Philips intra-operative MRI takes next step with Ingenia MR-OR

Clinical News
MRI NetForum Team Philips Healthcare • Netherlands

Philips has been a leader in interventional MR since 1995, and has been offering both 1.5T and 3.0T MR-guided neurosurgery. An MR-OR suite for intra-operative MRI adds value to neurosurgical facilities, supporting resection procedures that can save precious time for both surgeon and patient: when intra-operative MR reveals incomplete resection, the resection can be completed in the same procedure and reduce the need for subsequent surgery. When Philips introduced ngenia, the first digital broadband MR system, the next generation MR-OR was conceived as well.

Wide-bore Ingenia 1.5T and 3.0T use dStream architecture, so that the signal is digitized in the coil at the patient and transported via fiber-optic cables, increasing SNR by up to 40% compared to its predecessor. MR-OR using Ingenia 1.5T or 3.0T can help to provide fast, easy and comfortable intra-operative MRI. The dual-room concept is designed for high-end intra-operative MR with smooth workflow. It is developed to offer MR and OR, which can be used together or alone to promote high usage and cost effectiveness. For intra-operative use, the Ingenia is combined with a Maquet OR table, a choice of two types of head frames, and coils. It can be combined with neuro navigation systems such as those from BrainLAB or Medtronic.

MR-OR provides MRI during neurosurgery, enabling surgeons to see the results of the surgery before finishing it. Smooth in-line transfer of the patient between MR and OR keeps transfer times down to just a few minutes.

With front and rear docking capabilities to increase flexibility and throughput, as well as a 70 cm bore, the Ingenia MR-OR system is developed for both brain and spine neurosurgery, with a focus on fast, smooth workflow. It’s the most versatile and fastest intraoperative MRI ever developed by Philips.
