Philips Ingenuity Core128

Clinical excellence with

Welcome to the benefits of 128-slice scanning, improved spatial resolution and excellent advanced
clinical capabilities. The kind of scanning that offers low dose while maintaining high image quality.
Fast, any way you look at it, with speed of reconstruction, as well as speed of collaboration with the
IntelliSpace Portal option. It also offers in-room upgradability to Ingenuity CT so its capabilities can grow
as your needs grow.

High-resolution with high confidence

Philips Ingenuity Core128 offers 4 cm coverage
for excellent image quality and is also available
with iDose4, our iterative reconstruction
technique. With a focus on clinical integration
and collaboration, patient focus, and
improved economic value, the scanner
provides high image quality at low dose with
up to 57% improvement in spatial resolution.
Now you can personalize image quality based
on your patients needs at low dose. And with
Ingenuity Core128 with iDose4, reconstruction
is achieved in 60 seconds or less. When its
time to grow, Ingenuity Core128 is fully in-room
upgradable to Ingenuity CT for high
performance with no tradeoffs.

high confidence
One of the innovations of the Ingenuity family is Ingenuity Data Acquisition and Sampling (DAS), which
provides high-resolution 128-slice, thin reconstructions that are clinically equivalent to those resulting
from dynamic ZFS (Z-Focal Spot) standard resolution acquisition and exceed those resulting from
dynamic ZFS high-resolution and ultra-high-resolution acquisitions. DAS is excellent for neuro, cardiac,
spine, and abdominal CTA scanning, and has a 33% improvement in z-axis spatial visualization.

Low-dose, low injected contrast imaging

iDose4 is an iterative reconstruction technique that gives
you control of the dial so you can personalize image quality
based on your patients needs at low dose. When used in
combination with the advanced technologies of the iCT,
Ingenuity, and Brilliance scanner families, this provides a
unique approach to managing important factors in patient
care a new era in low energy, low dose, and low injected
contrast imaging.

With Ingenuity DAS

Images in seconds, not minutes

Read sooner. With Ingenuity Core128 , the majority
of factory protocols reconstructed using iDose 4 are
completed in 60 seconds or less. One click from the start
of the scan and youre ready to read at the workstation
or portal.

With iDose , you

control the dial

Philips continually looks for ways to improve image quality while maintaining efficient and
easy-to-use CT scanning features that help users in operation all along the imaging chain.
The first clinical trial of the iDose iterative reconstruction technique was completed in 2009 and
concluded that iDose successfully improves image quality* at low dose. iDose4, the next generation
of iterative reconstruction technique from Philips, gives you control of the dial to personalize image
quality based on your patients needs. When used in combination with the advanced technologies
of the Ingenuity Core128, it provides a unique approach to managing important factors in patient
care low energy, low dose, and low injected contrast imaging.

Metal artifact reduction for orthopedic implants

Artifacts from large metal objects, such as orthopedic
implants, can be problematic in CT diagnosis and
treatment planning, making it difficult to accurately
contour anatomic structures and raising the possibility
that these artifacts will need to be manually compensated
for in the plan.

Without O-MAR

Ingenuity Core128 offers Philips Metal Artifact Reduction

for orthopedic implants (O-MAR) to isolate the effects
of large metal objects in the image data and reduce
associated artifacts. The system automatically produces
conventional images and O-MAR images for clinician
review. This can enhance visualization of critical structures
and target volumes.

What is Imaging 2.0?

Web 2.0 described the evolution of the web from being data-driven
to user-centric, redefining the way people connect, share, and use
the Internet. Imaging 2.0 is doing the same, bringing a new world
of possibilities for radiology. It is about integration and collaboration,
and new levels of patient focus and safety that can help clinicians
achieve what was unimaginable just a few short years ago.

Ready when you are

The Philips MRC Ice X-ray tube is designed
to be one of the most reliable in the industry.
Built for high volume and 24-hour consistency,
there is no waiting for the tube to warm
up before the scan2 and no waiting for it
to cool down. 3


Liquid coolant carries heat away from the MRC Ice

X-ray tube, so Ingenuity Core128 is ready for the
most demanding scans, one right after the other.

In urgent care situations the tube is capable of scanning immediately. It is recommended that the system in general be warmed up using normal procedures.
Assuming routine power usage with 10-minute scan windows.

Options to streamline training and workflow

Ingenuity Core128 reduces training time with intuitive operation
designed to be easy to learn and simple to work with. With the
Results Driven Scanning option, one click takes you from the start
of the scan to ready-to-read at the workstation or on the portal.
Data is entered once during a scan so there is less opportunity for
error and greater opportunity for departmental efficiency.
Automatically in sync
Ingenuity Core128 also offers another level of clinical integration with
its SyncRight option. Philips SyncRight technology provides enhanced
communication between the contrast injector and the scanner, which
simplifies contrast studies and reduces contrast volumes by up to 15%.
SyncRight is designed to deliver the right amount of contrast at the
right time while helping to provide excellent image quality and results
for each contrast-enhanced scan.
