Phillips Unveils New Medical Tech at Healthcare Convention

Royal Phillips has its hands on quite a few different technologies across a range of different business sectors. One area in which the company recently re-dedicated itself is in the medical technology innovation field. 

In order to show some of its top solutions, the company presented at the Radiological Society of America (RSNA) convention in which the company displayed some of its existing technologies such as its Imaging 2.0 Portfolio. The company also talked about several solutions it is still developing that will improve the future of healthcare delivery and the healthcare technology field in general.

 Phillips’ crown jewel in this particular sector is definitely the Imaging 2.0 solution, but the company has continued to work with clinicians and patients in order to continue improving its offering. 

The company’s ultimate goal is to transform the whole of medical technology for the better, using these kinds of solutions as the first steps toward that goal.

"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."

This year at RSNA, Phillips gave people a firsthand look at its Transformation Lab. Among those innovations it featured at the convention was a Next-Generation Radiology Reporting and Collaboration solution, and a program referred to as Anatomical Intelligence. This, in particular, will give doctors a leg up because they will be able to manipulate 3D images by using their actual anatomies, as opposed to specific coordinates on a human body that has been broken down like a map.
