Siemens has also seen interest in 70cm Open Bore designed systems, at 3T field strength. The company’s introduction of the MAGNETOM Espree and MAGNETOM Verio has swayed other vendors to follow suit with open bore offerings. Medrad/ Bayer Healthcare has also noted a recent migration to 3T coils, which may be an indication of future trends.

“A couple years ago, we would see 1.0T and 1.5T coils coming to us for repairs, but now the scanner technology has shifted, so we are seeing more 3T coils,” Medrad’s Smith notes.
