In January, the FDA cleared Siemens’ MAGNETOM Lumina 3T scanner. The Lumina has a 55-centimeter-by-55-centimeter-by-50-centimeter field of view, and provides the same technology benefits as Altea.
New UltraFlex 18 coils are also available for the Altea, Lumina, Sola and Vida. They come in both a small and large size for imaging the extremities and abdomen and come with positioning aids for the foot and ankle. These provide a great alternative to costly dedicated coils, Farischon said.
Numed, a well established company in business since 1975 provides a wide range of service options including time & material service, PM only contracts, full service contracts, labor only contracts & system relocation. Call 800 96 Numed for more info.
The company also has new blanket coils called the Contour 24 and Contour 48. The high-density coils adapt flexibly to the patient’s anatomy and body contour.
“The coils also come with SlideConnect technology, which guides the coil into the table connections, simplifying workflow and reducing wear and tear on the pins of the coil,” Farischon said.Back to HCB News
