RaySafe helps you avoid unnecessary radiation

RaySafe solutions are designed to minimize the need for user interaction, bringing unprecedented simplicity & usability to the X-ray room. We're committed to establishing a radiation safety culture wherever technicians & medical staff encounter radiation.

“There is tremendous opportunity not only to improve lab efficiency through increased access to information and images that eliminate the chance of materials being lost, broken, or misfiled, but also to dramatically enhance patient care through the deployment of advanced algorithms,” Dr. Jeff Golden, chair of pathology at BWH, said in a statement.

As part of this partnership, digital pathology centers will be established and structured around major themes in the digital pathology space, including user interface design, analytics, education, and economics of digital pathology.

MGH and BWH personnel will work with Philips engineers and scientists on executing projects in those new centers.

The health systems will leverage the Philips IntelliSite Pathology Solution to encourage collaboration between pathologists and access expert opinions on patient cases. They will also develop teaching and training sets to educate pathologists worldwide on digital pathology.

The IntelliSite Pathology Solution is the first and only digital pathology solution marketed for primary diagnostic use in the U.S., according to Philips. It’s interoperable with various information systems and is equipped with an ultra-fast pathology slide scanner and an image management system and display.

The solution helps pathologists manage, scan, store, present, review and share information between lab networks. As a result, it helps labs and health systems improve the speed and quality of diagnoses.
