Serving more patients and helium-free operations

Saint-Augustin Clinic found what they wanted in the Philips MR 5300 system: the ability to deliver high quality imaging in a short time to accommodate the high patient load, as well as better workflow and ergonomics that enhance both patient and operator experience.

Additionally, the decision-makers were also impressed by the system’s magnet that enables helium-free MR operations. The fully-sealed BlueSeal magnet uses just 0.5%* of the helium of a conventional system – and no refills are required.

“This system is a sign of strong ecological progress for imaging. We are able to have excellent image quality while also respecting natural resources, and that contributes to the health of people in two ways”
