Providing the power of 1.5 Tesla image quality with more applications and enhanced patient comfort, Bowes Imaging Center is now experiencing the best of both worlds with the installation of Siemens Medical Solutions new MAGNETOM® ESSENZA MRI.
We needed flexibility, accuracy, and speed, and found it all in the MAGNETOM ESSENZA from Siemens. With the MAGNETOM ESSENZA, Siemens has delivered a system that gives our physicians the clinical information they need to provide our patients with the highest quality of care.
Due to its 1.5T field strength, the MAGNETOM ESSENZA allows BIC to deliver outstanding image quality that supports a complete range of clinical applications, including neurology, orthopedics, body imaging, angiography, cardiology, breast imaging, oncology and pediatric imaging.
The revolutionary, Tim™ (Total imaging matrix) technology, increases throughput with the combination of up to four matrix coils which makes patient repositioning virtually unnecessary. This advancement results in workflow improvements that can lead to reduced exam times. For example, clinicians at Bowes Imaging Center can now perform a whole central nervous system exam in less than 10 minutes. Additionally, the system’s ultra-short bore will alleviate concerns of claustrophobia since many patients can be imaged with their head outside of the bore.
