The Philips Achieva range of "cylindrical" MR systems makes magnetic resonance images of patients. These systems are mainly used for diagnostic imaging (radiology and cardiology), but can also be used for intervention/surgical application. Each system is a combination of products and features, including a magnet, patient table, trolley and monitor. The Achieva is designed for enhancing patient comfort and efficiency. With its wide flared opening combined with soft lines and soothing colours, the appealing new design provides a spacious system with unmatched patient access, virtually eliminating anxiety and claustrophobic effects. By improving patient comfort it creates a very positive patient experience. The system also benefits the clinician. Its ease of use is enhanced with new software features such as "ExamCards", allowing complete standard clinical studies with a single mouse click, and "SameScan" allowing an easy repetition of a study for follow-up examinations.
