The Ingenia 3.0T from Philips Healthcare is the first-ever digital broadband magnetic resonance imaging system. This revolutionary machine is designed to quickly perform high-quality MR scans with a greater level of patient comfort. Ingenia 3.0T has a wider opening to accommodate patients of varying size, age and physical condition. The larger opening and lighting makes Ingenia less confining and a more attractive noninvasive imaging option.  

The Ingenia 3.0T incorporates a number of breakthrough technologies designed to deliver exceptional image clarity. It brings us digital coil technology, only offered by Philips. It provides radiologists and physicians with precise, detailed MR images needed to help confidently diagnose many different anatomical and structural problems in the body-including brain and nervous system disorders, cardiovascular disease and organ disease.

"Ingenia 3.0T image quality is excellent and it's fast," said Bill Tobin, director of radiology at ETMC Tyler. "We can perform American College of Radiology recommended routine exams of the brain, spine, knee, ankle, wrists and hands with superb, highly detailed images. It gives our radiologists and referring physician's access to the high-quality images they need to make informed diagnoses. With Ingenia 3.0T, our patients experience fast, comfortable exams and fewer re-scans."
