Siemens Holds Contest for Free MRI System

October 24, 2007 - Siemens Medical Solutions announced the opening of voting for a national contest to win a free MRI, inviting healthcare facilities lacking an MRI system to display their creativity and dedication to patient care in videos that are two minutes long or shorter, posted on www.winanmri.com.

Individuals from across the country can view the contenders’ videos on the site and then choose which facility they believe is most deserving of the MRI system by voting for their favorite. The healthcare facility whose video receives the most votes will be awarded a brand new Siemens MAGNETOM Essenza scanner.

The MAGNETOM Essenza MRI system was introduced to the market on Oct. 17, 2007. The system, which was developed specifically for the small hospital market, is expected to help physicians deliver improved imaging services in neurology, orthopedics, body imaging, angiography, cardiology, breast imaging, oncology and pediatric imaging. The new system encompasses a1.5-Tesla magnet strength andgenerates high-resolution images that will reportedly help clinicians make a more precise diagnosis and could eliminate the need for expensive and time-consuming follow-up exams.

Voting in this contest will run from Oct. 22 through December 31, 2007, with the winner being announced in mid January.
