The release of 1.5T MRI scanners introduced a strong focus on consistency in exams. One of the focuses of the Philips Achieva 1.5T was to allow for repeatable results no matter which technician is performing the scan. Its software automatically recognizes the anatomy, plans the exam, and its processes allow for consistent results with each exam.
The Philips Acheiva 1.5T MRI machine is a fast and easy-to-use machine. It is available in 8, 16, and 32 channels. The Achieva includes SmartExam functions that allow for uniform image quality across patients, technicians/operators, patient position and pathology. The Philips Achieva 1.5T is a fast scanner, can complete a complete spinal and brain scan in less than 20 minutes.
Patient table height can be lowered to 20-inches, and the patient support enables patients weighing up to 550 pounds. It also has variable lighting, a fresh air supply and a handheld call button.
