offering a non-invasive and highly accurate technique for the early detection of prostate cancer. The Body 60 coil can be used to reduce scan times by up to 20%3 helping improve your institutions´ process efficiency. With MAGNETOM Skyra you benefit from a comprehensive solution portfolio for certainty in prostate cancer assessment, ranging from coils, scan applications, reading and reporting software, to therapy monitoring tools.
Siemens - MRI - MAGNETOM Skyra - Image - Pediatric MRI
Tissue relaxation times in pediatrics5 are very different compared to those of adults. The reasons for these differences are: developing tissues, body size, faster heart rates, and compliance with breathhold commands. With MAGNETOM Skyra, protocols are available to be adapted for imaging infants.
University Children`s Hospital, Basel, Switzerland
Siemens - MRI - MAGNETOM Skyra - Oncology
MAGNETOM Skyra’s Onco Suite features a collection of sequences, protocols, and evaluation tools that guide users through the detailed assessment of a variety of oncological conditions. Acquire whole body coverage for metastasis staging in a single, continuous move with the TimCT Onco Dot Engine. Together with Dot’s on-board guidance, this innovative technology improves patient throughput and provides superb image quality.

4The MRI restrictions (if any) of the metal implant must be considered prior to patient undergoing MRI exam. MR imaging of patients with metallic implants brings specific risks. However, certain implants are approved by the governing regulatory bodies to be MR conditionally safe. For such implants, the previously mentioned warning may not be applicable. Please contact the implant manufacturer for the specific conditional information. The conditions for MR safety are the responsibility of the implant manufacturer, not of Siemens.

5MR scanning has not been established as safe for imaging fetuses and infants under two years of age. The responsible physician has to decide about the benefit of the MRI examination in comparison to other imaging procedures.
