Date:6/10/2011

MALVERN, Pa., June 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently granted Siemens Healthcare (NYSE: SI) 510(k) clearance for the Biograph mMR, the first system worldwide to enable simultaneous whole-body acquisition of data from magnetic resonance (MR) and positron emission tomography (PET).

While MR provides exquisite morphological and functional details in soft tissue, PET goes further to investigate the human body at the level of cellular activity and metabolism. The Biograph mMR enables users to generate the location, function, and metabolic activity of organs in a single image at the same time. Designed to provide a more complete diagnostic picture, this 3T hybrid system illustrates Siemens' vision: to deliver technologies that enable physicians to determine effective diagnosis, better outcomes, and more efficient treatment.

The Biograph mMR allows a combined approach to imaging anatomical, functional and biochemical characteristics of disease. Potential clinical applications for molecular MR include the early identification and staging of malignancies, therapy planning, and treatment. The Biograph mMR shows the greatest promise in oncologic and neurologic applications where MR and PET have proven their clinical value.

"Integrating these two powerful modalities into one simultaneous whole-body system represents a breakthrough innovation.  More powerful diagnostic tools can bring greater efficiency to healthcare and can help to improve human health," said Gregory Sorensen, MD, chief executive officer, Siemens Healthcare USA and Canada.  "Together with our customers, we are striving to improve care for all patients in a sustainable and cost-effective manner."

The Biograph mMR has been adopted as a diagnostic im
