Philips Medical Systems and Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) have formed a research collaborative to co-develop electrophysiology (EP) catheterization labs.

 The initiative will bring together MGH's diagnostic and treatment center for clinical EP and Philips' flat detector system for cardiovascular x-ray technology. The research will focus on the development of new technologies to treat patients suffering from heart rhythm disorders.

 The EP cath lab is designed to reduce procedure time through advanced imaging capabilities, less radiation exposure, and integration and accessibility of data.
