MacRobert Award 2016 Finalist: Siemens Magnet Technology

16 May 2016

Siemens Magnet Technology (SMT), an Oxfordshire-based subsidiary of Siemens Healthcare UK, has developed a groundbreaking 7 tesla (7T) magnet which is at the heart of the first Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) system suitable for both research and clinical applications. 

With more than double the field strength of most MRI scanners, the MAGNETOM Terra enables much higher resolution images. Siemens Healthcare will be seeking FDA and CE approval in the next year and, pending approval, it could help to achieve earlier diagnoses for neurological conditions such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis.
