3T MRI

3TMRI

The Siemens MAGNETOM Prisma Fit whole-body 3 Tesla MRI scanner is a short-bore magnet, with a 60 cm diameter with full clinical capabilities.  The system contains 204 seamlessly integrated coil elements and 64 RF receiver channels, with the ability to scan the full body with a field of view of 50 cm and up to 181 cm in length.  The maximum gradient strength is 80 mT/m simultaneous on all 3 axes with a slew rate up to 200 T/m/s, and both active and passive noise reduction technology greatly reduces noise level compared to traditional systems.
