To create a wide bore MRI system without compromise requires attention to various aspects of the system design as well as a number of innovations.

Philips Ingenia with Xtend technology is designed, not simply to avoid compromises, but to surpass the performance of previous generations of clinical MRI systems. The paper discusses we shall discuss aspects of the design philosophy and technologies that enable improved clinical MRI capability, one detail of which is the wider patient bore. In particular, it will address the following questions:


  • What is the fundamental difference between the Xtend design philosophy and that of other wide bore systems?
  • Which innovations were made to address the higher power demands and the consequences for SAR and SNR resulting from the wider patient bore?
  • Which unique features of the Ingenia design add improved clinical benefit?
  • How does technical leadership in magnet, radio frequency (RF) and gradient system technology translate into unprecedented clinical performance?
