Philips Unveils OR-MRI System and Breast Density Quantification

Radiology solutions to facilitate the transformation of care across clinical disciplines

Philips MicroDose Mammography RSNA 2012

November 27, 2012 — At the 98th annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago, Royal Philips Electronics unveiled the company’s next chapter of its unique approach to radiology.

With the next-generation Ingenia MR-OR solution for intraoperative neurosurgery, Philips is further expanding its magnetic resonance imaging (MR) offering in the interventional MRI area. An MR-OR suite for intraoperative MRI adds value to neurosurgical facilities, supporting resection procedures that can save precious time for both surgeon and patient.

Philips also announced the next generation of MicroDose with single-shot spectral imaging (SI) together with the first clinical application. The new Philips MicroDose SI, a full-field digital mammography system, brings the potential of noninvasive spectral imaging to clinical practice without exposing women to additional examinations or X-ray radiation. The spectral imaging solution is pending FDA 510(k) clearance.
