In 1983, the first Siemens MRI system bearing the MAGNETOM name was installed at the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, in St. Louis, Missouri, USA. Ever since those early days, the name MAGNETOM has been associated with technological innovation and advances, such as the first wide bore 70-cm MRI system, new coil concepts like Tim and Tim4G (“from local to total“) and, most recently, with the innovations of the BioMatrix platform. This allows the operator to adapt scanning to patient individuality via special sensors and interfaces and, thanks to the most modern acceleration techniques, also makes MRI faster and more patient friendly, for example with free breathing examinations.
Here you’ll find a series of publications that take a retrospective view to see how we got to MRI of today.
