PHILIPS LAUNCHES ULTRA LIGHTWEIGHT AND FLEXIBLE MR SMART FIT COILS
RF coils are an essential part of every MRI scan. The new ultra-lightweight coils provide exceptional flexibility, significant reduction in patient setup time and optimization.
Royal Philips launched three new fit-for-purpose MR Smart Fit coils at #RSNA23. The new ultra-lightweight coils provide exceptional flexibility, significant reduction in patient setup time and optimization with Philips’ SmartSpeed AI solution, which allows for better image quality resolution and improved diagnostic confidence for healthcare providers.
Thin, flexible and lightweight, the Smart Fit TorsoCardiac 1.5T coil is a great example of the new coils’ versatile design. With the ability to bend more than 90 degrees in all directions and improved coverage, it is designed to enable trained physicians to obtain cross-sectional images of the internal structure of the head, body or extremities. The coil provides exceptional flexibility and can be wrapped around difficult anatomies, such as long bones, and can be used to image patients suffering from unilateral hip pain, or those with a plaster cast. To improve radiology productivity, the Smart Fit 1.5T shoulder coil is designed to reduce setup time by 10%, with the patient prepared while sitting on the table. Finally, the Smart Fit Knee 3.0T coil can be used with a wide range of patients, with easy and fast positioning on the table.
