MAGNETOM® Aera 1.5T Open Bore MRI 

Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center continually adopts new technological advancements to enhance patient safety and satisfaction. Within the last few months, the hospital acquired two innovative systems that are designed to help treat diagnostic imaging and cardiac arrest patients in a more efficient manner.

One of the most recent developments is the MAGNETOM® Aera 1.5T Open Bore MRI system from Siemens Healthcare. This machine was designed for optimal patient comfort and to help those who experience anxiety during an MRI exam feel more relaxed and at ease.  The addition of the Open Bore MRI system to Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center’s radiology suite can expand access to diagnostic imaging that supports a complete range of clinical applications, including neurology, orthopedics, body imaging, angiography, cardiology, breast imaging and oncology.

The MAGNETOM® Aera 1.5T Open Bore MRI system is designed to offer many benefits, including superb image quality to satisfy a wide range of medical needs and help physicians make quicker, more accurate diagnoses. It also boasts a large 70 cm open bore – the tube-like structure of an MRI machine, where the patient lies during the imaging process – and can provide access for obese patients up to 550 lbs. Additionally, the system’s ultra-short bore (145 cm) may alleviate concerns of claustrophobia since many exams can be performed with the patient’s head outside of the bore.
