Philips Healthcare (Booth 647) is presenting MR tools to visualize cardiac and vascular structures, which include analysis, quantification and reporting that can be reviewed with Xcelera multimodality information management solution.

For CT, Philips is presenting CT Comprehensive Cardiac Analysis (CCA) with 3D-QCA, which can perform an evaluation of the coronary arteries and advanced ventricular functional analysis. CT can map the coronary tree with images.

The Philips cath lab experience will present customers with interaction between image acquisition and visualization technologies, hemodynamic monitoring and charting, cath lab reporting, statistical reporting, and multimodality image access, viewing and storage. The connected solution features the third-generation Allura Xper FD family, Xper Information Management and Xcelera multimodality information management solution.  

New at TCT 2008, the CX50 CompactXtreme ultrasound system brings technologies from the Philips iE33 system to a compact form. The CX50 can be hand-carried or wheeled on its ergonomic cart into the procedure room to perform transthoracic or transesophageal echo.

For cath labs performing both cardiac and vascular interventions, Philips is highlighting clinical tools like Allura 3D coronary angiography and StentBoost, as well as several new Allura Xper FD 20 features including a larger, tableside module with the ability to download images or runs to a USB stick. The exclusive DoseAware display extends x-ray dose management to the physician’s field of view.

Also for the cath lab, the new Xper Table features automatic position control to increase accuracy and speed workflow, while the Xper Cradle, designed for the hybrid (OR/cath) labs, allows interventionalists or surgeons to roll the patient while keeping the region of interest in isocenter.

To address interventional and surgical planning for structural heart conditions, Philips is presenting views of the heart with live 3D TEE on the iE33 system, which provides live 3D images of structural heart pathology, such as mitral valves, aortic valves, interatrial septum and the left atrial appendages and many of the devices used during percutaneous procedures.

Structural heart defects also can be identified utilizing cardiac CT data. The iCT can obtain cardiac images in 2 beats of the heart. Because of the speed, power and coverage of the Brilliance iCT, physicians may be able to see more clearly structural heart defects, such as the valves and leaflets, mediastinal structures and ventricular septal defects, and surrounding organs, such as the lungs.

Philips is premiering its Cardiovascular Information Management System (CVIS), which is able to collect and aggregate data relative to the cardiac care of patients, and allows for a patient-centric presentation of the data.
