Brief Overview About The Siemens MRI Skyra

The MAGNETOM Skyra 3T Scanner, couple with the the compan’s Aera Scanner, are the first Tim 4G and Dot systems. Both have received 510(K)FDA clearance and are now commercially available in the U.S. MAGNETOM Aera and Skyra 70cm Open Bore systems were developed with efficiency in mind. Tim 4G, the fourth generation of Siemens RF technology, starts with 48 RF channels at both 1.5 and 3T – presently the highest standard RF Channel configuration ever offered at either field strength, according to the manufacturer.
