Ingenia 1.5T S is designed for first-time-right MR imaging

Clinical News
MRI NetForum Team Philips Healthcare • Netherlands

At Philips, we look beyond technology to the experiences of those at the center of it all, to unlock insights that inspire our innovation. We strive for MRI advances that contribute to delivering better care at lower cost. At RSNA 2014 we showed MRI innovation that matters to you.

First-time-right imaging – isn’t that what you want?

Imaging productivity can be hampered by variability in image quality and efficiency. Sources of this variability include differences between patients, choices made by different technologists and image artifacts. This is why we strive to align the various elements of MR imaging to routinely deliver outstanding quality, high patient comfort and fast and easy workflow.

In control of a fast workflow with Ingenia 1.5T S

Ingenia 1.5T S is a fast and robust workhorse that can help you stick to your tight schedule, while providing consistent, high quality information for confident diagnosis. Similar to other Ingenia models, it excels in fat suppressed and motion suppressed MRI. Designed for first-time-right imaging, it can enhance throughput up to 30%* with fast and robust procedures powered by dStream technology. Ingenia 1.5T S can drive clinical performance by providing more information in a given time slot to support your diagnoses.

An amazing patient experience

As the innovator of patient experience we now bring innovation into the bore.
Ingenia 1.5T S offers an amazing, immersive in-bore audiovisual experience designed to distract patients from their anxiety and give patients control over what they will see. ComforTone will reduce noise during the entire exam and a flexible AutoVoice feature helps to coach the patient through the exam.

More diagnostic information in your available time slot

On Ingenia 1.5T S, the dStream digital architecture empowers Premium IQ** that offers high SNR and image quality as well as fast imaging.

Philips dS SENSE provides fast scanning for clinical routine; stunningly high acceleration factors are now in use and these can be combined with high resolution. MultiVane XD offers motion-free imaging, even for challenging patients, using robust motion correction. Combining it with dS SENSE allows for a high-speed exam with high spatial resolution.

The mDIXON technique has demonstrated its consistent quality in fat-free imaging, even with large FOV and in challenging patients. mDIXON can be used with FFE and TSE for enhanced performance. With robust imaging and high resolution, mDIXON simultaneously provides four contrasts (in-phase, out-of-phase, water and fat). In other words, it produces fat-free and normal images in one scan.

iPatient helps to stay in control when patients vary

All patients are different, but consistent quality is desired in all patients. The iPatient platform allows you to automatically store and adjust imaging settings for specific cases, giving you more time to focus on your patient’s specific needs.

An uncomfortable patient can mean a long or repeated scan and wasted time. Using the Posterior coil integrated in the table as well as conforming Anterior coils, a comfortable and fast exam is possible. Combined with a streamlined user interface and automated planning and coil element selection, scanning is now a smooth experience for both patient and clinician.

Ensure economic value

Philips Applications Support is known for its helpful support in day-to-day and long-term needs of our customers. But we can also help with consultancy and financial solutions for business outcomes, and radiology informatics solutions that enhance department productivity through data integration, data analysis and instant collaboration. With these and more services available to our users, Philips truly provides innovation that matters to you.
