Brain MRI in an overweight patient

The New advanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanner has been installed at Olympic Diagnostic.


which provides:

The MAGNETOM Vida Fit is an advanced 3 Tesla magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system with a bore diameter of 70 cm, making the patient’s stay in the examination room very comfortable. It also enables even claustrophobic patients to undergo MRI examinations.

Biometric Technology (BioMatrix Technology)
This unique biometric technology automatically adapts to the body type of each patient, regardless of their anatomy and physiology. Additionally, it incorporates myExamAssist technologies for automating examination workflows, ensuring repeatability, and consistently delivering high-quality imaging.

Enhancing the Patient Experience
The patient’s examination experience is dramatically improved, thanks to:

  • The open architecture of the MRI system, with its short length and spacious 70 cm bore diameter.
  • The Quiet Suite technology, which reduces noise during the examination by up to 96%.
  • Reduction in required examination time through the application of new techniques.
  • Examination time is reduced by 50% compared to any other scanner, while image clarity is  enhanced.

High-Quality Imaging
The MAGNETOM Vida Fit MRI system features:

  • State-of-the-art multi-channel coils.
  • Advanced imaging techniques with Artificial Intelligence (AI), providing anatomical and functional imaging of all areas of the human body with particularly high diagnostic value, in a very short examination time.
  • Capability to perform a wide range of MRI examinations, including neurological, oncological, musculoskeletal, cardiac, pediatric examinations, as well as specialized advanced imaging techniques.

Some of these specialized examinations include:

  • Multiparametric MRI of the brain, including diffusion, susceptibility, perfusion, and spectroscopy techniques.
  • Whole-body MRI for assessing oncological burden.
  • Techniques for reducing artifacts from MRI-compatible metallic implants.
  • Microhemorrhage assessment in the brain (SWI).
  • Multiparametric prostate imaging.
  • Breast MRI.
  • Measurement of cerebral blood flow.
  • MR Neurography.
  • Study of cerebrospinal fluid flow.
  • Dynamic magnetic angiography in all anatomical regions.
  • MR Urography.
  • MR Enterography.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging of the upper and lower abdomen with dynamic liver study under free breathing.
  • Cardiac MRI under free breathing, even in patients with significant arrhythmias
