A wise approach to confidence with MR Conditional implants.

 

The growing population of patients with MR Conditional implants are particularly challenging to image with MR. However, excluding these patients from MR imaging could make diagnoses difficult and might have a negative impact on referrals to your institution. With a guided user interface and automatic scan parameter selection, ScanWise Implant simplifies imaging patients with MR Conditional implants, allowing you to serve this growing patient population and enhancing referrals.

Confident diagnoses within MR conditions implant

ScanWise Implant provides additional opportunities for your hospital facility to scan challenging patients with MR Conditional implants

 

Automatic scan parameter adjustment
When you view images that were obtained using ScanWise Implant, you can be confident that the sequences chosen were appropriate for each patient’s specific MR Conditional implant

 

O-MAR partnership
When imaging near an MR Conditional Orthopedic implant, O-MAR and O-MAR XD complement ScanWise Implant by reducing near metal susceptibility artifacts, resulting in improved visualization of more soft tissue and bone in the vicinity of the implant

Let ScanWise Implant
guide you

 

Once you have identified the parameter values of the implant manufacturer's MR imaging conditions, ScanWise Implant’s user interface guides you through simple steps to enter these parameters so it can automatically adjust all sequences to remain within the limits of the MR implant conditions.

Easy to operate, enhances
your confidence

Enter the MR Conditional implant conditions only once, guided by the user interface; you don’t need to do any calculations or repeatedly add or check information for every sequence of your exam

Personalized

ScanWise Implant automatically adjusts the scan parameters for all scans and pre-scans to meet the implant Conditional values entered by the operator

Reliable

ScanWise Implant helps to reduce guesswork and additional user calculations

Grow your business without hampering workflow

ScanWise Implant allows you to confidently offer MR imaging to a growing and potentially underserved subset of the patient population, enhancing your reputation and encouraging referrals.

 

Workflow

Automatic scan parameters adjustments improves efficiency and saves time

 

Staffing flexibility

Can be operated with confidence by well trained radiographers of all experience levels

From a technologist’s perspective, we’re excited about the prospect of shortening exam times and broadening the diagnostic modalities available for those patients with MR Conditional implants. Philips understands the needs of radiologists and brings the expertise needed to create a smart solution to help guide operators to meet the specific criteria for each implant."
