Nuada Medical, an independent imaging services provider based in London, has installed a MAGNETOM Verio 3 Tesla MRI system to offer highly detailed diagnostic imaging to its patients.
The Verio is a high performance MRI combining a range of innovative features, including a 70cm Open Bore design and 32 channel Tim (Total imaging matrix) technology. With the same footprint as a 1.5 Tesla system, the Verio provides the considerable benefits of 3T field strength to the clinical environment in a patient friendly package.
Routine neurology, oncology and musculoskeletal imaging needs are catered for by the system. Other complex MR methods such as diffusion, perfusion and spectroscopy are also being employed. The system’s Tim technology provides an unprecedented level of flexibility, accuracy and speed. With more options for coil combinations, Tim technology helps to reduce examination times by up to 50 per cent, creating a more streamlined imaging process.
“The Verio is a fabulous scanner that has enabled us to offer more complex imaging and work with a stunning new level of detail,” said St John Brown, Chief Executive at Nuada Medical.
“The full range of syngo software applications selected has allowed us to maximise our use of the equipment. We can also offer patients the best quality, most comfortable examinations due to the system’s design.”
“With the addition of this top-of-the-range system, Nuada Medical sited in Queen Anne Street will be able to offer patients the very best quality diagnostic service with wide bore comfort for the patients,” said Gary Cook, Regional Sales Manager at Siemens Healthcare.
“A comprehensive team of experts from healthcare management will help to make best use of the innovative technology on site. The system’s ease-of-use and small footprint enable the considerable 3 Tesla imaging benefits to be enjoyed by the clinical and research environment alike.
