Philips Introduces Veradius Neo Mobile C-arm With Flat Detector to Enhance Management of Challenging Patients and Procedures

ANDOVER, Mass., Nov. 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Royal Philips Electronics (AEX: PHI, NYSE: PHG) today introduced the Philips Veradius Neo mobile C-arm with flat detector to allow surgeons to more easily and precisely handle challenging patients and procedures. Designed in collaboration with surgeons from around the world, Veradius Neo features a completely new C-arc geometry. This optimized geometry is specially designed to accommodate even obese patients with increased maneuverability. Veradius Neo also offers flexible dose management settings and advanced flat detector imaging technology to support surgeons in performing the latest image-guided surgical interventions to help improve patient care.

"Veradius Neo is truly the product of a collaborative process that included the input of many surgeons and technologists from around the world," said Bert van Meurs, senior vice president and general manager, Interventional X-ray, for Philips Healthcare. "With customers' input, particularly their hands-on evaluation of early designs, we've developed a mobile C-arm that is easy to position, even for very large patients."

The Veradius Neo is the latest in a long line of Philips innovations in interventional imaging that began with the commercial introduction of the world's first mobile C-arm in 1955. Veradius Neo is also Philips second generation of flat detector-based mobile C-arms, building on the considerable success of the Philips Veradius system, introduced in 2009.

Exceptional access and easy positioning for orthopedic procedures
Orthopedic surgery can present difficult positioning challenges. The Veradius Neo addresses these unique demands with a new, optimized C-arc geometry that provides more room for orthopedic surgeons to work and to position around patients.

Mobile C-arms are repositioned many times during most procedures in order to deliver visualization for image-guided interventions. To simplify communication between surgical team members and make it easy to quickly move to a requested position, the Veradius Neo now has a color coded geometry. Once in the desired position, the system's advanced flat detector technology provides high-quality images without the distortion that is inherent in images produced by previous generation image intensifier technology. Surgeons can use these undistorted images to help place screws and other devices with precision.

Exceptional image quality and intuitive workflow for vascular procedures
Minimally invasive procedures, such as endovascular repairs, are performed by surgeons using small stents and other devices that can be difficult to visualize. To provide adequate visualization during a procedure, a mobile C-arm must be able to produce high contrast images of dynamic anatomy. The flat detector on the Veradius Neo has a greater dynamic range than older image intensifier technology, meeting these high requirements by providing high contrast digital subtraction angiography (DSA) runs and roadmap guidance.

Veradius Neo's advanced X-ray generation technology allows distortion-free visualization of dynamic anatomy in challenging procedures like transaortic aneurysm repair. During the vascular cases, the surgeon is in full control, ensuring a seamless vascular workflow.

Range of dose management features
X-ray dose remains a concern for the surgical environment for general procedures and, in particular, long, minimally invasive procedures. Veradius Neo incorporates a full range of dose management features that allow low X-ray dose for lengthy minimally invasive procedures, while providing high-quality images.

Philips beam filters enhance the quality of X-ray while the monoblock design results in sharp pulses to support excellent dose efficiency. The easily removable grid on the flat detector makes it possible to visualize small anatomy and extremities with exceptional image quality.
