The time is now for MR in RT – with BioMatrix.
The tailored hardware and software as part of the MAGNETOM RT Pro edition for MAGNETOM Vida can assist you in increasing your institution’s RT planning capabilities and supports you in improving patient outcomes. Thanks to a wide range of positioning equipment and new coils, the MAGNETOM RT Pro edition for MAGNETOM Vida paves the way for more precise and reproducible RT planning. In addition to the revolutionary BioMatrix Technology, MAGNETOM Vida comes with various new features and dedicated RT protocols that support the demands of RT professionals.
Support precision in radiotherapy with MRI intelligence
Confidently integrate MR information into radiotherapy treatment decisions.
RT treatment planning at 3T
MAGNETOM Vida achieves new levels of 3T performance with an all-new magnet which provides excellent homogeneity and geometric accuracy. It also has a large Field-of-View of 55 x 55 x 50 cm3 and a gradient strength of up to 60/200 mT/m/ms, simultaneously, providing an increased SNR in diffusion weighted imaging. Trendsetting applications such as RESOLVE, StarVIBE or Compressed Sensing GRASP-VIBE1, deliver excellent image quality for multiple body regions to support precise radiotherapy treatment planning.
RT treatment planning with BioMatrix Technology
BioMatrix Technology, available on MAGNETOM Vida, addresses the challenges of variability in order to truly personalize MRI, and increase precise, reproducible imaging for more efficient RT planning, monitoring, and follow up.
BioMatrix Sensors utilize respiratory sensors which are directly embedded in the spine coil to acquire and display the patient’s respiration data as soon as the patient lies on the table – even when the RT positioning equipment is in use. Then, the optimal exam strategy, e.g. free-breathing Compressed Sensing GRASP-VIBE1 can be selected.
BioMatrix Tuners encompass SliceAdjust to adapt to challenging anatomical regions: driving robustness and reproducible high-quality imaging for all patients. The SliceAdjust technology provides reliable and distortion-free whole-body DWI scans. The result: No broken spine artifacts for excellent correlation with anatomical scans.
BioMatrix Interfaces simplify how the user interacts with the scanner. With one-touch, using the Select&GO screen and the underlying BioMatrix Body Model, positioning can be performed 30%2 faster, and delays due to incorrect positioning can be avoided. Simply select the body region to be scanned for reliable patient positioning without the need of detailed anatomical knowledge, or extensive experience with MR positioning.
The new BioMatrix dockable table makes patient preparation and transportation easy for any kind of user and any patient. You can now prepare your patient directly on the BioMatrix dockable table in a separate room, freeing up the MR room for other MR scans. After the patient preparation has been completed, the BioMatrix dockable table with eDrive support provides motorized assistance so that even the heaviest patient can be effortlessly moved to and from the scanner.
Scan patients consistently in the treatment position
In order to provide precise and reproducible patient positioning from the beginning, the MAGNETOM RT Pro edition for MAGNETOM Vida offers dedicated hardware for high quality MR imaging in the treatment position.
Reproducible patient positioning with dedicated RT Positioning Equipment
To fully utilize MR imaging capabilities for RT treatment planning, leading partners in the RT market (Qfix, CIVCO, Orfit) provide positioning equipment compatible with all MAGNETOM RT Pro edition scanners. All RT positioning equipment is tailored to the 70 cm Open Bore design, supporting smooth workflows and easy patient preparation for optimal accuracy in radiation therapy. The LAP DORADOnova MR3T laser bridge is MR compatible and supports a precise patient marking process.
High resolution imaging with new ultra-high-density coils
MAGNETOM Vida comes with a wide range of coils, providing precise image quality in the treatment position. Thanks to an ultra-high coil-element density, the new BioMatrix and UltraFlex coils provide increased SNR and enable high acceleration factors that can save considerable time. The high flexibility and easy application of the UltraFlex coils make patient positioning fast and provides high resolution imaging for various body regions.
Rely on intuitive and dedicated RT workflows
Routinely use soft-tissue contrast to spare organs at risk and smoothly integrate multi-modal information for RT contouring.3
Expand your capabilities with the RT Dot Engine
The MAGNETOM RT Pro edition for MAGNETOM Vida comprises dedicated software and applications that advance your capabilities in treatment planning. Benefit from workflow guidance with the RT Dot Engine, helping ensure consistent scan results. All protocols included are optimized to improve spatial integrity. Fast isotropic 3D sequences and distortion correction deliver high spatial integrity in regions where it’s most critical to have precise information.
Maximize RT imaging intelligence with the syngo.via RT Image Suite3
The practical integration of acquired MR data into existing RT workflows is often compromised by limited capabilities of RT planning software solutions to visualize non-axial image data. This missing link is closed with the syngo.via RT Image Suite – a dedicated imaging-for-RT software solution enabling multi-modality image viewing, registration and contouring. Additional syngo.via software packages support tumor quantification and treatment response assessment to enable optimization of therapy to meet individual needs and thus to improve patient outcome.
