Whitepaper on MRI acceleration

By pioneering innovations such as Compressed Sensing, Simultaneous Multi-Slice and CAIPIRINHA Siemens has the most comprehensive portfolio of MRI acceleration techniques.
These methods can be used to significantly accelerate image acquisition, to increase robustness toward motion and physiological process and ultimately to expand the patient population eligible for MRI. In this whitepaper we share our view on the advantages and weaknesses of the different methods for certain clinical questions and give an outlook into the future.

Definitions of RF receiver channels and coil density

The number of RF receiver channels is one of the key purchasing criteria. Multi-channel RF systems offer clear clinical benefits with regard to coverage, image quality, and speed. We have defined meaningful and relevant definitions for the terms “RF channels” and “coil density” that are clearly related to clinical benefits. This standard should help to achieve a better comparability of RF systems and coils across different vendors.

New Strategies for Prostate Ca Management

The advancement in MRI enables a transition from whole prostate treatment to a targeted one based on clinical significance and aiming to preserve healthy tissue and patients quality of life. In this whitepaper, international experts provide you with a state-of-the-art account of where we are in this process of transition.

Compliance with EMF Directive EU 2013 / 35 / EU

This flyer discusses the application of the EU Directive 2013 / 35 / EU regarding the occupational exposure to electromagnetic fields with respect to magnetic resonance equipment. It is intended to help organizations operating MRI systems to comply with the requirements of the Directive.
