It also comes with SmartCT, a 3D imaging solution that guides users through image acquisitions and provides 3D visualization and measurement tools for interacting with images on the tableside touch screen module. These tools can be used in a range of clinical settings, including neurology, oncology and cardiovascular procedures.

The company’s ICARUS learning academy will be integrated into the hospital’s training and education program to better train medical and nursing staff. Radiology teams will be able to train individually or in groups through a combination of digital and face-to-face teaching methods, regardless of their location. Training for all employees will be geared toward propelling radiology workforce throughput and overcoming challenges that impede the ability to provide patients with high-quality care.

United Imaging: New 80-slice CT in 2 weeks w/Software Upgrades for Life

For those who need to move fast and expand clinical capabilities -- and would love new equipment -- the uCT 550 Advance offers a new fully configured 80-slice CT in up to 2 weeks with routine maintenance and parts and Software Upgrades for Life™ included.


Along with University Hospital Brandenburg an der Havel, Philips is also supplying CT, MR and patient monitoring solutions to the IJsselland Hospital in the Netherlands, as part of a 12-year agreement signed last month.

The company will help IJsselland Hospital expand its existing home monitoring partnership for patients with heart failure and COPD and provide clinical and patient decision support software for remote health and care programs. The partnership is part of an effort to innovate, digitize and optimize care.

“As a regional hospital, we want to keep up with these developments to provide the best care for our patients. We have chosen Philips as a technology partner to jointly develop the hospital of the future,” said Albert van Wijk, chairman of IJsselland Hospital’s board of directors.
