Experience freedom with AIR Technology

When we set out to build the MR of the future, one thing was certain, we knew we needed to revolutionize the patient-coil experience. We started this journey with SIGNA Premier. Drawing inspiration from the interactions and objects that bring us comfort in our daily lives, we realized that to a patient, the experience of wearing coils is similar to the experience of being covered with a blanket. This realization led us to develop the innovative AIR Technology. A revolutionary, lightweight coil design that comfortably conforms to a patient’s body. It’s also less cumbersome for technologists to position and has the high density channel count radiologists rely on for image quality.

    ImageWorks boosts your overall MR performance. READYView visualization and MAGiC one-and-done scanning help ensure consistent and clear results.

    The secret of MAGiC lies in its unique ability to make possible multiple image contrasts in a single scan. MAGiC delivers enhanced clinical flexibility by freeing up time for advanced imaging. MAGiC goes beyond the routine, providing complementary parametric data for a more complete picture. Image contrast can be changed by applying simple adjustments after acquisition.

    With READYView being directly available on the MR Operator console, it accelerates workflow and reading readiness by eliminating time consuming post processing steps.

    cmr42 is a comprehensive cardiovascular post processing solution that uses automated algorithms to assess tissue charaterization, mapping, flow and function.

Diffusion imaging has never been so intelligent

As a standard biomarker in oncology, diffusion imaging plays a critical role in cancer detection and staging. However, because certain anatomical regions are prone to large distortions that limit resolution, the current standard for diffusion imaging has its limitations. SIGNA Premier uses intelligent quantitative solutions and an advanced diffusion package to automatically detect and correct distortion, artifacts and motion. The result is improved co-registration with anatomical information, improved visualization of structures in difficult-to-image areas and higher resolution without any restrictions. This is achieved without any user intervention, additional scan time or complicated workflow.
