    Acceleration software and innovative AI at work

    Two radiology technologies join forces in Philips SmartSpeed to speed up scan time with no loss in image quality

    Engine tools

    The state-of-the-art Compressed SENSE speed engine uses a unique, full balanced K-space sampling approach to maximize speed while preserving details.

    AI reconstruction

    Award-winning Adaptive-CS-Net reconstruction1 has been trained with Compressed SENSE data as input and is applied at the source of the MR signal to ensure maximum data and image fidelity.

    Together, these AI radiology technologies speed up scan time with no loss in image quality. Read the white paper to learn how it works.

    Dr. Nagaraj
    In the pediatric population the ability to reduce scan time is extremely important, can result in better image quality and patient satisfaction. With the compressed sense and AI reconstruction, we have found that imaging time can be reduced by about 50%, we have also seen that image quality is very comparable with the current standard of care.”
