Ultra-High-Field Magnetic Resonance

  • Ultra-High-Field Magnetic Resonance Moving Towards Clinical Use

    The new MRT image scanner MAGNETOM Terra with a seven Tesla magnet allows very high spatial resolution of up to 0.2 millimeters in all directions.

    One unique feature of the new “MAGNETOM Terra”¹ scanner is the Dual Mode functionality, which allows users to switch from the cutting-edge research mode into the clinical mode in less than 10 minutes. This mode includes clinically validated protocols, and paves the way for customers to continue with high end research projects. The core of the system – the new 7T magnet – is a complete new development. Siemens developed its first actively shielded 7T whole body magnet for MAGNETOM Terra, making this the first ultra-high-field scanner with all components designed, built and serviced by a single vendor.
