Dot. The next movement in MRI.

Dot is a new way of scanning in MRI – a better way. Dot scanning uses a suite of customizable engines. Allowing the user to personalize exams according to patient needs, build in step-by-step user guidance, and automate MRI exams – either "out of the box" or based on the institution's standards.


Dot. Taking the complexity out of MRI.

  • Manage even complex exam routines with ease
  • Use pre-defined exam strategies (Dot protocols)
  • Easily adapt exam strategies to patient specific condition
  • Be guided step-by-step, even through complicated exams
  • Easy and synchronized timing with Auto Bolus Detection

Dot. A new level of consistency and reproducibility.

  • Intelligent, automated workflows for image consistency and diagnostic confidence
  • Complete scans with virtually no manual adjustments, enabling high reproducibility
  • Workflows customizable to your standards
  • Easy, consistent follow-up exams, supported by automatic slice positioning & FoV estimation

Intelligent, automated workflows enable a whole new level of efficiency

  • Fast scan setup with only a few clicks, supported e.g. by an automated FoV or navigator positioning
  • Automated post-processing with automatic, predefined inline technologies
  • Higher reproducibility and more accurate timing, reducing the need of scan repetitions

"At the moment we have nine MAGNETOM ESSENZA installed in our sites, and we can smoothly do more than 800 exams a month per machine."1

Tim sets the standard in MRI.

The integrated coil technology Tim (Total imaging matrix) is synonymous with excellent image quality and fast acquisition speed. The proven technology is now in nearly 8,000 installations.

Your benefits comprise exceptional image quality, faster acquisition, shorter exam time, and higher SNR.



  • Select exams, not coils
  • 8 or 16 RF channels for up to 46 matrix coil elements
  • Head-to-toe imaging without patient repositioning


  • Local and total imaging from head to toe, while maintaining a high SNR
  • Excellent image quality with high coil density
  • Seamless scan range of up to 140 cm with excellent image quality


  • Utilize parallel imaging (iPAT) in all directions
  • High acquisition speed, high resolution
  • Shorter examination times allow increased throughput

Together. Tim+Dot redifine productivity - with an increase of up to 50%2.

Extended productivity at 16-channels.

Up to 4 coils simultaneously, up to 46 elements. The new 16-channel system with the new 16-channel Head/Neck coil enables more flexibility and higher productivity.

Higher flexibility

  • Seamless combination of up to 4 Matrix coils with up to 46 coil elements
  • More coverage with the integrated IsoCenter Matrix, 16-channel Head/Neck coil and up to two Body Matrix coils
  • Easier coil handling with combined Head/Neck parts and comfortable release mechanism
  • Keep the posterior part of the 16-Channel Head/Neck on the patient table for any abdominal exam 

Upgraded imaging and iPAT performance

  • Twice the number of elements (12 instead of 6) in the head region for improved GRAPPA performance
  • Higher performance in abdominal imaging with IsoCenter Matrix and up to 2 Body matrix coils
  • Access to the optional 14-ch Extremity coil3 for advanced iPAT capabilities in any direction and improved B1 performance with iTX

More confidence

  • Outstanding SNR with the 16-ch Head/Neck coil
  • Complete coverage of the Head/Neck region
  • Excellent image quality, in combination with the integrated IsoCenter Matrix coil, for example in C-Spine imaging 

More applications. From head to toe.

MAGNETOM ESSENZA delivers outstanding image quality from head to toe. Now based on the latest Siemens MR software platform, MAGNETOM ESSENZA provides access to more standard and advanced applications than ever before.

The complete range of clinical application. With the Tim Application Suite.
Neurology, Orthopedics, Cardiology, Angiography, Womens' Health, Pediatric

“The acquisition of MAGNETOM ESSENZA was a great choice, because it surpassed all our expectations, attending the hospitals diversified needs."1
Dr. Cristiano Rezio, MD
Radiologist, Administrative Director
Clínica De Diagnostico, Por Imagem Avançado Goiânia, GO, Brazil

Broaden your clinical scope. With the new MAGNETOM ESSENZA – A Tim+Dot system, you also have access to advanced, cutting-edge applications like:

  • CAIPIRINHA: The powerful next generation iPAT application for up to 50%2 faster imaging.
  • syngo BLADE: Robust, motion-insensitive imaging for excellent imaging results even for non-cooperative patients, can be used in head, spine, abdomen, and other body regions.
  • 3D DESS: T2/T1- weighted, high resolution cartilage imaging.
  • 3D CISS: Excellent visualization of fine structures such as cranial nerve, high resolution imaging of inner ear and spine.
  • Inline Diffusion: Automatic real-time calculation of trace-weighted images and ADC maps with Inline Technology for stoke imaging and tumor differentiation in head and body applications.

"The MSK examinations, with the Blade sequence, are of very good quality since motion artifacts are reduced. This same BLADE sequence and the 3D isotropic SPACE sequence offer high resolution and well contrasted pelvic and prostate images. In neurology, the results are of very good quality in totally correct acquisition times."1
