- Supplier: Philips
Philips showcased 15 new products and features at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America in Chicago last week.
By 2012, Philips has introduced nearly 50 new products and upgrades as part of its new approach to radiology - Imaging 2.0 - offering fast ways to collaborate and provide economic value to healthcare providers.
Since the introduction of Imaging 2.0 in 2010, Philips has worked in partnership with clinicians and healthcare stakeholders to help solve healthcare concerns and clinical challenges.
New products displayed at the RSNA included the latest version of its IntelliSpace Portal. This is an advanced visualization solution for the analysis and interpretation of medical images designed to simplify the way radiologists work with the vast amounts of imaging data sets.
Also, iPatient, which is an advanced platform for its family of CT and PET/CT scanners.
“It puts patients in control of personalised workflow built to simplify the use of iterative reconstruction techniques, and new methods that facilitate patient-specific dose management,” a Philips statement said.
“With its SyncRight feature, iPatient allows for easy and efficient communication between the CT system and the injector in order to deliver appropriate contrast dose and consistent image quality.”
The company also announced that dStream broadband technology - which Philips introduced with its Ingenia MR systems - will now become available for the majority of the installed base of Philips Achieva and Intera MR systems.
It launched Ingenia MR-OR solution for intraoperative neurosurgery and the next generation of MicroDose with single-shot spectral imaging, a full-field digital mammography system which brings the potential of non-invasive spectral imaging to clinical practice without exposing women to additional examinations or X-ray radiation.
“Increased emphasis on sophisticated diagnostic care has put radiologists and their specialty front and centre in healthcare,” said Philips chief executive Deborah DiSanzo.
“We are working to combine ideas with expertise, innovation and funding, to create solutions that make a real difference to radiologists and their care teams, patients and their loved ones through meaningful innovations.”
