Siemens Healthineers Scanner to Bring New Era of Personalised Treatments to Cancer, Dementia and Mental Health Conditions
Siemens Healthineers has been collaborating with the University of Cambridge to install a new type of MRI scanner, which will allow researchers to see detail in the brain as tiny as a grain of sand.
The Siemens 7T Terra MRI has the potential to bring a new era of personalised treatments to major illnesses, including cancer, dementia and mental health conditions.
The cutting-edge machinery gives researchers the opportunity to study how the brain encodes information, including things like individual memories. This means the scanner will now be able to now pick up on extremely small structures, including those associated with the early stages of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
The University of Cambridge is one of two imaging centres to host the new Siemens technology, the other located in Cardiff.
The 7T will be fully operational as of December
