Siemens Healthineers kicked-off RSNA announcements season with its Shape 23 event, highlighted by a pair of forthcoming MRIs that should serve as the cornerstones of its high-end lineup for years to come.
Magnetom Cima.X – Siemens reinforced its already-solid 3T MR lineup with its new Magnetom Cima.X, calling it the company’s “strongest 3T MRI system ever.”
The Magnetom Cima.X owes that “strongest 3T” title to its new Gemini Gradients, which achieve 200 mT/m amplitude and 200 T/m/s slew rate performance. That’s a 2.5x increase from Siemens’ previous 3T MRIs and it’s higher than any other clinically released whole-body MRI.
The Magnetom Cima.X also features Siemens Healthineers’ …
- Benchmark 3T magnet
- Deep Resolve AI image reconstruction for up to 50% faster scans
- Open Recon for integrating custom reconstruction and post-processing solutions
- BioMatrix Technology to automatically adjust exams based on patient biovariability
- myExam Companion for streamlining technologist workflows
Magnetom Terra.X – Siemens’ new Magnetom Terra.X 7T MR is the long-awaited successor to the Magnetom Terra (the first FDA-cleared 7T MR), bringing improved clinical and research performance. The Magnetom Terra.X leverages Siemens’ new Ultra IQ Technology to achieve even greater image quality and visualization of small structures, Deep Resolve for image reconstruction-based speed and image enhancements, and Open Recon to support custom reconstructions.
Although both MRIs are still under development, their starring role in Siemens Healthineers’ big RSNA event underscores their significance to Siemens’ high-end MRI lineup, and gives a glimpse of features to expect in future 1.5T and 3T MR launches. That’s especially notable given that Siemens’ last two RSNA announcements focused on its new low-field 0.55T MRIs, and it hasn’t launched any high-field systems in over three years.
