Musculoskeletal MR imaging on Ingenia

Clinical News
MRI NetForum Team Philips Healthcare • Netherlands

Ingenia has a complete MSK coil set available and comes with new possibilities

Ingenia 1.5T and 3.0T build on the high standard of musculoskeletal imaging that Philips included on the Achieva platform. A full set of dedicated coils is continued on Ingenia, with short cabling and easy connection on the table.

Ingenia coils offer new ways of working

On Ingenia, the FlexCoverage anterior coil combined with the integrated posterior coil are designed to improve workflow for many MSK applications, such as long bone imaging, hip imaging, and total spine, including the ability to tilt the coil when imaging patients with kyphosis.

With the Xtend imaging space, the large coverage of the coil arrays allows efficient acquisition of the whole femur without the need for coil repositioning during the examination. Similarly, high quality total spine examinations can be performed without worrying about selecting the right coil elements for high SNR. The operator selects a FOV, and the system determines which elements to use for highest SNR.

Ingenia’s dS Flex coils can be combined with the integrated posterior coil to allow users to create their own combinations. Dedicated, multi-channel MSK dS coils provide high SNR and push the limits of speed and resolution, while supporting minimal patient movement. The dStream interface eases coil set-up and digitizes the signal close to the coil.

More features benefit MSK imaging

Even with the wide 70 cm bore, Ingenia features a powerful gradient set capable of delivering 45 mT/m gradient amplitude, needed for 0.2 mm resolution images, which are becoming a part of routine 3.0T imaging.

With Ingenia’s flexible oversampling, the planning software clearly indicates if sufficient anatomy is covered to prevent wrapping into the image. Margins may be set asymmetrically, for instance for off-center anatomy such as shoulder or for the feet, where the risk of wrapping primarily comes from one side. The user interface helps reduce scan times, while giving visual control of wrap.

With integrated, dedicated and flexible coils, the workflow enabled by Xtend, and Philips xperience and knowledge to back it up, the Ingenia 1.5T and 3.0T systems deliver the solution to your MSK maging needs.
