Philips has unveiled its latest imaging systems range with solutions including the Next MR Wave (Ingenia Ambition, Ingenia Elition), Epiq Elite ultrasound system, DigitalDiagnost C90 digital X-ray system, Intellispace Discovery portal, MR clinical application Compressed SENSE, and IQon CT system. Designed to connect people, data, and technology, these state-of-the-art innovations offer benefits including improved outcomes, enhanced patient experience, increased staff satisfaction, and lowered the cost of care delivery. These solutions will equip clinicians with detailed information thereby resulting in a diagnosis that is more confident.
Bringing much-needed advances to the demanding application areas of imaging systems, the Ingenia Ambition 1.5T MR is the latest advance in the MRI portfolio. Incorporating Philips’ breakthrough BlueSeal, fully-sealed magnet, the Ingenia Ambition 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 helium – an expensive commodity with an unpredictable supply. Another innovation of the Ingenia range, Philips Ingenia Elition offers cutting-edge MR imaging techniques, while setting new standards for clinical research in 3.0T imaging based on superior gradient and RF designs. Philips also released a new and exciting MR clinical application-Compressed SENSE, which is a unique breakthrough acceleration technique speeding up not only sequences but also the entire scan. This new paradigm in productivity requires a unique implementation, enabling 2D and 3D scans to be up to 50 percent faster with virtually equal image quality.
The DigitalDiagnost C90 is a ceiling mounted digital X-ray system is designed to support patient throughput, incorporating a variety of tools that reduce the need for retakes of procedures, saving time and creating a faster workflow. The company also launched the next generation of IntelliSpace Portal, the latest edition of Philips’ comprehensive, advanced visualization, and quantification platform. This latest version features enhancements across the solution, with a particular focus on oncology to provide radiologists with an improved full set of applications and workflows to support the reading and follow-up of complex oncology cases.
The Epiq Elite ultrasound, a comprehensive all-in-one solution to help clinicians assess, treat and monitor liver conditions, an innovation to provide consistent image quality across a wide range of clinical needs. With Eqip Elite, caregivers will bring in ultimate solutions to ultrasound, with clinically tailored tools designed specifically to build on diagnostic confidence.
Philips also introduced the Philips IQon, world’s first spectral detector-based CT, which enables doctors to view anatomical structures and identify material composition. It also provides in-depth spectral information on demand and retrospective analysis, at low-dose.
