The FDA has cleared Siemen Medical's MRI machine for use in the U.S, a system that images with double the magnetic power of current MRI devices.
"The added field strength allows for better visualization of smaller structures and subtle pathologies that may improve disease diagnosis." states FDA Center for Devices and Radiological Health Director Robert Ochs.
The agency approved the Magnetom Terra system though sample images and 35 patient study comparisons all approved by Board-certified radiologists. The Terra system uses seven tesla magnetic field strength (7T) instead of the normal three tesla (3T) which can provide for more accuracy in imaging and medical decision-making.
