MAGNETOM Vida – the first 3T MRI scanner with BioMatrix Technology – embraces human nature and the unique set of challenges that each patient brings to the MRI exam. By embracing these challenges, we overcome patient variability – ushering in a paradigm shift in MRI. The outcome: fewer rescans, predictable scheduling and consistent, high-quality personalized exams for high-end clinical routine as well as clinical research.
MAGNETOM Vida, the first MRI scanner with BioMatrix Technology, embraces human nature at 3T. In addition to the revolutionary technology, MAGNETOM Vida has an all-new magnet and system architecture as well as various revolutionary features to serve the increasing demands in high-end clinical imaging and in clinical research.
To meet the increasing demands in healthcare, MAGNETOM Vida’s broad application portfolio offers versatility to provide excellence in daily clinical practice and to expand the patient population eligible for MRI. The new BioMatrix Technology, building on the strong foundation of Total imaging matrix (Tim), provides high consistency by adapting to individual patient characteristics. A new Compressed Sensing application enables free-breathing cardiac imaging.
MAGNETOM Vida achieves new levels of 3T performance with a completely new magnet and system architecture to support the clinical, operational, and financial requirements facing MRI today.
