Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is one of the most precise and informative diagnostic methods. With the help of a magnetic field and radio waves it produces high quality whole-body and organ cross-sectional images in three dimensions in one sitting; without harming the body.

Upgrading and developing the latest diagnostic possibilities, Medical Centre ARS and its branch ARS Diagnostic Clinic  (address: Jāņa Asara street 3, Riga) has the latest and most advanced Premium-class magnetic resonance equipment in the Baltics – PHILIPS Ingenia 3,0T and Philips 1,5T. Both devices have an enlarged gantry aperture of 70 cm, which is particularly suitable for corpulents and larger patients (up to 150 kg).

Advantages of MRI equipment PHILIPS Ingenia 3,0T

  • the image quality obtained using the PHILIPS Ingenia 3,0T is substantially more precise than other 3,0T MRI systems;
  • it ensures very fast examination and high quality images;
  • the acoustic noise level during the examination is reduced by more than 80%;
  • particularly suitable for larger patients (up to 150 kg), ensured by an enlarged gantry aperture (70cm);
  • in addition, the equipment is fitted with an Ambient Experience system – soothing music is played during the exam complemented by light display, allowing the patient to feel comfortable and relaxed. This feature not only reduces anxiety and claustrophobia, but also makes the examination feel shorter.

The Philips Ingenia 3,0T MRI system is equipped with additional functions for oncological* and cardiological examinations.

*this is a screening method for the detection of abnormalities as early as possible, or to qualitatively evaluate an existing pathology. MRI examination is a special acquirement for oncological diagnosis as the full body scan helps to find early metastases.

Best_in_klass_MRThe American Medical informatics research company KLAS research recognised the Philips Ingenia 3,0T as the best magnetic resonance equipment in the world for two consecutive years (2013 and 2014).
