“Challenges facing us every day are how to maximize our image quality in order to answer diagnostic questions for our patients,” says interventional radiologist Constantino Peña, MD, the Institute’s Medical Director of Vascular Imaging. “In selecting an MRI machine, we wanted state-of-the-art technology that was easy to install, easy to use, and that would be easy on the patient. But most definitely, it had to give us high quality images. That's how we how we settled on the Ingenia Ambition.”
Apart from its excellent imaging capabilities, several other factors ultimately led Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute to select Ingenia Ambition. The industry-first fully sealed BlueSeal magnet contains just seven liters (v. 1,500 liters) of liquid helium and is completely sealed, so helium cannot escape, which helps increase operational efficiency. In addition, its light weight, small footprint and no need for a vent pipe simplify system siting.
According to the Institute’s team, however, the most impressive attribute of Ingenia Ambition is a combination of speed and exceptional quality of imaging, workflow enhancers and patient comfort solutions that have been particularly beneficial in its first six months of operation.
