By uniting Philips’ unique dStream digital broadband technology with Compressed SENSE and 3D APT across its new digital MR portfolio, radiologists have the tools necessary to help solve challenging clinical situations, improve the patient experience and set new directions for clinical research.
Unique patient sensing technology
New patient sensing technology and AI-driven SmartExam analytics for automatic planning, scanning and processing of exams help improve the entire MR workflow, from image acquisition to reading preference. Ingenia Elition’s VitalScreen offers operators fully guided patient setup with a newly designed user interface for workflow optimisation and VitalEye brings a unique patient sensing approach, enabling respiratory signal without any interaction from the operator. VitalEye technology and algorithms process over two hundred body locations in parallel to intelligently extract signs of breathing – allowing exam set-up time to occur in less than a minute.
Philips Ambient Experience and in-bore Connect solution, offers an immersive audio-visual experience to calm patients and guide them through MR exams, further improving the patient experience. A study at Herlev Gentofte University Hospital in Denmark showed that the Ambient Experience in-bore Connect solution helped reduce the number of rescans by up to 70%4, allowing radiologists to handle more patients per day. The unique combination of innovations that the new Ingenia Elition offers is improving the entire workflow from image acquisition to reading preferences.
