Faster patient set-up
Tim technology accelerates patient set-up and provides high patient comfort. The Tim 4G SlideConnect® and DirectConnect® coils along with the Tim Dockable Table accelerate patient set-up even further.
Tim 4G DirectConnect and SlideConnect enable high patient comfort and ease-of-use thanks to:
- Faster connections
- Easier set-up
Tim Dockable Table – mobility done right
- Fast patient preparation even outside of examination room
- Integrated Spine coil
- Easy transport
- Optimized comfort for immobile patients
- Holds up to 250 kg/550 lb to accommodate more patients
“The MAGNETOM Aera’s detachable table is beneficial as it is easier for transferring bed patients, such as those with cord compression and for use in emergency situations. Radiographers are benefiting from the system’s ease-of-use and appreciate the integrated coil technology which is making for faster scans without compromising on image quality.”2

Go for consistent results, efficiently.
Siemens set the benchmark in MR scanning and productivity by introducing Dot. DotGO4 is Siemens’ next step in MRI exam software, combining intuitive protocol management with quality results for each exam. For true flexibility, consistency, and efficiency.
Flexibility. Consistency. Efficiency.
- Intuitive protocol management with one central and flexible user interface
- Quality results for each exam, consistent and reproducible
- Up to 20% shorter exam slots for more efficiency in MRI5
“On average, we were able to shorten the examination from 25 to 20 minutes per patient.”2

Expand your MRI services.
Accommodate more patients, get more referrals, and increase your patients’ satisfaction. Improve your marketability with quieter exams, 70 cm Open Bore, and ultra-short 145 cm system design and trendsetting applications.
New requirements and indications in MRI today are driven by
- demographic shift
- rise of chronic diseases
- fast pace of innovation
MAGNETOM Aera therefore offers a comprehensive and unique portfolio of trendsetting applications. Now available on MAGNETOM Aera, brand-new applications with syngo MR E114 helping you to expand your range of MRI services.
FREEZEit6 – our embrace motion technology – makes MRI faster and more robust than it has ever been, even in the most challenging cases. It opens up the wide field of body imaging.
Always the right contrast in dynamic liver imaging
TWIST-VIBE combines for the first time high temporal and excellent spatial resolution with full coverage for precision in dynamic liver MRI. It is reliable imaging from the very first shot, making time-consuming and costly repeat exams a thing of the past, always assuring correct contrast timing in dynamic liver imaging.

Free-breathing, contrast-enhanced body imaging
In the past, contrast-enhanced body MRI wasn’t an option for patients who have difficulties holding their breath. Now, with StarVIBE, they can breathe freely throughout the scan. The application intelligently resists motion artifacts, resulting in faster and more accurate exam results for a range of new patient populations.

7MR 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.
8The 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.
