November 30, 2008 - At RSNA, Philips unveiled a new 3.0T MRI scanner, the Achieva 3.0T TX, which is designed to enhance image quality, provide up to 40 percent greater scanning speed and can be used for breast MRI scans.
The new Philips MRI scanner delivers high quality diagnostic images for even the most demanding high-field applications such as breast and liver imaging.
Capturing the correct information on the first scan in a shorter amount of time delivers more convenience to the patient and increases patient throughput potential for healthcare providers. Additionally the new scanner provides consistent results across a broad range of clinical applications and patient sizes.
In the past, 3.0T imaging has been challenging for certain clinical procedures due to dielectric shading effects and local specific absorption rates (SAR). Philips’ new, proprietary, MultiTransmit technology addresses these issues at the source with multiple RF transmission signals that automatically adapt to each patient’s unique anatomy.
