EuroEcho-Imaging 2013 : Transforming Cardiology, Together

Join at EuroEcho 2013 to experience how Philips is partnering with doctors, scientists, and customers around the globe to transform cardiology.

On-going collaborations enable to deliver innovative solutions for echocardiography that provide new levels of clinical performance, increase efficiency, accelerate workflow and enhance economic value.

This contributes to creating the future of cardiology – transforming the way you deliver care, save lives, and improve the quality of life for patients with cardiovascular diseases.

Join satellite symposium, imaging campus sessions and for conversations at booth where advances in diagnostic peri-interventional ultrasound and patient centric cardiology informatics featuring shows – “Transforming Cardiology, Together”.

Introducing a new era in premium ultrasound

EPIQ’s breakthrough image quality brings a new level of clinical certainty to ultrasound. Anatomical Intelligence helps you to better assess heart anatomy and function with minimal user interaction. It’s a whole new way of doing echo and supporting your clinical diagnosis, because for the first time an ultrasound system incorporates a rich database of anatomic structural models and utilizes adaptive system intelligence.

Anatomical Intelligence applies adaptive system intelligence and a database of 2D and 3D models of anatomical structures to a patient’s ultrasound data, with the aim of simplifying investigations and providing more reproducible results. Various Anatomical Intelligence tools can be used on the EPIQ system, on off-cart QLAB, as well as on Xcelera workstations.
