Netherlands-based health technology company Royal Philips has expanded its existing portfolio of solutions with the launch of new image-guided therapy platform Azurion.
Meant for use in the interventional labs, Azurion features an ergonomic design with an easy-to-use user interface and is equipped with new workflow options, performance dashboards, as well as a range of productivity improvement services.
The platform includes 1,000 new components such as an improved flat-panel detector and the firm's new ConnectOS operating system, which enable integration of real-time information from all relevant technologies in the lab.
The components of the platform work together to provide high image quality at ultra-low X-ray dose and real-time image processing on multiple work spots within the lab.
It also allows the clinicians to save time by allowing them to complete different tasks simultaneously through parallel working.
Philips Image Guided Therapy business leader Bert van Meurs said: “Hundreds of Philips developers, engineers and designers and dozens of our clinical partners across the world have collaborated to completely redesign the heart of our portfolio.
"With the launch of our new Azurion platform, which was designed to optimise system integration and lab performance, we can deliver new turnkey solutions that support our customers in maintaining high standards of quality and patient care at predictable costs.”
The Azurion platform features procedure cards, which facilitate pre-programming of routine tasks and user preferences to reduce preparation errors and procedure time.
The interventional tools by Philips such as VesselNavigator for vascular surgery, EchoNavigator for cardiology, EmboGuide for oncology and AneurysmFlow for neuroradiology can be easily integrated into the platform.
