New Siemens 3T Vida MRI scanner

North Shore Radiology and Nuclear Medicine at North Shore Private Hospital recently installed one of Australia’s first Siemens 3T Vida MRI systems, one of only six such class leading scanners worldwide, which provides revolutionary technology in clinical imaging. This wide bore scanner overcomes patient variability which means high-quality, fast, personalised exams with a shorter scanning time and improved patient comfort.

Neurosurgeon Dr Raymond Cook and Neurologist Dr Paul Silberstein are pictured with the new machine and other members of the Sydney DBS team, operative Radiographers Glen Cooper and Nathan Anderson. The team are excited about the positive outcomes this machine can provide for patients who undertake Deep Brain Stimulation for Parkinson’s Disease and other movement disorders.
