Medical Coaches and Siemens Medical Solutions Produce First Mobile MRI Magnetom Avanto with TIM Technology

Medical Coaches displayed the first mobile MRI with TIM technology at the 2003 Radiological Society of North America in November of this year.

Total Imaging Matrix (TIM) technology, is a revolutionary new addition to the traditional process of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), opening up a new world of possibilities. This allows for whole body imaging in a single sitting virtually eliminating the need for patient repositioning. With a reduction in exposure time for head-to-toe scan to 12 minutes, resulting in 80% elimination of claustrophobia, dramatic noise reduction and vastly improved workflow in hospitals and practices, along with lower life cycle cost.

Their Avanto 1.5T model MRI system is ideal for mobile applications.

Medical Coaches’ long-term partnership with Siemens led to the development and delivery of their first 1.5 Tesla Symphony mobile MRI. Over 250 Siemens MRI trailers have been built and delivered to customers in the United States and Europe
