Philips receives FDA 510(K) clearance for MR7700 – News

Farma Darya

MR 7700 leverages the automated technology of SmartWorkflow to guide and coach where required. In addition to conventional proton magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy, MR 7700 has in-built MR protocols to combine proton imaging with imaging based on sodium, phosphorus, carbon, fluorine, and xenon [3]. This multi-nuclei capability makes MR 7700 suitable for enhanced anatomical and metabolic/functional imaging in areas such as neurology, pulmonology, and oncology to help deliver fast, and confident definitive decision-making.

Via integration of a dual-tuned head coil, both multi-nuclei and conventional proton MR exams can be performed with the same coil and within the same user interface to help increase workflow efficiencies, while AI-assisted workflow solutions keep exams on schedule to help improve both patient and staff experience. Finally, with access to proactive remote monitoring, remote diagnostics and remote field support, more than 500 parameters of the MR 7700 are monitored from a distance to detect and resolve issues without impacting department operations.

Philips is debuting the MR 7700 at the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) annual meeting (May 7-12) in London, and will spotlight the new system at the upcoming European Congress of Radiology (ECR) annual congress in Vienna in July. This newest MR innovation is part of the Philips Radiology portfolio of scalable high-performance MR systems, including its latest MR 5300 1.5T helium-free in operations MR system, all of which feature intelligent software to automate tasks to help relieve the burden on busy radiology staff and departments. Philips Radiology portfolio delivers patient-centered solutions to reduce anxiety and discomfort; technologist- and radiologist-centered image processing applications for clinical and diagnostic confidence; and enterprise-integrated workflows that streamline the path to precision care.
