Siemens Healthineers Announces First U.S. Installation of MAGNETOM Lumina

Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, S.C., recently became the first healthcare facility in the United States to install the MAGNETOM Lumina 3 Tesla (3T) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner from Siemens Healthineers. MUSC’s deployment of the MAGNETOM Lumina reflects the spirit of its strategic partnership with Siemens Healthineers, which formed in 2018 to disrupt and reshape healthcare delivery in South Carolina. The agreement focuses on driving performance excellence at MUSC and producing clinical and value-driven innovations in pediatrics, cardiovascular care, radiology, and neurosciences.

The MAGNETOM Lumina has a wide, 70cm bore and cutting-edge technologies that include BioMatrix patient personalization technology with the Select&GO Interface, which eliminates the need for anatomical landmarking to permit faster patient positioning. Dot (Day Optimizing Throughput) technology automates the exam to support standardized, highly reproducible scan procedures. To accelerate routine examinations, Turbo Suite offers customized speed applications covering various areas of the body to reduce scan time by as much as 50 percent without compromising image quality.

“Siemens Healthineers is pleased to provide its strategic partner Medical University of South Carolina with the MAGNETOM Lumina, which will help MUSC transform care delivery by providing consistent image quality while improving the patient experience and optimizing workflow,” said Jane Kilkenny, Vice President of the Magnetic Resonance business at Siemens Healthineers North America.

“With the acquisition of the MAGNETOM Lumina MRI scanner at our most recently opened outpatient center, we will be able to offer our patients the best-of-breed technology, enhance department workflow, and increase both patient and referring physician satisfaction,” said Philip Costello, MD, Chief, Radiology Integrated Center of Clinical Excellence (ICCE) at Medical University of South Carolina.
