June 15, 2017 -- Siemens Healthineers has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for its Magnetom Vida 3-tesla MRI scanner.

Vida features Siemens' BioMatrix technology, which is designed to address user variability as well as anatomical and physiological differences among patients, according to the vendor. Siemens believes BioMatrix will help increase productivity and lower the number of rescans.

Vida includes a 60/200 XT gradient system, a 70-cm bore scanner, and a 55 x 55 x 50-cm field-of-view. Siemens has also included its compressed sensing cardiac cine application, which allows for free-breathing cardiac MRI exams by accelerating scans by a factor of 10, according to the firm.
