The MX16 computed tomography system has Philips technology inside, well renowned for its speed, reliability and clinical skills, offering patients and physicians reliable effective diagnosis. MX 16 redefines diagnostic and patient care, providing outstanding image quality at a very low dose of radiation obtained by multiple reduction and compensation techniques. Designed for performance and patient care, the system has the lowest index of CT dose while maintaining image quality at the highest standards by a high spatial resolution and unique generation of images on a matrix of 1024 x 1024 pixels. The examination table is sturdy and reliable, allowing a comfortable and precise positioning for any type of patient, being helpful for overweight persons. All system components from the X-ray tube to the generator and the detector system integrates new Philips technologies and ambitious ideas, achieving the best results in both routine examinations as well as the advanced clinical applications. Philips MX16 is a device that provides detector coverage to 24 mm, determining shorter scan and apnea times, in particular favorable to pediatric examinations or anatomical structures prone to motion, such as the thorax, abdomen and pelvis. Exclusive technologies, such as EvoEye algorithm and metal artifact reduction technique MAR offering high performance and productivity. Evo Eye In computed tomography examinations of the picture quality is essential for confidence in diagnosis. In low contrast images for viewing fine details, often occur ring or tape artifacts caused by fotopenie or the polychromatic spectrum of the X-ray beam. EvoEye exclusive algorithm calibrates and processes raw data, eliminating artifacts and harmonizing images without requiring additional computing time. EvoEye results show an improvement in low-contrast resolution difference between 4 mm to 2 mm at a contrast of 3% HU, with exceptional results in neuro studies, but also in those that require contrast dye. MAR (Metal artifact reduction) Artifacts from metal objects such as orthopedic implants, surgical clips, or dental fillings can be problematic in CT scanning because of the dark bands or streaks across the images caused by the effects of the metal on CT X-rays. These metal artifacts can hide anatomical structures and pathologies, hindering visualization and reducing diagnostic confidence. The Philips MX16 system, addresses this problem with MAR metal artefact reduction algorithm. This technology insulates the image pre-stage processing effects from metal implants and automatically generates the conventional image and the MAR, without requiring further exposure. Scanning tunnel 70 cm diameter ensures increased patient comfort in all types of exams, and together with workflow efficiency, the computed tomography system provides comfort and takes care of the patient at the highest standards with a quick and correct diagnosis. Very short time of images acquisition (full rotation of the gantry in just 0.6 seconds) promptly provides fast data related to internal bleeding and other serious injuries in traumatic cases. In addition, the system speed down to a few seconds the apnea time, improving comfort for patients with cardio-respiratory problems. The exceptional image quality, the reduced radiation dose and the efficient and rapid workflow make the MX16 computed tomography system, an advanced equipment with high efficiency in clinical diagnosis.
