Healthcare providers worldwide are under increasing pressure to manage two contradictory forces: delivering highest-quality care with ever decreasing financial means. The number of MRI scans continues to rise, as MRI continues to prove its diagnostic value and expands growing clinical fields1. At the same time, global reimbursements continue to fall. MAGNETOM Skyra is 3T MRI designed to turn these challenges into opportunities.
*Field of view measures 50 cm, allowing clinicians to cover more anatomy in fewer scans.
*Optics RF provides signal digitization, increasing signal clarity and maximizing signal intensity for cleaner, clearer images.
*High-fidelity gradients help to facilitate outstanding performance in demanding applications including fMRI, cardiac, diffusion, and FIESTA.
*Strong whole-body gradients deliver 34 mT/m amplitude and 150 T/m/s slew rate on each axis, yielding scans that are fast, accurate, and highly reproducible.
*Acoustic Reduction Technology (ART) reduces acoustic noise for brain, spine, and MSK exams without compromising image quality.
*Magnet measures 145 cm long, is designed to ensure uniform tissue contrast.
*Express detachable table is easily docked and undocked by a single technologist, helps to improve workflow and efficiency by minimizing time between scans.
*Table can support patients up to 500 pounds.
*In-room operator console is mounted conveniently in front of the magnet.
*Touchscreen operator console integrates patient setup information and operator controls in one convenient place.
