Ingenia Ambition 1.5T X

Excel in your daily MR services, helium-free

Based on its new, revolutionary fully sealed BlueSeal magnet, Ingenia Ambition X lets you experience more productive¹ helium-free MR operations. The Ingenia Ambition X delivers superb image quality even for challenging patients, and performs MRI exams up to 50% faster² with Compressed SENSE accelerations for all anatomies, in both 2D- and 3D scanning. Fast overall exam-time is achieved by simplifying patient handling at the bore with the touchless guided patient setup. Furthermore, the Ingenia Ambition offers an immersive audio-visual experience to help calm patients and guide them through MR exams.

Forget about helium with BlueSeal magnet

Forget about helium with BlueSeal magnet

Philips BlueSeal uses a new micro-cooling technology which requires only a negligible amount (less than 0.5% of today’s volume¹) of liquid helium for cooling. This fraction of the usual amount of liquid helium is placed in the magnet during manufacturing and then fully sealed. As a result, no liquid helium can escape⁶, either suddenly during a loss of field or gradually.
Designed to facilitate low siting and other construction costs

Designed to facilitate low siting and other construction costs

BlueSeal magnet does not need a vent pipe, significantly reducing construction costs. Philips BlueSeal is also around 900 kg lighter than its predecessor¹, a decrease in weight that can potentially facilitate easier siting, reduce floor adaptations and further lower construction costs.

Toward uninterrupted MR operations

Relying on unique digital controllers and 24/7 e-Alerts connectivity³, Philips BlueSeal qualifies as the first magnet driven by adaptive intelligence to support a set of unique service functionalities called EasySwitch. EasySwitch solutions aim to minimize unexpected downtime in case of MR operational issues.

Accelerate exams by up to 50%

Compressed SENSE accelerates 2D- and 3D scans by up to 50% with virtually equivalent image quality². As a result, Ingenia Ambition does not only accelerates sequences, but the entire patient exam. You can now consider adding patient slots to your daily schedule.
A caring eye on your patient

A caring eye on your patient

VitalEye, a revolution in patient sensing, helps you keep a caring eye on your patient thanks to touchless patient sensing. The quality of the physiology signal is significantly better than a belt-based approach. The operator receives a continuous and robust respiratory signal without any interaction.
Designed for single-operator workflow

Designed for single-operator workflow

The Ingenia Ambition is designed to make system operation by a single person more time efficient¹. From the moment your patient is set up through to the time the images are ready for reading, the Ingenia Ambition offers the opportunity to run your examinations in one smart touch.

Shorten breath holds and increase patient compliance

Compressed SENSE enables up to 40% faster scan time, resulting in breath holds down to just 5s, with virtually equivalent image quality for cardiac and abdominal imaging². Combined with the visual and auditory breath hold guidance available on our In-bore experience, Ingenia Ambition offers a unique solution to support comfortable abdominal and cardiac imaging for all your patients.

To simplify your scanning process for patients with MR Conditional implants, ScanWise Implant⁴ software provides step-by-step guidance to enter the condition values of the implant manufacturer. Your MR system then automatically applies these values for the entire examination. ScanWise Implant⁴ empowers you to serve this growing patient population with confidence, helping to increase your referrals.

Leveraging dStream digital broadband architecture and Compressed SENSE, the Ingenia Ambition delivers superb visualization of soft tissue and bone, helping you capture fine bone structure, cartilage and meniscal details. You can now acquire 3D submillimeter (0.7 mm or less) isotropic images in less than 5 minutes with excellent SNR, meeting 3.0T resolution standards on a 1.5T scanner.

From the moment a patient is moved into the scanner (the point at which people report the most stress), through completion of the scan, the Philips In-Bore Connect solution can help patients to relax, follow directions and minimize motion. In a study, conducted using our in-bore solution, Herlev Gentofte University Hospital in Denmark managed to reduce the number of rescans by up to 70%⁵.
