Sep 20, 2018 -- Amsterdam, the Netherlands and San Diego, California – At the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) annual meeting (September 21 – 25, San Diego, California), Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, is showcasing its latest solutions in interventional cardiology. These solutions combine imaging systems, planning and navigation software, and specialized diagnostic and therapeutic devices, helping clinicians conduct procedures that are fast, efficient and personalized.

Philips will showcase its latest innovations in image-guided therapy, addressing key concerns of cardiologists such as complex percutaneous coronary interventions (complex PCI), which account for a significant proportion of PCI procedures that treat the narrowing of coronary arteries. Azurion, Philips’ next generation image-guided therapy platform, provides clinicians with the control needed to perform efficient procedures. CoreVision, which can be seamlessly combined with Azurion, is the only system that intelligently integrates X-ray angiography imaging, IVUS, and iFR in a single view for the high level of diagnostic precision needed for today’s increasingly complex procedures. Combining Philips’ imaging systems, planning and navigation, and smart devices, physicians can take advantage of an integrated solution that supports improved care for complex PCI patients.

Latest advances in cardiac ultrasound for interventional procedures
This year at TCT, Philips will also showcase the recently-introduced EPIQ CVxi interventional cardiovascular ultrasound system. Specifically designed for use in the cath lab, the EPIQ CVxi with EchoNavigator streamlines communication between the interventional cardiologist and the echocardiographer during complex interventional exams, improving patient care and enhancing workflow. Combining live ultrasound and X-ray information into one intuitive view, EchoNavigator helps interventional cardiologists oversee procedures along with the location of key anatomical structures. In addition, MultiVue provides more flexibility when using 3D during diagnostic or interventional procedures as the clinician can see multiple views at once.
