Amsterdam, Netherlands-based Royal Philips recently unveiled the latest addition to its digital Ingenia MR portfolio, the 3T Ingenia Elition MRI solution. Integrating the latest innovations in systems, software, and services, the Ingenia Elition MR solution is designed to perform exams up to 50% faster with no compromise in image quality.

“As value-based care initiatives challenge healthcare organizations to drive better outcomes, radiology departments are specifically caught between ever-increasing imaging volume demands, while also facing pressure to engage more deeply with both referring physicians and patients,” says Arjen Radder, business leader of MR at Philips. “Philips is responding to these challenges through the development of solutions such as Ingenia Elition to improve image quality and the patient and staff experience, as well as operational efficiency.”

The Ingenia Elition MR solution delivers patient-centric imaging from patient setup to the final image. By uniting Philips’ unique dStream digital broadband technology with Compressed SENSE  and 3D APT across its new digital MR portfolio, radiologists can help solve challenging clinical situations, improve the patient experience, and set new directions for clinical research.

Ingenia Elition’s VitalScreen offers operators fully guided patient setup with a newly designed user interface for workflow optimization, and VitalEye brings a unique patient sensing approach, enabling respiratory signal without any interaction from the operator. VitalEye technology and algorithms process more than 200 body locations in parallel to intelligently extract signs of breathing, allowing routine exam set-p time to occur in less than a minute, even for less experienced operators.

Philips Ambient Experience and in-bore Connect solution, provides an immersive audio-visual experience to calm patients and guide them through MR exams.
