Philips MR Ingenia Ambition 1.5T
Based on its new, revolutionary fully sealed BlueSeal magnet, Ingenia Ambition lets you experience more productive¹ helium-free MR operations.
The Ingenia Ambition delivers superb image quality even for challenging patients, and performs MRI exams up to 50% faster with Compressed SENSE acceleration for all anatomies in both 2D- and 3D scanning3. Fast overall exam-time is achieved by simplifying patient handling at the bore with the touchless guided patient setup.
Furthermore, the Ingenia Ambition offers an immersive audio-visual experience to calm patients and guide them through MR exams.
Transition you department to more productive helium-free MR operations1
Built around the unique, fully sealed BlueSeal magnet, the Ingenia Ambition is designed to simplify your MR installation, reduce lengthy and costly disruptions in your MR services, and help your department transition to productive helium-free operations. Based on a decade of innovation, this revolutionary magnet operates with only seven liters of liquid helium and is fully sealed – freeing up your mind and operations from potential helium complications.
What’s more, the system can achieve hours of continuous high-performance scanning and offers a leading field-of-view of 55cm for a wide bore 1.5T system.
The new BlueSeal magnet is fully sealed. As a result, no helium can escape11, either suddenly during a loss of helium or gradually. This reduces long interruptions to MR services that can result from helium issues. Moreover, it means that the magnet does not have to be refilled with liquid helium during its lifetime.
Philips BlueSeal is also lightweight with a minimum siting limitation of 3,700 kg. This is around 900 kg lighter than its predecessor1, a decrease in weight that can potentially facilitate easier siting, reduce floor adaptations and further lower construction costs.
Delivers speed without sacrifice, every time
Thanks to innovative sensing technology and in-room guidance, Ingenia Ambition delivers new workflow capabilities to minimize interactions with the system, freeing you up to care for your patient and drives fast exams. The Philips Compressed SENSE unique acceleration technique allows you to speed up the entire MRI examination with virtually equal image quality, every time. Furthermore, the system is designed to be handled by a single operator, helping you address your staffing challenges. With Ingenia Ambition, we aim to help you scan more patients per hour.
A confident diagnosis boosted by new clinical capabilities
We have equipped the Ingenia Ambition with a wealth of clinical capabilities – with the aim of helping you deliver consistently high-quality diagnostic outcomes, even for complex cases, while maintaining short and more predictable time slots. We foresee this as a path to confident diagnosis, letting you tackle existing, new and future clinical demands, while addressing the current upswing in patient volume experienced by radiology departments. Ingenia Ambition is designed to help you become the preferred partner within your referral network.
Dramatically improves patient experience
Your patients are at the heart of Ingenia Ambition – which includes an MR experience that enhances comfort and compliance. With up to 80% acoustic noise reduction9, voice guidance, immersive in-bore visuals and a comfortable table, your patients are made to feel at ease, resulting in smooth, fast exams.
