Siemens receives groundbreaking order for medical technology in the Netherlands

Siemens Healthcare is delivering to the University of Maastricht high-field MRTs with field strengths of 3, 7, and 9.4 Tesla, providing the customer with one of the most powerful MRT (9.4 Tesla) made for research on humans. Siemens is the only company that can deliver such a system. Thanks to its high field strength, the 9.4-Tesla MRT can identify brain structures and functions that exist on a microscopic scale. Using these research studies, scientists hope to obtain greater insight into the causes of serious illnesses such as multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, and the growth of tumors. In addition, the causes of behavioral changes, disorders such as difficulties in reading and writing (dyslexia), and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD-ADD) will be investigated. The project is supported financially by the European Union, the Province of Limburg, and the municipality of Maastricht.
