Free-breathing applications with Inline Compressed Sensing (available in Turbo Suite Elite)

Many kids, the elderly, or critically ill patients may be unable to maintain their breath long enough to undergo a liver examination with dynamic contrast enhancement or an entire cardiac examination.

Compressed Sensing heralds a paradigm shift in cardiac and body imaging therapeutic practice.

Expand the MR patient population eligible for MRI with Compressed Sensing GRASP-VIBE for free-breathing liver dynamics for patients with limited or no breath-hold capability and with Compressed Sensing Cardiac Cine for full free-breathing cardiac exams.

BioMatrix Sensors — Anticipate motion for high-quality results

BioMatrix Sensors, fully incorporated into the system architecture, capture respiratory and cardiac3 motion, improving consistency and freeing up the user to choose the optimal exam approach. This pairing guarantee high-quality outcomes.

BioMatrix Tuners with CoilShim and SliceAdjust technology

Patient anatomy has physical implications in MRI, like distortion of field homogeneity, which leads to poor image quality.

BioMatrix Tuners use CoilShim and SliceAdjust technology to adjust to difficult anatomical locations, resulting in resilience and reproducible, high-quality imaging for all patients.

As a result of the dramatically improved fat saturation and DWI quality in the head/neck area, CoilShim technology helps prevent repeat scans.

SliceAdjust produces high-quality DWI images, avoiding broken spine artifacts and delivering great correlation to anatomical scans. SliceAdjust also improves fat saturation quality over the full imaging volume in multi-concat TSE exams.

BioMatrix Interfaces, touch panels for easy and fast patient positioning

With one-touch on the new Select&GO display, patients can be positioned 30% faster2 with reproducible accuracy, all based on the underlying BioMatrix Body Model. Select the region or organ to be scanned for reliable patient positioning with one touch.

Embrace full 3T performance with unparalleled magnet and gradient power

High-performance clinical MRI is synonymous with 3T MRI. The expectation with 3T MRI is to push and redefine the limits of what is achievable in diagnostic imaging.

An all-new 3T magnet

The new 3T magnet in MAGNETOM Vida delivers outstanding uniformity throughout the whole measurement volume and a broad Field-of-View of 55 × 55 × 50 cm3. As a result, examinations are completed quickly and with robust and consistent fat saturation throughout the whole imaging volume, which is especially significant in abdominal or off-center applications.

A new level of gradient power

MAGNETOM Vida provides MR research power in a patient-friendly 70 cm configuration, with gradient strengths of up to 60/200 concurrently for up to 25% greater SNR in diffusion-weighted imaging.

Cost-efficient energy management

During the breaks between scans, efficient power management disables power-consuming components — EcoPower turns off the cold head in standby, saving up to 30% more energy than the industry average (COCIR average of MRI vendors).

Embrace true 3T productivity with Turbo Suite and myExam Companion

The MAGNETOM Vida embraces genuine 3T productivity, making quick scan times and push-button examinations clinical realities. The proprietary Turbo Suite is at the heart of its exceptional acquisition speed: Disruptive acceleration technologies (e.g., Simultaneous Multi-Slice and Compressed Sensing) shorten clinical MRI tests across the board while maintaining exam quality.

myExam Companion breaks down the obstacles of complex MRI operations by employing a new MRI operating philosophy.

Guided processes are available in myExam Assist. Users can choose exam strategies or change them flexibly, dependent on the patient's condition. This allows for high-quality, efficient examinations even when conditions alter.

Users can personalize myExam Cockpit in an intuitive manner. It serves as a central hub for protocol management. Users can create and manage procedures, incorporate information into standardized exams, and make those exams available to all MRI department users on a continuous basis.

GO Technologies is a suite of tools that accelerates the entire examination workflow, from patient location to result distribution.

Deep Resolve—Faster than ever before

Deep Resolve is an AI-powered image reconstruction system that uses convolutional neural networks to expedite MR scans, making them faster than ever before. Faster scans increase workflow efficiency while boosting patient satisfaction.

Deep Resolve’s raw data-to-image reconstruction and extremely quick acquisition are game changers in MRI, allowing for the generation of actionable insights that can be diagnostically useful. In a secure digital environment, an open interface is intended to foster cooperation and co-creation. Deep Resolve technology is one step closer to creating a healthy world for all.
