Philips CT Marketing Philips Healthcare • USA

Philips Healhtcare unveiled new advanced CT and MR solutions at the 2017 European Congress of Radiology (ECR) in Vienna, Austria. In response to today’s increasingly value-based focus in healthcare, Philips’ newest integrated innovations are centered on empowering radiologists to deliver more value across the healthcare continuum.


In an environment that demands balance between patient outcomes and financial performance, many health systems are looking for innovative solutions for the workflow, diagnostic, financial and patient satisfaction challenges they face daily. Radiology is at the center of the majority of healthcare decisions, driving the timely detection and accurate diagnosis and treatment of disease at its earliest stages. Philips’ integrated solutions for radiology are designed to simplify the path to clinical decision-making for better patient outcomes at a lower cost, eliminating stress on the patient and the radiology team in general.


“As health organizations continue to move toward value-based care, they need intelligent solutions to meet the challenges they face in improving outcomes, lowering cost of healthcare delivery and enhancing patient and staff experience,” said Robert Cascella, CEO, Diagnosis and Treatment, Philips. “Responding to the specific needs of our customers during a time of increasing stress on diagnostic imaging teams, Philips is delivering integrated solutions comprising systems, smart devices, software and services that make radiology departments more efficient and more valuable to healthcare institutions and their patients.”


Simplifying the path to clinical decision making

Across radiology modalities, Philips is offering simplified, comprehensive solutions to transform imaging and connect data and information for a fast, efficient, clinical decision-making process.


At ECR this year, Philips unveils a portfolio of value-enhancing, data-driven radiology solutions, including:
  • Access CT, allows cost-conscious healthcare organizations to establish or enhance CT imaging capabilities at an accessible cost for a high return on their investment. Equipped with tools that enable health systems to operate efficiently and economically, Philips Access CT balances performance to deliver broad clinical coverage and a low total cost of ownership.1
  • DoseWise Portal 2.2, a next generation radiation dose management software platform for healthcare providers to record, track and analyze radiation exposure to patients and clinicians. The newest version includes enhanced connectivity and informatics capabilities to address key challenges faced by radiology departments, such as managing dose exposure to ensure patient and staff wellbeing and improving integrated access to patient information to deliver data-driven decision support.


Informatics and services connecting radiology

At ECR, Philips will also demonstrate its recently introduced data-driven intelligent solutions connecting patients, practitioners and processes, including:

  • PerformanceBridge, the new suite of operational performance improvement software and services, delivering actionable insights to help guide decision making in radiology.
  • IntelliSpace Portal 9.0, the latest edition of its comprehensive, advanced visual analysis and quantification platform. Featuring a suite of multi-modality functions and expanded neurological tools, IntelliSpace Portal 9.0 helps radiologists detect, diagnose and follow-up on treatment of diseases, while using new machine learning capabilities to support the physician.


In addition to showcasing its portfolio of intelligent and comprehensive connected radiology solutions, Philips hosted six lunch symposiums throughout the week at ECR. Philips’ symposiums highlighted the key trends, issues and innovations across multiple radiology modalities including MR, CT, Image Guided Therapy, Ultrasound, Digital X-Ray and Mammography.
