Siemens Healthineers (Erlangen, Germany) highlighted its latest new innovations at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) virtual event, March 3-10, 2021 that can help enhance access to care and leverage AI to revolutionize clinical decision making.

At the fully online ECR 2021 event held in Vienna, Austria, Siemens offered live product demonstrations of its groundbreaking, new innovations in imaging, diagnostics and therapy at its virtual ECR booth. Among its new innovations and solutions highlighted at ECR 2021 was its Magnetom Free.Max, a new class of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems that the company calls “High-V MRI.” The scanner’s unique combination of digital technologies and the new field strength of 0.55 tesla broaden the range of clinical applications for MRI systems. Magnetom Free.Max considerably improves pulmonary imaging with MRI and allows patients with implants to be scanned much more accurately. Magnetom Free.Max can be installed in places where MRI used to be impossible. At just over three metric tons in weight and just below two meters in transportation height, the machine is the most lightweight as well as the most compact whole-body scanner Siemens has ever built.

Siemens also demonstrated Syngo Carbon, an all-in-one solution for easy access to all relevant data generated in the processes of imaging and reporting. Data from different departments is drawn out from various silos and integrated as part of a unified environment, including diagnostics and assessment, simplifying workflows, and making it easier for different areas to work together. Among its new innovations in molecular imaging, Siemens demonstrated Biograph Vision Quadra, a CE-Marked positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) scanner that is designed for clinical use as well as translational research - or the application of scientific research to create therapies and procedures that improve health outcomes. In this manner, the Biograph Vision Quadra expands precision medicine.

At ECR 2021, Siemens also introduced new innovations in breast care and participated in the Breast Care Symposium where key opinion leaders in breast imaging elaborated different breast imaging modalities – from traditional breast imaging to MRI and ultrasound.
