Breaking the silent technology barrier.
Historically, most attempts at reducing MR noise have focused on muffling or dampening the sound. Silent Scan uses a unique combination of three advanced technologies to eliminate the acoustic noise at the source, revolutionizing how MR images are acquired.
Silent Scan Advanced Technologies
This is a novel data acquisition method where gradients are used continuously, but are not rapidly switched on or off. As a result, mechanical vibration is eliminated and no noise is generated during the acquisition. Silenz technology acquires three-dimensional MR data, yielding isotropic resolution. Silenz also has a very short echo time improving image quality and signal from all tissues of interest.
High Fidelity Power Electronics
This platform helps maintain the extremely stable gradients and radio frequency (RF) required to avoid generating image artifacts during reconstruction.
Ultra-fast RF Switching Capabilities
Since Silent Scan technology avoids switching gradients rapidly, it’s crucial that the RF coil system be capable of switching from transmit to receive mode within microseconds to maximize signal-to-noise ratios within the images. And the GEM Suite of coils is designed to do just that.
