Twenty years of 3.0T

In 1999, GE received FDA 510(k) clearance of its first 3.0T MR scanner, making this the 20th anniversary of 3.0T scanning on a GE MR system. GE’s first cleared scanner was installed at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.
While 1.5T remains the dominant Tesla strength for high-field scanners, 3.0T has distinct advantages, such as extremely clear and vivid images and shorter overall scan times. 3.0T is also ideal for imaging neurological, musculoskeletal, breast and vascular, where the minute details are especially crucial for diagnosis.
