Queen’s Medical Centre, Nottingham invest in Philips Ingenia 1.5T MRI scanner
Guildford, UK – Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), Queen’s Medical Centre, (QMC), part of Nottingham University Hospital NHS Trust recently acquired Philips’ Ingenia 1.5T MRI scanner. The new system, which is a replacement scanner, joins an existing Philips’ Ingenia 1.5T scanner already in use at the centre. QMC, which covers the Nottingham area with a population of a million, is also a regional neuro, cardiac and spinal centre and accepts patients from much further afield. Across all of the systems, the centre scans approximately 46,000 patients a year.
We already have Philips MRI equipment and have been impressed with image quality and ease-of-operation. The new system will enable us to scan claustrophobic and large patients with more ease. With faster sequences and a far more pleasant environment, we hope to reduce the number of paediatric general anaesthetics. The scanner comes with Compressed SENSE, which means we will have more flexibility to scan faster or achieve greater image quality without extending scan times.” Concluding, Jo adds, “We found Philips excellent in both their technical support and training

Offering digital clarity and speed, the Ingenia 1.5T helps clinicians diagnose with confidence, explore new applications and work productively. It enables advanced functionality for neuro, oncology and cardiac applications, and with the largest homogenous field-of-view in a commercial 70 cm system, patient comfort workflow for challenging patients is enhanced.
Compressed SENSE is a breakthrough acceleration technique that speeds up not only image sequences, but entire exams. By adding Compressed SENSE, users can accelerate their imaging exams while maintaining image quality. This approach can be used in all anatomical contrasts and all anatomies.
