Johns Hopkins Bayview at Forefront of Expanding Access to MRI With First Install of Siemens New MAGNETOM Verio
Date:2/4/2008

Bayview Increases High-Field MR Imaging Services to Unprecedented Number of

Claustrophobic, Elderly and Bariatric Patients

MALVERN, Pa., Feb. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center in Baltimore has become the first facility in the United States to install the newest magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system from Siemens Medical Solutions (http://www.usa.siemens.com/healthcare) -- the MAGNETOM(R) Verio. Combining 3 Tesla (T) strength and sensitivity with a 70-cm open bore and Tim(TM) (Tot al imaging mat rix) technology, the MAGNETOM Verio is helping Hopkins Bayview to provide high-field imaging to many patients who previously could not benefit from the technology.

Certain patients, such as children or adults experiencing excessive pain or limited mobility, and the elderly, have had difficulty tolerating MRI exams. However, the Verio's short length -- the shortest 3T on the market today -- along with its large bore -- the widest 3T available -- can help reduce a patient's anxiety and discomfort. Furthermore, due to the system's wide bore and a 550-pound table-weight capacity, the MAGNETOM Verio enables clinicians to image and diagnose many obese patients, an increasingly important factor as one-in-three Americans is considered obese.

"The Verio is an exciting addition to our facility because it enables us to provide high-field imaging to new patient populations, including our bariatric patients," said Dr. Mark E. Bohlman, chairman of imaging at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. "Furthermore, the Verio is already being used to assist our clinicians in new ways, such as scanning for viable cartilage for transplant and helping create neurosurgical, pre-op planning maps."
