Royal Philips Electronics has signed a new memorandum of understanding for a five-year cardiovascular imaging research collaboration with King’s College London.

Under the agreement, Philips and King’s College London’s division of imaging sciences will develop new medical imaging research projects with a particular focus on cardiology and cardiac electrophysiology. One of the key areas of focus will be on combining different imaging technologies, such as x-ray, MRI, ultrasound and CT, to help doctors navigate their way through a patient’s heart during minimally invasive procedures.

The new agreement will also seek to establish new research projects into medical imaging for cardiovascular disease, cardiac arrhythmias and pediatric diseases.
