Why did your facility invest in Ingenia Ambition 1.5T?

At SpecialT MRI, we’re relentless in our search for new imaging technologies that provide better diagnostic tools for our doctors and better care for our patients. The Philips Ingenia Ambition 1.5T delivers on both counts. It consistently provides high-quality images and a high level of patient comfort. It delivers superb image resolution, fast exams, and a patient-focused in-bore experience that utilizes audio and visual enhancements to make the patient’s MRI as comfortable as possible.

What are the benefits to your referring physicians?

When physicians refer patients to SpecialT MRI for an MRI, they can do so with confidence for a number of reasons.

  • Superb image quality. The Philips Ingenia Ambition 1.5T incorporates dStream architecture that digitizes the signal directly in the MR coil, substantially improving the signal-to-noise ratio, resulting in excellent image quality. 
  • Fast exams. The Ingenia Ambition 1.5T also speeds up MR exams, and has several innovations which significantly increase staff productivity, such as Compressed SENSE. It simplifies patient positioning and coil handling for our technologists, so patients can be scanned from head to toe across the entire 55cm field of view in less time than current MR systems. 
  • It uses new technology such as a VitalEye, an infrared camera that can detect submillimeter movement, as well as our Vital Screens, which help drive the automation of the scan and workflow. 
  • Few repeat exams. The Ingenia Ambition 1.5T gives our radiologists and referring physicians access to the clear, detailed MR images they need to help make informed diagnoses, resulting in fast, comfortable scans and fewer repeat exams for our patients. The system is designed for First Time Right imaging—we feel that the combination of the dStream technology and the in-bore experience will result in fewer repeat exams.

What are the benefits to your patients?

The Philips Ingenia Ambition 1.5T is based around a wide-bore magnet with a 70cm opening, enabling us to image patients of varying size, age and physical condition—something that has been a challenge in the past. The Ingenia Ambition 1.5T offers:

  • Peace of mind. The Ingenia Ambition 1.5T is less intimidating for patients who might be claustrophobic or anxious about getting an MRI scan. The wider opening and ambient experience are both designed to make patients feel more relaxed. 
  • Short scan time. The Ingenia Ambition 1.5T is also fast. It has several innovations which significantly increase staff productivity, such as Compressed SENSE. In fact, our technologists can perform routine exams of the brain, spine, knee, ankle, and liver quickly and easily—with superb image quality. This should result in fewer repeat exams and more convenience for our patients. 

Enhanced patient acceptance. Because our Ingenia Ambition 1.5T is an MR system, it’s less invasive than other imaging options, which our patients appreciate.
