Applications include 23Na sodium imaging for measuring metabolic rates in the brain (neurodegenerative diseases, stroke and ischemia); assessing cartilage with 31P-MRS in phosphorus MR spectroscopy to measure the energy metabolism in the brain (onco, hemodynamic impairment), the muscle, the liver and the heart. Hyperpolarized 13C spectroscopy can also be used to measure metabolism in oncology and diabetes patients.

Through the integration of a dual-tuned head coil, both multi-nuclei and conventional protocol MR exams can be performed on the same coil and within the same user interface. This increases workflow efficiency. AI-assisted workflow solutions also keep exams on schedule, which improves both patient and staff experience. The use of its AI-based smart connected imaging capabilities, optimized workflows and integrated clinical solutions helps it meet the quadruple aim by improving MR department productivity, enhancing the patient and staff experience and delivering high-quality diagnostic outcomes.

The XP gradients are expected to be helpful in research programs on neuroscience progress without compromising workflow efficiency or wide-bore patient comfort. Additionally, users can more easily switch from clinical to research protocols just by selecting a parameter in their regular protocols on the interface. The solution provides the necessary codes for each protocol. “At any point of the day, they can decide if they want to run a patient on the clinical protocol or they will run it on a research protocol and they don't have to reconfigure. They don't have to re-optimize the system. They don't have to select specific protocols in a cumbersome way. It's all easy. It's all ready to go,” said Radder.

The solution is part of the Philips Radiology portfolio of scalable high-performance MR systems, including its MR 5300 1.5T helium-free in operations MR scanner. All of these systems have intelligent software for automating tasks and technologist- and radiologist-centered image processing applications to increase diagnostic confidence. They also have enterprise-integrated workflows that streamline the pathway for precision care.

The MR 7700 is also CE marked and can be monitored 24/7.
