Nairobi, Kenya - Philips East Africa and the Diagnostic Imaging Department at Karen Hospital recently inaugurated the Philips Ingenia 3.0T MRI - the first-ever digital broadband magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) solution. Driven by Philips’ commitment to developing innovative patient care solutions, the Ingenia MR delivers exceptional image clarity, scanning efficiency and scalability. Karen Hospital has acquired one of the most advanced MRI systems of its kind in East Africa. When utilizing an Ingenia system, clinicians will find they spend significantly less time on the logistics related to patient set-up, contributing to as much as a 30 percent increase in throughput compared to non-digital MRI systems. This could potentially enable more patients to be scanned, reducing the waiting list of patients at the hospital.
Clinicians have long relied on MRI for its exceptional ability to differentiate various soft tissues. The Philips Ingenia MR system introduces, for the first time in MRI, digital signal acquisition and processing directly in the RF receive coil nearest to the patient. Ingenia’s performance provides a reliable, patient-friendly approach for oncology imaging, staging and treatment assessment.
