Cl II Siemens MAGNETOM systems

Company:Siemens Medical Solutions USA, Inc.
Date of Enforcement Report: 4/1/2015
Class lI:


MAGNETOM systems Aera/Skyra/Avanto/Verio with software syngo MR D13A ; indicated for use as magnetic resonance diagnostic devices (MRDD) that produce transverse, sagittal, coronal and oblique cross-sectional images, spectroscopic images and/or spectra, and that display the internal structure and/or function of the head, body, or extremities. Other physical parameters derived from the images and/or spectra may also be produced. Depending on the region of interest, contrast agents may be used. These images and/or spectra and the physical parameters derived from the images and/or spectra, when interpreted by a trained physician, yield information that may assist in diagnosis. The MAGNETOM systems may also be used for imaging during interventional procedures when performed with MR compatible devices such as in-room display and MR-safe biopsy needles.
Recall Number Z-1308-2015
