The new reality in MR

Enjoy helium-free MR operations that support speed, comfort and clinical confidence


In today’s world, you may feel more pressure and uncertainty affecting your MR services. By freeing up your MR operations from potential helium complications, Philips Ingenia Ambition 1.5T can help you unlock your capacity to provide outstanding services to referring physicians and patients, reliably and productively. This can lead to a better patient and staff experience. Just think what your new reality in MR could be.

Never a better time to switch to helium-free MR operations

Wondering how to make your MR services more predictable, productive and cost-effective? Helium-free MR operations are the way forward. Helium is a finite resource, this can add extra complexity and unpredictability to your MR operations and budget. That’s why we developed the revolutionary BlueSeal magnet. Based on a decade of innovation, it operates with only seven liters of liquid helium, instead of the usual 1,500 liters. It is fully sealed, freeing up your MR operations from potential helium complications. On top of that, the Ingenia Ambition 1.5T ensures high-quality scanning, reliable performance and easy siting. Are you ready for this new reality in MR?

What makes the BlueSeal magnet so effective?

Philips BlueSeal magnet uses a highly efficient, new micro-cooling technology. It is fully sealed, so no helium can escape,1 either suddenly during a loss of field or gradually. This can have a dramatic impact on the continuity, security and cost of your MR operations.

Hear colleagues from Poole Hospital discuss why they chose a system with helium-free MR operations to help them increase their throughput and maximise their patient experience.

Head of Radiology - What happens when environmentally friendly also means patient friendly and time friendly?

This isn’t just something that will help us save energy. As cooling 1500 liters of helium uses a lot of energy. But this will also save us money and help us be more environmentally friendly.
