Siemens Healthineers moves into new clinical fields with small and lightweight whole body MRI

Currently under development, the Magnetom Free.Max presents a new class of MRI systems that Siemens Healthineers calls ‘High-V MRI’. The scanner’s combination of digital technologies and a field strength of 0.55T broadens the range of clinical applications for MRI systems.

“Magnetom Free.Max considerably improves pulmonary imaging with MRI and allows patients with implants to be scanned much more accurately,” the company states. The bore size has been enlarged to 80cm, making the experience more comfortable for patients. Siemens says this opening is the biggest whole body MRI bore available on the market.

“Thanks to innovative digital solutions such as Deep Resolve, Magnetom Free.Max can deliver image quality that used to be possible only at higher field strengths,” said MR business manager for Siemens Healthineers GB&I Alistair Piggot. “Deep Resolve uses neural networks to generate high resolution images from a lower input signal, which provides excellent diagnostic images and speeds up the scanning process.”
