    lives with MR

    At Philips, we believe MR still has huge untapped potential. Potential to make an even bigger difference to healthcare. Potential to touch far more lives than it does today. Exploring these possibilities is our mission – and by partnering with you, we can create meaningful innovations.

    Together, we can make the technology more accessible to patients – through consistent imaging, intuitive interfaces, and patient- friendly systems. By empowering you with our leading-edge technologies for image acquisition and visualization, we can help you deliver personalized, more definitive answers to even the most complex diagnostic questions. And our MR-based tools and applications let you extend the benefits beyond diagnostics, helping to increase the impact of MR in healthcare.

    This is what makes Philips MR unique. This is our commitment to expanding the role of MR within the health continuum, and helping you deliver better care at lower cost.

    Join us at ISMRM this year, and see how together we can touch more lives with MR.

    Future developments

    We are continuing with our partners our journey to make MR more accessible1 and definitive2. At ISMRM this year, you will see some more developments that contribute to bringing our vision to life. The need for speed for instance, with Compressed SENSE3, which relies on a heavy sub-sampled acquisition and iterative reconstruction. Come see also our advancements on APT3 (Amide Proton Transfer) a non-contrast technique based on endogenous cellular proteins in tissue, typically present in brain tumors. 

    future developments

    APT3 - Non-Contrast technique generating MRI contrast based on endogenous cellular proteins concentration in tissue.

    1 Accessible is defined as features that are expected to contribute to speed, consistency, user or patient friendliness

    2 Definitive is defined as features that are expected to deliver alternative contrasts, functional or quantitative images

    3 Compressed SENSE and APT are work in progress and not for sale in the USA

    Black Blood imaging

    At the Rothschild Foundation Hospital in Paris we run most of our post contrast T1 TSE sequences with MSDE black blood suppression because it is easier to interpret the data with the high signal from small vessels removed to optimize conspicuity of contrast enhancing lesions.

    Future of MR in radiotherapy

    Prof. Dr. Marco van Vulpen and Ir. Dr. Nico van den Berg, UMC Utrecht cancer center, the Netherlands – are talking about the collaboration with Philips, which contributes to opening new treatment pathways for MR-guided therapies.

    Ingenia MR-RT
    MR simulation platform

    The Ingenia MR-RT meets specific RT needs by providing high-quality MR images acquired in the RT treatment position. Smoothly integrate MRI through a comprehensive solution that considers the whole RT workflow - even for MR-only simulation.

    Views on MR in radiotherapy

    I believe that MRI provides us with a direction towards hypo fractionation, and potentially less toxicity. MR has already become deeply integration into our clinical practice. We have clinical protocols for planning the treatment of virtually all tumor sites like pelvis, brain and esophagus for external beam radiation therapy.

    Prof. Dr. M. van Vulpen, Chairman Radiation Oncology Department, Radiation Oncologist, UMC Utrecht, The Netherlands

    We’ve worked intensively with Philips for the past 10 years on new developments that make it easier to integrate MRI into our clinical practice. Like dedicated sequences for radiotherapy that give us the high contrast and high geometric fidelity we need for treatment planning.
