FDA clears 3D MRI application from Siemens

Siemens announced Monday, Feb. 19, that the FDA has cleared the company’s GOKnee3D MRI application.

GOKnee3D allows users to complete a diagnostic 3D knee exam in 10 minutes, according to a prepared statement from Siemens. The application also boasts “automated field of view adaptation based on machine learning and artificial intelligence.“

“The commercial availability of the GOKnee3D MRI application enables our customers to dramatically accelerate MR imaging of the knee without compromising on diagnostic quality,” Murat Gungor, vice president of MR imaging at Siemens Healthineers North America, said in the prepared statement. “Faster scanning will help our customers shorten both exam and patient wait times in support of an overall improved patient experience.”

GOKnee3D is available for the Siemens MAGNETOM Aera 1.5T and MAGNETOM Skyra 3T MRI systems, with a larger rollout planned for the future.
