Siemens won FDA clearance to introduce its MAGNETOM Amira 1.5 Tesla MRI scanner in the U.S. The device is designed for fast patient turnarounds, a quieter experience, and even energy savings.
Some scans could be performed in under ten minutes and the sound difference on some of them compared to previous scanners is impressive.
The Eco-Power mode allows the device to save up to 30% of electricity while on standby by continuously monitoring the helium inside, cooling it just enough to liquify it and prevent boiling off. This should also help reduce the amount of maintenance the machine has to undergo.
Here’s a promo video for the MAGNETOM Amira:
