The MAGNETOM Avanto 1.5 Tesla MRI Scanner
with Tim technology by Siemens Healthcare provides a new level of seamless image quality with unprecedented acquisition speed and ease of use. The heart of the MRI Scanner is the magnet, and the MAGNETOM Avanto has the best-in-class magnet homogeneity which results in excellent image quality. With the MAGNETOM Avanto head-to-toe imaging in a very short time has come into routine clinical issue owing to its powerful hardware and software. The entire system is an engineering marvel harboring an ergonomically designed table, gantry and hardware and software that is designed to ensure the Audio Comfort of the patient by minimizing the sound levels. This makes the scan very comfortable for the patient and helps achieve excellent patient compliance. It is fully loaded with the neuro, ortho, cardiac, onco, body, angio, paediatric and breast suites which ensures uninterrupted workflow empowering the user to handle all applications. The new syngo Blade sequence is extremely useful in minimizing motion induced artifacts in very sick patients.
Apart from this some advanced applications such as the following, help the specialists diagnose critical cases.
syngo SWI – A Siemens unique software which can diagnose micro-bleeds (diffuse axonal injury) and hemorrhagic transformation of stroke. The phase information is useful for detection of occult vascular disease (cavernomas, angiomas, and telangiectasias), cerebral venous thrombosis, intra-arterial clot detection and other mineral deposition. SWI is a very significant tool for diagnosing neurodegenerative diseases (Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, etc.) and to characterize tumors.
syngo BOLD: is a comprehensive processing and visualization package for functional MRI studies. This allows the visualization of important brain centers, which control our activities, and the spatial relationship of these with normal anatomy or brain lesions. fMRI studies are helpful in neurosurgical planning, to assess the effects of neurodegenerative diseases, trauma or stroke on brain function, and brain mapping.
syngo Inline Perfusion: It is an important feature for looking into penumbra in case of acute stroke which can modify the treatment planning.
