Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

  • low-dose lung CT scan

    The term mesothelioma was coined in 1909, just a few years after the introduction of medical X-ray imaging. The term was developed after thousands of autopsies, numerous discoveries and significant research linked asbestos to a deadly form of cancer.

  • The Pharmacovigilance Risk Assessment Committee (PRAC) of the European Medicines Agency recently released new recommendations on procedures employing gadolinium-based contrast agents, in which the committee recommended suspension of marketing authorization for four agents.

  • The SIGNA Architect delivers a digitized 128-channel RF chain to increase SNR in MSK imaging. The large, homogeneous FOV in a 70 cm wide bore allows visualization of any type of MSK anatomy, even the smallest lesions in the most challenging areas of the body.

  • Over 30 years of innovation delivers our most advanced MR system ever, the SIGNA Architect. Fueled by the SIGNAWorks productivity platform, this novel technology delivers greater speed, acuity and consistency than ever thought possible. 

  • Magnetom Vida, the new high-end 3 Tesla magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner with BioMatrix technology from Siemens Healthineers, was launched to the public at University Hospital Tübingen, Germany, where the first system is installed. It has been undergoing clinical tests in the hospital’s...
