    In a society where reimbursements are declining and chronic conditions lead to increased MR procedures and longer waiting times, there is ever increasing pressure on the radiology department. Acceleration compromises image quality or is not applicable to the full spectrum of routine scans. Therefore, to meet the increased demand for productivity, a technology break-through in acceleration is still required. Leveraging our long standing leadership position in speed (i.e. SENSE), Philips brings compressed SENSE, a breakthrough in productivity.

    How can Compressed SENSE benefit you?

    • Can be used in all anatomical contrasts and all anatomies.

    • Break-through acceleration technique speeding up not only sequences but your entire exam.

    • Unique implementation enabling 2D and 3D scans to be up to 50% faster with virtually equivalent image quality.1

    Speed benefits of Compressed SENSE 

    What our customers say about Compressed SENSE

    Our goal is to reduce scan time, but we want the same image quality as before”

    Sabine Sartoretti, MD, Head of Neuroradiology, Institute of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine, Kantonsspital Winterthur, Switzerland

    Compressed SENSE increases the examination efficiency thanks to a shorter scan time with no change in image quality”

    Sachi Fukushima, RT, Kurashiki Central Hospital, Japan

    Experiencing the value of Compressed SENSE

    The value of Compressed SENSE


    Read about the experiences from Kantonsspital Winterthur (Switzerland) who experienced Compressed SENSE to be a simple yet powerful way to accelerate MRI scanning for different contrast types and sequences, in 2D as well as 3D.

    Experiencing the value of Compressed SENSE

    Increased throughputshorter MRI time slots


    Compressed SENSE can accelerate most MRI sequences without sacrificing image quality, which allowed KOYASU Neurosurgical Clinic (KNC) to shorten its MRI time slots. As a result, KNC increased the throughput of their MRI scanner with an average of three additional patients per day.

    Experiencing the value of Compressed SENSE

    High quality and fast scanning at KCH


    The MRI staff at Kurashiki Central Hospital incorporated Compressed SENSE into most of the brain, spine, abdominal, and cardiac examination protocols on their Ingenia 1.5T, resulting in fast and high-quality MRI scans, which is welcomed by patients and staff.
