Siemens introduces Tim technology

CHENNAI: Siemens has introduced total imaging matrix (Tim) technology, 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, according to a company release. With a reduction in exposure time for head-to-toe scan to 12 minutes, this results in 80 per cent elimination of claustrophobia, dramatic noise reduction and vastly improved workflow in hospitals and practices, along with lower life cycle cost, the release adds.
