XRES adaptive image processing provides real-time image enhancement using proprietary contextural algorithms that reduce speckle, haze, and clutter artifacts. At the same time, XRES enhances edges by correcting discontinuities between textured regions, allowing improved visualization of real tissue information. Developed by Philips from MR research,this technology was based on years of extensive research on how humans perceive tissue patterns. XRES imaging is a true adaptive image-processing technique using an amazing 350 million calculations per frame of data. The appropriate processing sub-functions are constantly adapting for each pixel of the frame , for each frame in time. The result is images virtually free from noise, with extraordinary clarity and border definition.
