MAGNETOM Amira with BioMatrix technology is our new 1.5T scanner that helps you differentiate your institution by delivering high-quality imaging even with complex variables – no matter what. Based on BioMatrix and the new syngo MR XA platform and equipped with our latest applications the system truly transforms the way you deliver care to your patients, enabling reproducible high-quality results you can count on – no matter what.

Features & Benefits

Count on consistent quality with BioMatrix and DotGO

Each patient is unique. And patient variability and movement can make acquiring a diagnostic MR image difficult. Inconsistency among operators can further affect quality. Having to rescan patients after a failed scan not only impacts patient satisfaction, it also adds to your costs. With BioMatrix technology and DotGO, you can count on MAGNETOM Amira to give you reliably consistent quality by capturing respiratory motion, adapting to challenging body regions for excellent homogeneity, and decreasing acquisition time.

Count on financial certainty productivity-boosting technologies

Finding a way to reconcile productivity improvements and cost savings while providing high-quality care is a major challenge in today’s healthcare industry. Overwhelming workloads and operating costs can drive down profits from your MR operations. MAGNETOM Amira with BioMatrix provides financial security by increasing patient throughput and delivering high-quality results with Simultaneous Multi-Slice and GO applications – also available with the new Turbo Suite packages. In addition, Eco-Power reduces energy consumption by up to 30%2 when the system is in stand-by mode.

Count on new clinical opportunities with free-breathing applications

To set yourself apart as a healthcare provider, you want to differentiate your institution through unique MRI services to attract more patients and referrers. MAGNETOM Amira with BioMatrix opens up new clinical capabilities that increase patient access to advanced MRI exams. Compressed Sensing provides a better patient experience by enabling free-breathing body and cardiac examinations – thereby transforming care delivery.
