MAGNETOM Local Coil Program

Fostering 3rd party local coil research & innovation

Overview

In Magnetic Resonance Imaging local receive coils are an essential part of any MR system and crucial to achieve excellent imaging performance. Siemens Healthineers´ coils are optimized not only towards image quality, but also imaging speed, patient comfort and workflow. The Siemens Healthineers local coil portfolio covers a broad range of applications with versatile multi-purpose coils as well as dedicated, body region specific coils. 

In addition, we enable our partners in both the academic and industrial environment to address further, specialized MR application areas with own, dedicated coil solutions. These coil solutions complement the Siemens Healthineers coil portfolio to ultimately serve all patient's and user's needs. 

The MAGNETOM Local Coil Program (MLCP) is the enabler for partners to develop and distribute coil solutions for Siemens Healthineers MAGNETOM MR systems. MLCP coils can be purchased through the traditional Siemens Healthineers sales channels or from the partner directly. As Siemens Healthineers Authorized Coil Manufacturers, our partners provide the official release, application support and servicing of MLCP coils. 

Together, this expands the broad application possibilities of MAGNETOM MR scanners from Siemens Healthineers even further. With our united goal of precision medicine, joining forces helps to adequately serve all MR indications and patient needs.

Siemens Healthineers Authorized Coil Manufacturers

Siemens Healthineers Authorized Coil Manufacturers are authorized to develop and distribute local coil solutions for Siemens Healthineers MAGNETOM MR systems. These partners have access to all information needed for combining their coil solution with a MAGNETOM MR system in both a safe and compliant manner. The partners are responsible for development, manufacturing and release of the coil, as well as application support and servicing. 

Coils from these partners are available either as MLCP Basic or MLCP Premium Coils. MLCP Basic Coils have been tested and released by the partner. MLCP Premium Coils have been tested and released by the partner and in addition are tested by Siemens Healthineers for compliance with both the MAGNETOM MR safety system and the MAGNETOM MR system performance requirements. When MLCP Premium Coils are used, Siemens Healthineers coils can remain connected to the MR system and can also be used in combination in the same scan.
