Transforming 1.5T economics.
With MAGNETOM Aera, the full applications coverage is standard and a comprehensive set of advanced applications is available. And, with the accuracy of Tim 4G integrated with the consistency brought to your scanning by Dot, you can achieve excellent image quality and exam reproducibility.
MAGNETOM Aera offers high resolution and fast protocols even for uncooperative patients. The MAGNETOM Aera Neuro Suite includes advanced protocols for diffusion imaging, perfusion imaging, and fMRI. These are combined with Tim 4G coils with a high density of elements and latest iPAT2 reconstruction techniques help to enable fast imaging and an excellent SNR.
MAGNETOM Aera’s Ortho Suite is a comprehensive collection of protocols for joint imaging including the spine. Tim 4G’s new ultra high-density coils for MSK imaging improve SNR and anatomic coverage. Dot’s customizable workflows featuring AutoAlign and AutoCoverage for knee, hip and shoulder. The advanced syngo WARP techniques provide susceptibility artifact reduction functionality (such as from MR conditional metal implants) and MPR planning for fast 3D measurements and Inline 3D multiplanar reformatting help workflow efficiencies.
The cardiac suite covers comprehensive 2D routine cardiac applications, ranging from morphology and ventricular function to tissue characterization. Dot’s on-board guidance and the increased SNR of Tim 4G helps you to make cardiac part of your clinical routine. The Cardiac Dot Engine helps eliminate one of the biggest challenges in cardiac MR simplifying complete cardiac localization down to just a few clicks.
Tim 4G offers high channel body imaging thanks to the combination of the Body 18 and the Spine 32. MAGNETOM Aera is also equipped with dedicated clinical body applications. Ultra-fast high resolution 2D and 3D protocols are provided for abdomen, pelvis, MR Colonography, MRCP, dynamic kidney, and MR Urography applications. With the Abdomen Dot Engine, standardized, efficient, and comprehensive workflows for the upper abdomen with excellent image quality are provided.

With MAGNETOM Aera’s Angio Suite excellent MR Angiography can be performed to visualize arteries and veins with or without contrast agent. For scans with contrast media, the Angio Dot Engine helps to realize optimized bolus timing at every examination. Real-time graphics and AutoVoiceCommands assist the user in organizing the ideal timing of breathing, scanning, and contrast media.
MAGNETOM Aera’s Onco Suite features a collection of sequences, protocols, and evaluation tools that guide through the detailed assessment of a variety of oncological conditions. Acquire whole body coverage for metastasis staging in a single, continuous move with with the TimCT Onco Dot Engine. Together with Dot’s on-board guidance, this innovative technology improves patient throughput and provides superb image quality.
