Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

This is the future of MRI: The Siemens Magnetom Avanto with revolutionary Total Imaging Matrix (TIM) technology. This next-generation MRI technology provides superb
MR imaging to reveal a new dimension of details, while dramatically improving patient experiences with greater speed (up to 50% faster), quiet and comfort.

It also enables 3-D bilateral breast imaging for excellent diagnostic capabilities in breast disease.

The Magnetom Avanto provides revolutionary comfort for patients:

  • Short-bore design enhances patient experience
  • Significantly quieter – up to 97% noise reduction
  • Feet-first exams for nearly all exams
  • Ultra-light weight coils
  • No patient or coil repositioning needed

Understanding the basics of MRI.

MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) is a noninvasive way for your doctor to examine your organs, tissues and skeletal system. It uses a magnetic field and radio waves to create detailed images of the organs and tissues within your body.

Most MRI machines are large, tube-shaped magnets. When you lie inside an MRI machine, the magnetic field temporarily aligns all the water molecules in your body. Radio waves cause these aligned particles to produce very faint signals, which are used to create cross-sectional MRI images — like slices in a loaf of bread.

The MRI machine can combine these slices to produce 3-D images that may be viewed from many different angles.
