Back in 1980, the first-ever MR image of the human brain came to light, allowing for humans to access internal brain imaging for the first time in a non-invasive manner. Presently, the field of brain MRI has reached a new horizon with magnetic field strength boosted to 5.0T, which is 100 times stronger than the original. The advanced technology provides an outstanding resolution and superior signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), enabling the identification of nerve tracts in the entire brain down to 1 mm, detecting minute structures and contours of lesions with unequivocal details. This breakthrough is driving a promising new era in clinical treatment research, from identifying issues in the brain to the entire body.

United Imaging Healthcare (UIH, Warsaw, Poland) has unveiled the uMR Jupiter 5.0T, the world's first whole-body ultra-high field 5.0T MRI, for the first time internationally. The uMR Jupiter 5.0T, as an entirely new species, sets itself apart from the pack. It has successfully mastered the technical challenges of ultra-high-field MRI and is now the first machine in the world to achieve whole-body clinical applications. Thanks to its higher resolution and SNR of 5.0T, radiologists can now visualize anatomical structures that were previously unseen on 3.0T MRI. This feature enhances diagnostic confidence and facilitates precise preoperative planning.

In addition, the innovative 5.0T magnet can be installed in a 3.0T-sized room, making it more accessible to healthcare professionals. Potentially, the uMR Jupiter 5.0T can break new ground in precision medicine, translational medicine, and beyond. The uMR Jupiter 5.0T is not CE marked and not commercially available yet.
