Philips presents Achieva 3.0T TX with MultiTransmit RF technology

Clinical News
MRI NetForum Team Philips Healthcare Philips Global

Philips continues to drive the innovation of 3.0T imaging with the launch of its Achieva 3.0T TX, featuring MultiTransmit RF technology. This multi-source RF transmission boosts scan speed and enhances image quality by better signal uniformity, thereby providing more consistent results. The intelligent RF management of MultiTransmit benefits particularly breast and body imaging.

Inventor of parallel receive imaging now introduces parallel transmit

About a decade ago Philips was the first to introduce parallel imaging using multi-channel RF receive coils. The invention of this SENSE parallel imaging technique led to higher temporal resolution and improved spatial resolution without increased scan time.


Now, Philips offers MultiTransmit RF technology, built into the Achieva 3.0T TX system. This technique uses multiple RF transmission sources for sending RF signals in contrast to the traditional single RF transmit source.

Breast and body MR benefit from more robust imaging

MultiTransmit technology enables uniform distribution of the RF signal and makes it possible to adapt the RF signal to the shape and size of each patient's body. Thus it addresses the high-field challenges like dielectric shading and SAR, thereby enhancing imaging speed and refining consistency and image quality. Its high quality particularly benefits breast and body imaging. Achieva 3.0T TX enables higher patient throughput by speeding up scan time in various applications, and provides enhanced images so there may be less need for rescanning.

Philips' leadership in MR innovation

The development of the Achieva 3.0T TX with MultiTransmit is just the latest addition to a long record of Philips innovations. These range from the first compact magnet, the first compact 3.0T system, the first high field open MRI system, to the invention of SENSE parallel imaging, and recently SmartExam automatic planning, scanning and processing.


Philips' offerings at RSNA 2008 evidence Philips' commitment to continued innovation to bring about integrated solutions for the clinical practice.
