Frequently Asked Questions

Is Kineticor’s Prospective Motion Correction (PMC) system available for clinical use?

The KinetiCor camera system is part of the Siemens MR BioMatrix portfolio – the Kinetic Sensor. The Kinetic Sensor is 510(k) cleared for patient monitoring for the MAGNETOM Vida and MAGNETOM Sola. The MPRAGE sequence with prospective motion correction is 510(k) cleared for the MAGNETOM Vida. For more information on this, please contact your local Siemens MR representative.

For other MRI systems, the KinetiCor’s PMC system is for investigational use only and is not cleared or approved for clinical use by any regulatory body. For more information on using PMC for research purposes, please contact us.

What MRI pulse sequences does Kineticor's PMC currently support?

KinetiCor’s PMC technology can theoretically work on any pulse sequence. For more information on which MRI systems and pulse sequences are currently supported by KinetiCor’s PMC system, please contact us.

For other MRI systems, the KinetiCor’s PMC system is for investigational use only and is not cleared or approved for clinical use by any regulatory body. For more information on using PMC for research purposes, please contact us.

Does Kineticor PMC extend MR scan times?

KinetiCor’s real-time PMC technology does not extend the time it takes to conduct an MR scan.

Does Kineticor's PMC system correct for motion of other areas of the body besides the head?

Currently KinetiCor’s PMC is optimized to correct for head movement and is most often used in brain imaging. For more information about using PMC to correct for motion other than head motion, please contact us.

How much does Kineticor's PMC system cost?

Pricing for KinetiCor’s PMC system is dependent on the unique operating and user requirements of each research institution. For more information on pricing, please contact us.

What types of technical support is provided to customers using Kineticor PMC systems?

KinetiCor offers on-site installation support and post-installation remote technical support to its Customers. The company also offers optional annual technical support contract. For more information on technical support, please contact us.

Does Kineticor provide the pulse sequences with its PMC system?

KinetiCor may provide selective PMC pulse sequences as part of the purchase of PMC system from KinetiCor. Alternatively, customers may also obtain PMC pulse sequences through their MR vendor’s mechanisms to distribute experimental non-product MR sequences. Please ask your vendor about PMC sequences compatible with the KinetiCor system, or contact us.
