The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared Siemens Healthineers’ MAGNETOM Free.Max, a High-V magnetic resonance (MR) scanner.

The device merges a 0.55 Tesla (0.55T) field strength with deep learning technologies and innovative image processing, enabling a variety of MR clinical applications.

MAGNETOM Free.Max is the first 80cm wide-bore system to be made available. It aids in MR scanning for obese and claustrophobic people, thereby improving the patient experience.

Weighing under 3.5 tonnes and less than 80 inches high, MAGNETOM Free.Max’s small size aids installation with the least structural alterations.

MR scanners usually need several hundred litres of helium and a quench pipe for cooling.

As a lightweight, compact whole-body MR scanner, Siemens’ MAGNETOM Free.Max utilises less than 1l of helium, has no quench pipe and can cut down lifecycle and infrastructure expenses.

Furthermore, the device uses the company’s image processing and artificial intelligence (AI) workflow.

Siemens noted that Deep Resolve comprises a suite of algorithms that executes targeted denoising and leverages deep learning to provide sharp images of high resolution.

In addition, myExam Companion is a broad workflow solution based on AI. It is designed to facilitate analysis for users to attain consistent, quality results, irrespective of experience level, patient or throughput.

Siemens Healthineers North America magnetic resonance vice-president Jane Kilkenny said: “Siemens Healthineers is proud to offer the MAGNETOM Free.Max, which brings MR to new clinical fields with innovative digital technology, new siting features and image quality that was once realised only at higher field strengths.

“The scanner’s comparatively low weight and size can open the door to MR utilisation in orthopaedic centres, emergency rooms, outpatient centres and even intensive care units.”

In May, Siemens obtained CE mark for its CLINITEST Rapid COVID-19 Antigen Self-Test for SARS-CoV-2 virus detection in individuals aged 12 years and above, including at-home testing.
