PTB's new 3T MRI arrived


The predecessor had served us well for more than 13 years, but eventually it was time to replace it. On May 09, 2023, PTB's new 3T MRI arrived on our premises and was lowered into the historic "Quarzuhrenkeller". Distinguishing feature of the new Cima.X model from Siemens Healthineers, first installation of its kind in Europe, are the powerful gradients. Rated at 200 mT/m they outperform the previously installed Siemens Verio by a smashing factor of five. Diffusion and flow measurements MRI will particularly benefit from this performance gain.
