magnetom open viva preferred
The magnetom open viva preferred integrates all aspects of the clinical mr exam into an efficient, cost-effective environment. The system has the same computer platform and software as other magnetom systems, which allows the open to quickly take advantage of the latest state-of-the-art imaging techniques. The system utilizes a magnet, which is open on 3 sides for easy patient access. Compact design of the entire system allows easy installation in as little as 325 square feet.
c-shaped resistive 0. 2t magnet
the magnetom open has an open c-shaped, 0. 2 tesla magnet, magnet power supply, and passive shim system. The wide horizontal opening of the magnet increases patient comfort and allows easy access to the patient. The water-cooled magnet weighs only 12 metric tons in its operational configuration. The 5 gauss line extends 8 feet 6 inches in front of the magnet and only 7 feet 10 inches in all other directions, which in many installations can be constrained within the exam room.
15 mt gradients with a rise time of 900 usec in all three spatial directions are integrated into the magnet design. Siemens uses a proprietary design to achieve flat actively shielded gradient coils, which provide axial, sagittal, coronal, oblique and double oblique cross-sectional images of the whole body. This powerful gradient system allows easy implementation of new techniques due to its flexibility.
