The Achieva 1.5T XR by Philips is the only 1.5T MRI system that can be upgraded to a 3.0T without swapping the magnet. This allows a clinic or hospital to install an advanced 1.5T system for use today and providing the flexibility to transition into a 3.0T MRI system in the future. This MRI system also provides physicians a simple way to transition to 3.0T that makes economic sense. It is more cost effective and efficient than a traditional “forklift” upgrade, which requires system down time, possible construction and the “heavy lifting” associated with room reconfigurations to install a new magnet, power system and gradients.
