FDA Clears Magnetom Lumina 3T MRI From Siemens Healthineers

BioMatrix patient personalization technology and in-bore infotainment system emphasize productivity and patient comfort

FDA Clears Magnetom Lumina 3T MRI From Siemens Healthineers

January 30, 2019 — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared the Magnetom Lumina 3 Tesla (3T) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner from Siemens Healthineers.

The Magnetom Lumina features BioMatrix patient personalization technology, which significantly improves productivity while ensuring consistent quality. The system has a wide, 70-cm bore and GO technologies powered by artificial intelligence (AI), which accelerate the entire MRI workflow. For example, a whole spine exam can be performed up to 20 percent faster compared to a conventional system. Tim 4G and Dot (Day Optimizing Throughput) engines support standardized, highly reproducible scan procedures. To further facilitate workflow efficiency, the system features an optional dockable table. Additionally, new Turbo Suite acceleration packages can further reduce scan time on routine musculoskeletal (MSK) examinations of various parts of the body by up to 50 percent.

The Magnetom Lumina will also offer the optional Innovision in-bore infotainment system, which is designed to move with the scanner table to not only create the illusion of an enlarged bore, but also to provide a unique video experience with excellent sound quality. The infotainment system is still under development and not yet commercially available.
