Our new 3T VERIO, 70 cm Open Bore is a state-of-the-art scanner ideally suited for the whole body and neuro-imaging. It is a short system with light-weight magnet (173cm, 6.3ton) and zero helium boil-off. There are up to 102 seamlessly integrated coil elements with up to 32 RF channels to use simultaneously.

  • A unique combination of 3T and 70 cm Open Bore
  • The shortest 3T system on the market today
  • Ultra-light magnet with zero helium boil-off
  • Large field of view, supporting a full range of clinical applications
  • TrueFormâ„¢ magnet design offers enhanced image quality by optimizing the homogeneity

Tim: A revolution in flexibility. Select exams, not coils.
Up to 102 seamlessly integrated Matrix coil elements and up to 32 independent RF channels combined to create one Total imaging matrix. A matrix scalable to both the anatomy under examination and the individual patient size.

Tim: A revolution in accuracy. Local and total.
Matrix coils unleash the high SNR only local coils provide. Extreme precision for single organ exams up to whole-body exams. From 5 mm to 196 cm FoV. Without coil or patient repositioning. For all applications. With up to 100% more SNR.

Tim: A revolution in speed. Parallel in all directions.
Head to toe, front to back, and side to side for unlimited Parallel Imaging. Up to PAT 16. Even for double oblique slice orientation. Without restrictions in coverage. With the high SNR of standard Matrix coils.

Innovative applications. Powered by Tim.
