Moving the needle in MRI productivity

productivity patients time period

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.

Up to 50%² faster image acquisitionFaster postprocessingUp to 30%² faster patient preparation
  1. Turbo Suite Excelerate
    Turbo Suite reduces scan times by up to 50%2 using MR acceleration techniques such as Simultaneous Multi-Slice and Compressed Sensing. These technologies cover all contrasts, orientations, static, and dynamic imaging without compromising image quality.
    The MR-Injector coupling via Imaging System Interface (ISI)4 is a joint development by Bayer and Siemens Healthineers. It is designed to substantially simplify synchronized contrast injection and scanning by guiding the user through an intuitive workflow with clicks and interactions reduced to the essence. The MR-Injector coupling via Imaging System Interface is planned to control everything with a few clicks from the MR console instead of requiring multiple, time-critical interactions on different consoles.

    GO applications are push-button, high-resolution exams that deliver reliable image quality in 5 to 12 minutes2 for the brain, knee, and abdomen. The protocols are clinically validated to maximize MRI scanner productivity while improving patient care.
    Dot Engines use standardized protocols to achieve consistent and efficient scan results across the entire MR fleet. In addition, the technologist benefits from 46%2 fewer parameter adjustments and 45%2 fewer tasks.
    syngo Virtual Cockpit3 is designed to provide remote assistance for MR exams. Experts are granted access to the MRI scanner and can support less experienced technologists from another location, ensuring reproducible results across the entire MR fleet.
    Deep Resolve brings deep learning and AI to the MR image reconstruction process. Scans can be faster, boosting workflow efficiency while improving patient comfort.
  2. Label Map
    AI-Rad Companion is an AI-powered radiology assistant that supports the radiologist by performing automatic measurements and preparing the results in the form of valuable clinical images and quantifications for MR Brain and Prostate.
    Spine
    Recon&GO and View&GO allow faster postprocessing and image QA. Recon&GO features Inline reconstruction and postprocessing of image data, resulting in zero clicks and four minutes saved per spine exam for vertebrae labeling in all planes, contrasts, slices, and orientations. MR View&GO simplifies image review and analysis, and fully automates distribution of all relevant results to the PACS.
  3. The BioMatrix Dockable Table with eDrive allows the technologist to set up the patient on the table while another patient is being scanned. What is more, the motorized assistance helps move even the largest patient to and from the MRI scanner. As a result, NYU reduced their turnaround time from >7 to <2 minutes2.
    The BioMatrix Respiratory Sensor anticipates motion and dispenses with the need to apply a respiratory belt, resulting in faster and more comfortable patient setup.
    Ultra-light-weight and anatomy-adaptive coils that raise the patient's comfort level can be positioned faster while achieving high-quality images.
    BioMatrix Select&GO allows the technologist to position the patient correctly with one touch. Thanks to the AI-powered body model, repositioning delays and the need for laser guidance can be avoided, resulting in 30%2 faster patient positioning.

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.


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.
