Philips Achieva XR 1.5T MRI Scanner

Philips Achieva XR Overview

The Achieva 1.5T XR by Philips is the only 1.5T MRI system that can be upgraded to a 3.0T without swapping the magnet. This allows a clinic or hospital to install an advanced 1.5T system for use today and providing the flexibility to transition into a 3.0T MRI system in the future. This MRI system also provides physicians a simple way to transition to 3.0T that makes economic sense. It is more cost effective and efficient than a traditional “forklift” upgrade, which requires system down time, possible construction and the “heavy lifting” associated with room reconfigurations to install a new magnet, power system and gradients.


Superb 1.5T clinical solution: High resolution at maximum speed to cover advanced applications.

High residual value with Achieva 3T X-series components such as magnet and gradients.

SmartExam: One click for consistent and reproducible MRI exams. Automated planning, scanning and processing enhances ease of use, workflow and consistency. Available for Brain, Spine, Knee, Shoulder and Breast*.

Advanced applications: Body Diffusion (DWIBS), non-contrast perfusion (ASL), DTI & fiber tracking and Cardiac.

Advanced functionality: SENSE parallel imaging for up to 16 times acceleration powering 4D Dynamic MRA techniques & ultra high resolution imaging (2048 Matrix).

Easy and economic transition to 3T: avoids typical downtime, construction and operational costs.

Easy, advanced viewing & processing tools.
