  2. 2. We’re talkingprofound change The driving mandate across all of healthcare today is the need to deliver better outcomes at a lower cost. It’s clear that technology innovation will play an enormous role in making the promise – and the requirement – of efficient, affordable, high quality care, a lasting reality. MAGNETOM® Skyra, the first 70 cm Tim+Dot system is a breakthrough advancement in 3T imaging that will significantly increase your productivity by up to 50%*, and as a result, transform every part of your day. The benefits will be nothing less than profound. MAGNETOM Skyra. Transforming 3T productivity. *Data on file; results may vary.2 3
  3. 3. Tim® (Total imaging matrix) technology advances MR Dot™ (Day optimizing throughput) technology offers imaging – again – with the fourth generation (4G) of a customizable framework for patient personalization, flexibility, accuracy, and speed. It’s Siemens ultimate user guidance, and exam automation to help optimize innovation technology that unlocks imaging power every part of your MRI workflow. From reduction in like never before. Tim’s newly designed ultra high- your exam times and improved clinical workflows to density coils are combined with the highest channel enhanced staff efficiencies. Exam by exam, patient by configurations ever offered. And, with Tim 4G’s new patient, Dot helps to take the complexity out of MRI patient-adaptive technology, image quality and scanning. Dot multiplies the power of Tim resulting in acquisition speed go to a whole new level. Think more greater image consistency and diagnostic confidence, exams per day. Every day. greater ease of use, and a day that’s more productive than ever before.4 9
  4. 4. Choose color or wood panel for MAGNETOM Skyra. Or, with our new Illumination MoodLight™ design, the color of the panel can be changed as desired. You can also customize the scanner with your own engraved logo.MAGNETOM SkyraTransforming 3T productivity. MAGNETOM Skyra delivers true day-changing performance. Through the groundbreaking integration of Tim 4G and Dot, MAGNETOM Skyra sets a new standard of efficiency and care, which will help you harness a new level of productivity. Tim 4G gives you the power you need for superb image quality. And Dot helps take away the complexity inherent in MRI scanning that can slow you down. With MAGNETOM Skyra you’ll significantly optimize your clinical and business processes, reduce staff workload, and radically improve your return on investment (ROI). And, most importantly, deliver the excellent quality of care to your patients – regardless of patient condition. Dot integrated. Tim 4G integrated. Top-of-the-line 3T.
