Philips has launched the Ingenia Ambition X 1.5T MR. This exciting new innovation is the latest advancement in the Ingenia MRI portfolio, which comprises fully-digital MRI systems, healthcare informatics, and a range of maintenance and life cycle services for integrated solutions that empower a faster, smarter, and simpler path to enabling a confident diagnosis.
The Ingenia Ambition X is CE marked and has received 510(k) clearance from the US FDA. The Ingenia Ambition X provides leading-edge MR imaging capabilities while helping to increase overall productivity, combining its revolutionary BlueSeal magnet with innovations that can help reduce downtime, enable single operator workflow, and speed up exam times by up to 50 percent.
Incorporating Philips’ breakthrough BlueSeal fully-sealed magnet, the Ingenia Ambition X is the world’s first MR system to enable helium-free operations, reducing the chance of potentially lengthy and costly disruptions, and virtually eliminating dependency on a commodity with an unpredictable supply. The fully-sealed system does not require a vent pipe and is around 900 kg lighter than its predecessor, significantly reducing the siting challenges presented by conventional magnets and lowering construction costs. The Ingenia Ambition X includes a range of innovative features that combine to deliver a step-change in productivity. The system combines guided patient setup and adaptive intelligence-driven SmartExam analytics for automatic planning, scanning, and processing. This frees up time to enable a single operator to manage the full scan from the patient’s side with just a single touch of a button.
