The next MR wave: Compressed SENSE and 3D APT

Clinical News
MRI NetForum Team Philips Healthcare • Netherlands

At Philips, we want to push the boundaries of healthcare and deliver seamless care while putting the patient first. Recognizing the challenges you are facing in radiology, we introduce a next wave in MR

Welcome to MR with a new point of view

Our next generation of innovations is built for a world where MR plays a greater role in delivering better care for your patients. In 2017 and 2018, we showcased several solutions that will help making this vision a reality. Our innovations are designed to help you achieve a confident diagnosis, keeping patient experience and care at the forefront. To find out more, visit

Compressed SENSE - Speed done right, every time.

For radiology departments under pressure to perform more MR procedures and reduce waiting times, we developed Compressed SENSE, a massive data undersampling technique, that speeds up 2D and 3D sequences, across all body areas and for all anatomical contrasts. It can be applied to accelerate an entire patient examination.
This accelerated brain examination with Compressed SENSE takes only 10:28 minutes. Before, without Compressed SENSE, the same examination needed 17:02 minutes.

3D APT - Enhanced diagnostic confidence in neuro oncology

3D APT (Amide Proton Transfer) is our contrast-free MR technique that addresses a need for more confident diagnosis in neuro-oncology. It makes use of endogenous cellular proteins to produce an MR signal that directly correlates with cell proliferation, a valuable marker in neuro oncology.
