FDA clears first 7T MRI device

The FDA has cleared the first 7 Tesla MRI machine for use in the United States, a decision that more than doubles the static magnetic field strength available for clinical use, according to a press release.

The Magnetom Terra from Siemens Healthineers is intended for patients who weigh more than 66 pounds and is limited to examinations of the head, arms and legs. According to the company, the system’s neurological and musculoskeletal applications have the potential to help physicians by revealing functional and anatomical details not visible at lower magnet field strengths.
