A Magnetic Presence: Siemens New MRI Systems Pulling More Patients Toward the Benefits of MR Imaging
Date:11/20/2007

//www.winanmri.com. The program invites healthcare facilities with 180 beds or less that currently do not have a fixed MRI system to display their creativity and dedication to patient care by stating a two-minute case in short videos that prove why they should receive a free, new Essenza MRI from Siemens. Individuals from across the country can view the videos on the Web site and choose which facility they believe is most deserving of the MRI system. The facility whose video receives the most votes will be awarded a brand new MAGNETOM Essenza. Voting for this contest will close on Dec. 31, with the winner being announced in mid January.

Due to the system's 70-cm bore diameter, the average distance between a patient's eyes and the magnet is 30 cm, greatly alleviating concerns of claustrophobia in many patients. In addition, the wider space makes it possible to scan patients who could not be examined with the MRI system in the past, including those suffering from kyphosis (limited mobility) or those who are in pain, as well as pediatric and obese patients up to 550 pounds, those who are dependent on medical devices, those who are in intensive care, and those having to undergo intraoperative procedures.
