Fayette Regional has the first-ever digital broadband magnetic resonance imaging system: the Ingenia 1.5T from Philips Healthcare.
This revolutionary machine is designed to quickly perform high-quality MR scans with a high level of patient comfort. Ingenia 1.5T can significantly reduce exam time and has a wide opening to accommodate patients of varying size, age, and physical condition. This makes Ingenia less confining than 60cm MR systems and a more attractive noninvasive imaging option for patients at Fayette Regional. In fact, most scans can be performed with the patient’s head entirely out of the opening, creating a better patient experience.
The Ingenia 1.5T incorporates a number of breakthrough technologies designed to deliver exceptional image clarity. It quickly provides radiologists and physicians with precise, detailed MR images needed to help confidently diagnose many different anatomical and structural problems in the body—including brain and nervous system disorders, cardiovascular disease, and organ disease.
“Ingenia 1.5T image quality is excellent and it’s fast. We can perform American College of Radiology recommended routine exams of the brain, spine, knee, ankle, and liver in less than 8 minutes, with superb image quality. It gives our radiologists and referring physicians access to the high-quality images they need to make informed diagnoses. With Ingenia 1.5T, our patients experience fast, comfortable exams and fewer re-scans. Ingenia 1.5T is a win-win for our clinicians and our patients,” said Randy White, President and CEO of Fayette Regional.
