Philips’ BlueSeal Helium-free MR Operations Magnet Wins Best New Technology Solution for Radiology Award


BlueSeal is one of a range of Philips leading health technologies and innovations designed to reduce hospitals’ dependency on natural resources and energy consumption and help meet their sustainability goals. The mission of the MedTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work, and success in a range of health and medical technology categories. Our BlueSeal Magnet not only has the potential to steeply reduce the consumption of helium in the medical industry, but also ensures that on-site operators don’t need to worry about helium-related complications and unpredictability,” said Ruud Zwerink, General Manager MR at Philips. It is supported by an artificial intelligence (AI)* algorithm in its control electronics that enables single-click discharge and re-energization of the magnet from behind the MR console. By accelerating diagnostic workflows and ensuring delivery of the right data at the right time and place to aid precision diagnosis and therapy selection, they help hospitals to alleviate staff shortages, increase efficiency, control costs, and deliver better patient outcomes.
