    Most MRI departments share three priorities: increasing productivity, patient satisfaction and referring physician satisfaction3. Speed that doesn't compromise on image quality can address these needs.

    This is what drove us to pioneer speed applications and until recently our state-of-the-art speed engine, Compressed SENSE. And now, we are building on our proven technology and enhancing it with AI.

    Philips SmartSpeed delivers fast high-quality imaging for a wider range of patients, including patients who are in pain, who struggle to hold their breath during the exam, or who have MR conditional implants.

    What makes Philips SmartSpeed so fast and effective?

    Philips SmartSpeed is built on two key technologies:

    Engine tools

    Compressed SENSE: Our state-of-the-art speed engine that uses a unique, full balanced k-space sampling approach to maximize speed while preserving details. The result? No compromise on image quality.

    The excellent denoising capability in Philips SmartSpeed allows imaging with extremely high resolution without increasing the scan time. This is particularly important, for example, in depicting small lesions in the vascular system.’’
