Collaborate and succeed

In MRI research, there are two forces driving the future of healthcare: As a physician, you aspire to transfer ideas from the lab into the clinical routine. Here at Siemens, we strive to translate research results into products like the MAGNETOM Prisma. This shared impulse is basis for a solid partnership founded on collaboration, support, and trust.

Network and benefit
With MAGNETOM Prisma, we offer Dot. 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.

Be part of the IDEA network

As part of IDEA (Integrated Development Environment for Applications), the world’s largest and most active research community, you are able to get in touch with like-minded people, discuss ideas, and easily benefit from in-depth exchanges.

  • Open development platform supporting the world’s largest and most active 3T MR research and development community
  • Yearly IDEA users’ meeting at the ISMRM
  • Yearly international IDEA courses at multiple locations worldwide

MAGNETOM Prisma equips you with the needed competitive edge – the edge that enables you to do what others can’t. It might even facilitate access to research funding and could make your institution more attractive to top talents on the international academic market.

“MAGNETOM Prisma has the power to lead to better expertise and innovative research in the future. Beside the improved gradient system, the 64-ch Head/Neck coil allows us to get better signals from the cortex and also cover the cerebellum and the neck very well. That allows exploring new research fields which are difficult to do on other 3T scanners.”1
