Siemens to launch RT version of Vida MRI scanner

By staff writers

September 21, 2017 -- Siemens Healthineers will debut a new version of its Magnetom Vida 3-tesla MRI scanner designed for radiation therapy (RT) planning at the upcoming American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) meeting in San Diego.

The Magnetom RT Pro edition for Magnetom Vida features the company's BioMatrix technology, which corrects for the inherent anatomical and physiological differences of patients. It also has a new architecture that includes a 55 x 55 x 50-cm field-of-view (FOV) and an optional 60/200 XT gradient system.

The scanner also features Siemens' RT Dot Engine software, which automatically corrects for image distortion and reconstructs axial images, the company said.
