FDA Clears MAGNETOM Sempra MRI System

Siemens Healthineers has announced that the Food and Drug Administration has cleared the MAGNETOM Sempra, a 60-cm 1.5 Tesla magnetic resonance imaging system. The MAGNETOM Sempra is distinguished by its low operating costs, innovative technologies, and full-coverage service contract, which help radiological practices and groups, as well as small- and medium-sized hospitals, operate profitably despite rising industry cost pressures. Additionally, the system’s standardized workflows are designed to help facilities achieve consistent, user- and patient-independent levels of quality.

“Siemens Healthineers is pleased to offer the MAGNETOM Sempra, an MRI system designed to address the needs of radiology practices, smaller hospitals, and other providers in delivering high-quality patient care in a cost-effective manner,” said Murat Gungor, Vice President of Magnetic Resonance at Siemens Healthineers North America. “As with the other MRI systems in our portfolio, the MAGNETOM Sempra can help providers increase productivity and address profitability while delivering a highly positive patient experience.”

With Day optimizing throughput (Dot) workflow engines, the MAGNETOM Sempra enables the user to adjust to each clinical case and to the condition of each patient while simultaneously maintaining exam standardization. The system comes equipped with three Dot engines to automate and streamline workflow for brain, spine, and large joint procedures. These Dot engines cover roughly three-quarters of the average exam volume and help users increase productivity in addition to avoiding unnecessary and costly repeat scans.
