With your MAGNETOM Aera you get a comprehensive application coverage as standard. Additionally, trendsetting innovations give you the versatility to expand your MRI services to meet the increasing demands in clinical healthcare.
Combined with Tim 4G and DotGO1, this comprehensive application portfolio brings even the most complex exams into your clinical routine. Every case. Every day.
Experience high resolution and benefit from fast protocols and quieter exams for uncooperative patients. Your MAGNETOM Aera Neuro Suite includes advanced protocols for diffusion imaging, perfusion imaging, and fMRI. And the Brain Dot Engine helps to increase consistency, also when conditions change during the course of the examination.
With Ortho Suite comes a comprehensive collection of protocols for joint imaging including the spine. Tim 4G’s new ultra high-density coils for MSK imaging improve SNR and anatomic coverage. Dot’s customizable workflows feature AutoAlign and AutoCoverage for knee, hip, and shoulder and MPR planning for fast 3D measurements and Inline 3D multiplanar reformatting. WARP5 offers a comprehensive suite of techniques including Advanced WARP1 to provide susceptibility artifact reduction functionality (such as from MR conditional metal implants).
The Cardiac Suite covers comprehensive 2D routine cardiac applications, ranging from morphology and ventricular function to tissue characterization. And the new MyoMaps1 functionality provides you an additional layer of valuable diagnostic information about even subtle changes in tissue composition - on the fly. Dot’s on-board guidance helps you to make cardiac part of your clinical routine. The Cardiac Dot Engine helps eliminate one of the biggest challenges in cardiac MRI simplifying complete cardiac localization with AutoAlign Heart.

From clinical imaging to biopsy guidance, MAGNETOM Aera offers a wide selection of breast coils and enables outstanding image quality. Additionally, the 70 cm Open Bore of MAGNETOM Aera makes it possible to comfortably accommodate more patients. Excellent soft tissue differentiation, customized protocols (e.g. with fat saturation or water excitation or silicone excitation), as well as flexible multiplanar visualization allow for fast, simple, and reproducible evaluation of MRI breast examinations. The Breast Dot Engine offers different workflows for optimized image quality and consistency.
With the combination of the high-density spine and body matrix coils alone or in combination with an endorectal coil, MAGNETOM Aera enables excellent multiparametric imaging of the prostate in terms of morphology, physiology, and function. Together with dedicated solutions for reading and reporting, the workflow for prostate MRI is comprehensively covered.

5The 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.
