  2. 2. Launch yourMR systeminto thedigital eraSmartPath to dStream offers all the Ingenia owners enjoy enhanced image quality, outstandingbenefits of digital broadband architecture, clinical capabilities, an excellent patient experience and exceptional workflow from dStream, Ingenia’s broadbandwithout the cost and hassle of installing a digital architecture. Now you can launch your MRcompletely new system. system into the digital era, benefitting from dStream and all its advantages – on your existing magnet. dStream delivers • Clarity: You will benefit from fully digital coils that boost image quality by capturing the MR signal as close as possible to the patient. • Speed: FlexStream streamlines workflow and reduces exam time, by enabling imaging with fewer, lighter coils and faster patient set up. • Expandability: With EasyExpand, you will never again have to upgrade your RF receive channels. Channel independence means you can expand your coil family without channel conflicts.Imaging 2.0 More for less SmartPath to dStream brings you:Imaging 2.0, Philips’ revolutionary imaging • dStream image qualityapproach signals our endless quest to raise • dStream patient management: up to 30% improvement in yourthe bar on clinical excellence – by working throughput in a variety of routine exams • Increased patient space in routine applications like spine andwith you to develop innovations that body, due to integrated posterior coil.enable you to collaborate freely, diagnose • Higher return on investment than with a new system purchaseconfidently, and care passionately. • Faster installation, minimal disruption: no magnet removal • Green choice with re-using your existing magnet2 The smart approach to digital MR The smart approach to digital MR 3

It then and speed with MultiTransmit 4D, which allows about upgrading your RF receive channels to keep up management, and improves economic value. sends the signal to the reconstructor via fiber-optic for optimal RF transmission even during real-time with advantages in coil technology. Because digitization cable, for lossless broadband data transmission. With applications. MultiTransmit reduces dielectric shading, occurs in the RF coil, the channels available are SmartPath to dStream, you’ll benefit from an SNR that helps manage local Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) determined by the coil, rather than the system. This equals that of Ingenia, as well as dS SENSE parallel and takes advantage of optimized RF management. enables plug-and-play expansion of clinical capabilities imaging, for outstanding image quality and speed. without major hardware upgrades, resulting in lower lifecycle costs and improved economic value.Your MRI todayIntera/AchievaYour MRI tomorrowSmartPath to dStream Enhanced SNR and speed Enhanced volumetric imaging Enhanced uniformity and contrast T2W TSE, Achieva 1.5T Torso XL coil 30 VISTA FLAIR in 8:16 min. versus Brainview FLAIR Cine Balanced TFE, conventional 3.0T versus seconds versus SmartPath to dStream with in MPR 4:53 min.

  4. 4. Accelerate patient management SmartAssist and FlexStream workflow – as part of the dStream architecture - accelerate patient management to match that of Ingenia. SmartAssist is the next generation of Philips powerful combination of SmartExam and ExamCards. It can halve the number of repetitive tasks supporting greater efficiency, consistency and reproducibility. Pre exam Post exam Achieva 1.5T Scan time set-up time set-up time SmartAssist efficiency assistance includes: • SmartLine: Performs intelligent background • SmartStart: Moves the table to isocenter and starts processing (such as volume view, diffusion, perfusion the exam at the touch of a button. etc.,) of multiple image datasets in parallel with image • SmartSelect: Automatically determines which coils acquisition which saves time.
