"Siemens is helping to break down barriers and opening up access to MR imaging," said Walter Marzendorfer, president, Siemens Medical Solutions, MR Division. "Our technologies provide solutions for providers and patients that address everything from workflow improvement to the cost of technology to medical conditions that previously hindered MR imaging for those who needed it most."
MAGNETOM Essenza, the Most Affordable, All-New 1.5T MRI
Siemens recently introduced the groundbreaking 1.5T MAGNETOM Essenza, an MRI system that can be as much as $500,000 less than other, new 1.5T systems.* The system offers innovative technologies that support a facility's clinical and financial success. In addition to the low initial investment, savings of up to 25 percent can also be attained on installation costs for space, power requirements and construction.* In part, this is due to the magnet's light weight of only 3.5 tons. This gives a facility more installation options as the magnet can be installed on higher floors. Furthermore, the MAGNETOM Essenza has a short length of only 145 cm, which is the second shortest system length offered by Siemens. If the system is replacing an existing MRI, it can reduce energy consumption by up to 50 percent thanks to its high-performance electronics.* The magnet also has zero helium boil-off so there is no need to regularly refill the expensive cooling substance, and the system is always ready for operation.
With powerful 30 mT/m gradients, the Essenza delivers excellent image quality for all clinical applications. Another innovation on the Essenza is the IsoCenter Matrix coil, which is installed at the center of the magnet, so it is always in the correct position, providing a simple workflow solution that leads to outstanding image quality.
