Lodestone Patient Care orders Siemens Magnetom Avanto MRI system for multi modality diagnostic clinic

Siemens Healthcare UK : 04 August, 2008  (Application Story)
Lodestone Patient Care has ordered a Siemens Magnetom Avanto MRI system for the private diagnostic imaging group’s new multi modality diagnostic clinic in Brighton, UK.
The new MRI system will be used for orthopaedic, neurological and cardiac scanning.

The Magnetom Avanto is a premium 1.5T MRI scanner capable of providing outstanding image quality that will assist with quick and confident diagnosis of even the most complex cases, such as strokes, heart disease or cancer. Total Imaging Matrix (TIM) technology provides seamless scans of up to 205cm without the need to reposition or change coils. The system also offers magnet homogeneity for fat saturation, a large field of view (500mm) and strong gradients for high resolution and short scan times.

Designed not only for clinical excellence, but also patient comfort, the Magnetom Avanto has lightweight coils that are more comfortable for patients. A low table position also makes access easier for those with limited mobility, plus noise during scanning can be greatly reduced making lengthy procedures more tolerable. The wide bore and option of feet first examinations also eases feelings of claustrophobia for patients.

Vince Golledge, regional sales and corporate business manager at Siemens commented, “Siemens equipment is designed to satisfy and exceed the needs of clinicians, while providing the upmost comfort to patients. The Magnetom is a perfect example of this. We are delighted it has been ordered for the new diagnostic centre and know it will be a great asset for years to come.”

The versatility of the Magnetom Avanto means it can be used for a wide range of procedures via its innovative software applications developed for use with the system. These can provide 3D images of specific body areas, including the nervous system, breast, back and heart.
