What Is A Digital MRI?

Philips unique digital broadband MR architecture, dStream samples the MR signal directly in the RF coil at the patient. The fiber-optic transmission of digital broadband data from the coil to the image reconstructor removes potential noise influences typical with analog pathways. The 18 kW High-performance solid-state RF power amplifier affords the energy necessary to manage even very large patients. Both RF transmit and reception are synchronized by the dSync Digital network architecture, that brings fast loopback times and high resolution wave form shaping to facilitate the development of new MR methods and applications.
