Siemens Healthineers has showcased the Magnetom Viato.Mobile, its latest MRI scanner optimized for mobile use and featuring a patient bore of 70 cm. The Magnetom Viato.Mobile is currently under development and is not yet commercially available.
“With Magnetom Viato.Mobile, we plan to offer the most powerful innovations at 1.5 Tesla for mobile use. Installed in a trailer setup to provide greater flexibility in deploying MR imaging, the scanner can easily be taken from one place to the next or stay at the customer’s site for longer use. For example, the solution can help with screening programmes in underserved regions – it’s not the patient coming to the scanner, but the other way around,” explained Arthur Kaindl, head of Magnetic Resonance Imaging at Siemens Healthineers.
