Siemens re­ceives CE mark for mag­netic res­o­nance scanner

BioSpectrum (India) - - COMPANY NEWS -

Siemens Health­i­neers has re­ceived CE-Mark for its ul­tra-high-field 7T mag­netic res­o­nance (MR) scanner Mag­ne­tom Terra, mak­ing it avail­able for neu­ro­log­i­cal and mus­cu­loskele­tal clin­i­cal ex­am­i­na­tions in Europe. In ad­di­tion to de­tailed in­sights of the mus­cu­loskele­tal sys­tem, Mag­ne­tom Terra’s high spa­tial and spec­tral res­o­lu­tion en­ables imag­ing of meta­bolic pro­cesses in the brain, as well as vi­su­al­i­sa­tion of neu­ro­log­i­cal dis­eases such as Alzheimer's, epilepsy, and mul­ti­ple scle­ro­sis (MS). It is ex­pected that the high-res­o­lu­tion of the scanner will pro­vide clear pic­tures of brain le­sions, in­clud­ing bet­ter white and gray mat­ter dif­fer­en­ti­a­tion in epilepsy and im­proved vis­i­bil­ity in gray mat­ter in mul­ti­ple scle­ro­sis. Use of the new MR scanner will en­able anatom­i­cal imag­ing of small patholo­gies and sub­cor­ti­cal brain ac­ti­va­tion, while it will also aid the as­sess­ment of anatomy, func­tion and me­tab­o­lism of body tis­sue.
