Life Design is the Siemens MRI design philosophy. Since the beginning, the guiding principle in our MRI development has been to design our systems around the life of you and your patients. Our goal: to achieve highest level of patient friendliness, most efficient workflow, lowest siting requirements and lowest operational costs possible.
Maximized patient comfort
Life Design leads to maximized patient comfort. Making the MRI experience more pleasant, allowing you to serve more patients. Especially those who were previously too anxiety-stricken to receive an MRI exam.
Open MRI - As the first company to design and introduce a 70 cm Open Bore MRI, we put the patient first by providing 30 cm of space above the patient’s face. This helps you accommodate a large variety of patient sizes, shapes and conditions.
The shortest magnets in the industry enable more exams to be done with the head outside of the magnet.
FREEZEit1 - Make MRI easier accessible for children2, elderly patients or very sick people. Perform free-breathing contrast enhanced liver imaging with StarVIBE1.
Increase patient satisfaction with complete quiet orthopedic and neurological examinations. With Quiet Suite1. Because imaging is to be seen, not heard.
More workflow efficiency
Our systems have the most ergonomic system handling. Meaningful design elements help you to cope with today’s challenges of cost and time pressure, while at the same time the demand for better patient care.
Tim Dockable Table helps you to speed up and ease exam preparation, optimizing your departmental workflow.
One common syngo user interface allows maximizing staff efficiency by providing a common look and feel at every scanner.
Minimized siting requirements
Life Design saves you money from the time of installation. The modern and compact design permits easy and efficient Installation and optimizes costs, while remaining environmentally friendly.
Minimum siting requirements require very little of your expensive floor space.
Resources are increasingly scarce, with Life Design and its Zero Helium boil-off, low power requirements and cooling demands are standard.
1May not be commercially available in countries outside the U.S., future availability cannot be guaranteed.
2The safety of imaging infants under two years of age has not been established. The responsible physician must evaluate the benefits of the MR examination compared to those of other imaging procedures.
