60 cm performance in a 70 cm bore
Everyone should have access to high-performance MR image quality. That’s why, with SIGNA Premier, we started with the 70 cm patient bore. From there, we found a way to maintain the thermal stability of a high-performance gradient in a wide bore. SuperG gradient coil technology improves acquisition speeds by leveraging force-balanced, all-hollow conductors with independent cooling circuits for the X, Y and Z-axes. By directly cooling each gradient layer, SIGNA Premier maximizes the duty cycle for Human Connectome protocols (MultiShell DTI and high resolution fMRI) and high resolution body, musculoskeletal and cardiac imaging without sacrificing patient comfort or bore size. As a result, SIGNA Premier is the only MR with 60 cm performance in a true 70 cm bore.
Greater consistency and stability for advanced fMRI
An all-hollow gradient coil with a force-balanced design leads to superb stability for the most demanding applications.
With great speed comes great clarity
Speed plays an important role in making research protocols practical for clinical use. In addition to a high performance gradient coil and an industry-leading number of channel counts, SIGNA Premier includes three accelerating techniques, HyperBand, HyperSense and HyperCube, which provide astonishing imaging with unsurpassed speed. Used together, these technologies help researchers achieve standard clinical exam times for advanced imaging protocols.
