Reiterating the need to be at the center of clinical decision-making across the full healthcare spectrum, Siemens Healthineers introduced its unique solutions in MRI and CT portfolio- MAGNETOM Free.Star and NAEOTOM Alpha®.
MAGNETOM Free.Star belongs to the new generation of scanners from Siemens Healthineers based on its revolutionary High-V MRI Platform. It is built on latest DryCool technology, it is a virtually helium-free scanner with an ultra-compact footprint that is far easier to install.  myExam Companion breaks down the barriers of complex MRI technologies and leverages the new possibilities of digitalization and AI to deliver high-quality results easily in routine MRI scans. The total cost of ownership over the entire life cycle of the system is up to 30 percent lower than with conventional scanners.
NAEOTOM Alpha® is the world’s first photon-counting CT. Based on the revolutionary direct signal conversion of its QuantaMax detector, NAEOTOM Alpha offers high-resolution images at minimal dose, spectral information in every scan, and improved contrast at lower noise. Photon-counting CT will advance medical diagnostics towards precise, non-invasive diagnosis in cardiology, pulmonology, oncology, and emergency medicine.
These solutions, powered by artificial intelligence are beneficial for countries like India where exists a need to fill the gap between demand for advanced devices and the availability of trained professionals managing the operations.
“At Siemens Healthineers, we embrace innovation at every step and all our endeavors are intended to make the lives of people better. These latest additions in our portfolio truly reflect our purpose “We pioneer breakthroughs in healthcare. For Everyone. Everywhere.” said, Vivek Kanade, Managing Director, Siemens Healthcare Private Limited.
