Philips Highlights Future Innovations at RSNA 2012 Transformation Lab
Date:11/28/2012

CHICAGO, Nov. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Underscoring its commitment to providing innovations that transform care now and into the future, Royal Philips Electronics (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA) highlights the company's future innovations at the 98th annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago, November 25-29. In addition to showcasing the existing solutions within its Imaging 2.0 portfolio, Philips is offering a preview of solutions that aim to improve the future of healthcare delivery.

Since the launch of Imaging 2.0, Philips has continued to develop solutions that enable clinicians to provide quality, personalized care for their patients more efficiently and with better outcomes. With each new innovation, developed with customer insights, Philips collaborates with users to further improve upon its solutions with the goal of transforming the future of healthcare for clinicians and patients.

"At Philips, we understand that the healthcare landscape is constantly changing and that radiologists require advanced solutions that allow them to adapt to these changes," said Gene Saragnese, chief executive officer of Imaging Systems at Philips. "We believe that investment in future innovations is vital, and therefore continue to collaborate with clinicians to help them bring the best care possible to their patients."

For the first time at RSNA, Philips is offering all attendees a tour of the "Transformation Lab," a section of Philips' RSNA booth that provides a preview of selected Philips innovative works-in-progress. Some of the future solutions that will be featured include:

  • Next Generation Radiology Reporting and Collaboration: Medical imaging is being used in the diagnosis and treatment of an increasing number of patients and diseases, putting greater demands on radiology departments. Philips is developing technologies for the next-generation radiology reporting system that aim to help radiologists pull together relevant patient data, decide on appropriate imaging protocols, liaise with radiology technicians and write up reports and communicate with referring physicians, allowing them to spend more time doing what they do best – analyzing images.
  • Anatomical Intelligence: In order to speed up radiology workflows, Philips is integrating its advanced organ modeling technology into clinical application prototypes that uses a patient-specific model with the goal of allowing radiologists to navigate and manipulate 3D images in terms of anatomies rather than X/Y/Z coordinates. This new technology aims to enable radiologists to rapidly navigate images and quickly make clinically relevant measurements. Currently available for 3D heart models, Philips' objective is to eventually adapt this technology for all major organs of the body and to introduce anatomical intelligence in all clinical applications.
