Enhancing 1.5T MRI abdomen images to 3T quality

1.5T MRI imaging suffers from substantially lower Signal-to-noise (SNR) and contrast-to-noise ratio (CNR) than 3T MRI. These differences are particularly evident in body imaging such as abdomen, prostate or women pelvis.
An imaging center was facing a major challenge with their Philips Ingenia 1.5T MRI scanner. Their abdominal scans were of suboptimal quality which put them in a challenging position compared to other centers in their region, due to inadequate scan results.
The center considered several options to address the issue, including upgrading to a newer, more advanced MRI scanner. However, the cost of such an upgrade was prohibitively high.
The solution came in the form of a new technology from Medic Vision, which uses advanced image processing and machine learning algorithms to significantly enhance the quality of MRI images. Medic Vision’s iQMR increases SNR, enhances edges, and restores fine details in the image. The FDA-cleared iQMR supports all body parts and scanning protocols and can be integrated with any MRI scanner, regardless of the make or model, making it a cost-effective and efficient solution for any imaging center looking to improve the quality of its MRI images.

Adding iQMR to their existing MRI 1.5T scanners improved image quality to that of 3T scanners, hence facilitating their utilization for abdomen MRI.

  • Extend service offering – perform high-quality abdomen scans with a 1.5T scanner
  • Increase Scanner Usability
  • Achieve better diagnostic capabilities without having to invest in a costly upgrade.
