Imaging is to be seen, not heard.
Advanced noise reduction technologies are present on all MAGNETOM® scanners. Nevertheless, we have continuously strived to develop technologies that will further lower noise without compromising imaging efficiency and quality. With Quiet Suite1, we have addressed the root source – sharp gradient switches – to take noise reduction to a new level. Quiet Suite includes QuietX sequences and the inaudible PETRA as well as optimized protocols for neurological and orthopedic examinations. Experience a broad range of benefits:
- Complete, quiet exams for neurology and orthopedics
- No compromises in image quality
- Minimum of 70% reduction in sound pressure2
Hear the difference. Compare the outcomes.
Example of a complete neurological examination:
1May not be commercially available in countries outside the U.S., future availability cannot be guaranteed.
2Data on file. The sound example is for demonstration purposes only. The ratio between conventional and Quiet Suite MRI sound is accurately represented: however, actual sounds may differ in volume and quality. Reduction in sound pressure, measurements made on MAGNETOM Skyra, not considering ear plugs.
