Medical charity Cobalt has acquired a 3.0T Ingenia static MRI system from Philips UKI.  It is equipped with the Philips MRI in-bore experience that is designed to enhance patient co-operation and workflow.

Cobalt ceo Peter Sharpe said: “Cobalt has been working with Philips since 1994, including on the first 1.5T mobile MRI and the first high field open MRI in the UK.  Currently Cobalt operates eight Philips MRI systems and has dedicated engineering support.  The new scanner means that Cobalt can offer the in-bore experience for patients.

“The scanner will provide a range of services to support the NHS, particularly in the areas of oncology and dementia.”
