The clever spin on 1.5T
When it comes to clinical capabilities, MAGNETOM Amira1 provides a comprehensive application portfolio as standard. Its trendsetting innovations are designed to help you achieve better outcomes for patients and meet the increasing demands in clinical healthcare. Combined with Tim 4G and DotGO, this application portfolio brings even the most complex exams into your clinical routine.
Experience high resolution and benefit from fast protocols and quieter exams for uncooperative patients. Your MAGNETOM Amira’s Neuro Suite includes advanced protocols for diffusion imaging, perfusion imaging, and fMRI. And the Brain Dot Engine helps increase consistency, even when conditions change during the course of the examination.
With Ortho Suite comes a comprehensive collection of protocols for joint imaging including the spine. Tim 4G’s ultra high-density coils for MSK imaging improve SNR and anatomic coverage. Dot’s customizable workflows feature AutoAlign and AutoCoverage for knee, hip, and shoulder and MPR planning for fast 3D measurements and Inline 3D multiplanar reformatting. WARP4 offers a comprehensive suite of techniques to provide susceptibility artifact reduction functionality.
The new certainty in Body MRI: FREEZEit helps you overcome motion and opens up many diagnostic possibilities. With the Abdomen Dot Engine, standardized, efficient, and comprehensive workflows for the upper abdomen with excellent image quality are provided. And with LiverLab you can perform quantitative liver evaluation, non-invasively, on the fly.
The Cardiac Suite covers comprehensive 2D routine cardiac applications, ranging from morphology and ventricular function to tissue characterization. MyoMaps1 provides an additional layer of valuable diagnostic information about even subtle changes in tissue composition – on the fly. Dot’s on-board guidance helps make cardiac part of your clinical routine. The Cardiac Dot Engine simplifies complete cardiac localization with AutoAlign Heart.
With the Angio Suite, excellent MR Angiography can be performed to visualize arteries and veins with or without contrast agent. For scans with contrast media, the Angio Dot Engine helps realize optimized bolus timing at every examination. Real-time graphics and AutoVoice Commands assist the user in organizing the ideal timing of breathing, scanning, and contrast media.
From clinical imaging to biopsy guidance, MAGNETOM Amira offers a wide selection of breast coils and enables outstanding image quality. Excellent soft tissue differentiation, customized protocols, as well as flexible multiplanar visualization allow for fast, simple, and reproducible evaluation of MRI breast examinations. The Breast Dot Engine offers different workflows for optimized image quality and consistency.
With the combination of the high-density spine and body matrix coils alone MAGNETOM Amira enables excellent multiparametric imaging of the prostate in terms of morphology, physiology, and function. Together with dedicated solutions for reading and reporting, the workflow for prostate MRI is comprehensively covered.
Tissue relaxation times in pediatrics2 are very different compared to those of adults. The reasons for these differences are: developing tissues, body size, faster heart rates, and compliance with breathhold commands. With MAGENTOM Amira, protocols are available to be adapted for imaging infants.
MAGNETOM Amira’s Onco Suite features a collection of sequences, protocols, and evaluation tools that guide users through the detailed assessment of a variety of oncological conditions. Together with Dot’s on-board guidance, this innovative technology improves patient throughput and provides superb image quality.
1The product is currently under development; it is not for sale in the U.S. and other countries. Its 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.
