London hospital taps Siemens for 1.5T MRI
Spire Southampton Hospital is investing £3 million ($5.95 million) in a new MRI facility, which includes the deployment of a Magnetom Avanto 1.5 Tesla MRI from Siemens Healthcare.

The Siemens 1.5 Tesla will enable its consultants to undertake even more complex cases and pioneer new surgical procedures by delivering more accurate, detailed and superior quality images, said the London-based hospital.
Siemens said it will also enable the hospital to more than double the number of patients it scans each year and provide them with on-the-spot results to obtain an accurate diagnosis of these conditions as well as orthopedic, dental, breast and abdominal cases, and morbidly obese patients requiring bariatric surgery.
