Image quality you’ve come to trust
Philips MR is known for outstanding image quality, and the Intera Achieva 1.5T MR system maintains that tradition. It allows our radiologists to identify potential problems and provide you—the referring physician—with more information for a more accurate diagnosis.
Faster scan times
The Intera Achieva 1.5T MR system offers one of the fastest scan times of any scanner on the market, through our unique patented SENSE technology, our high-speed broadband reconstructor and our Freedom technology.
Together, these enable some of the most advanced techniques possible and maximize both patient comfort and efficiency.
Patient comfort a priority
With the scanning speed of the Intera Achieva 1.5T MR system, most scans last only 15 to 40 minutes. The compact design makes it less intimidating in appearance, the color scheme reduces the feeling of claustrophobia, and most scans can be conducted with the head entirely outside of the opening.
With the Intera Achieva 1.5T MR system, you can diagnose many different anatomical and structural problems in the human body, using:
- Musculoskeletal imaging
- Neurological imaging
- Vascular system imaging
- Spectroscopy of the brain and internal organs
- Whole body imaging
The Lourdes MRI Center is conveniently located on the hospital campus (behind the main building) with a separate entrance and registration area.
