May 15, 2012


Boston Scientific Corp. and Philips Healthcare announced a collaboration in May 2012 enabling Philips to sell Boston Scientific Imaging equipment in connection with its Allura Xper catheterization lab angiography imaging systems in territories worldwide.

The iLab intravascular ultrasound imaging (IVUS) system serves as a versatile platform for utilizing Boston Scientific's imaging catheters. The iLab System features high image quality and allows physicians the ability to choose from a variety of imaging catheters for coronary, peripheral and intracardiac applications. The system is compatible and can be integrated with all major angiography X-ray systems, including the Philips Allura Xper system. This agreement gives Philips the ability to offer customers an integrated imaging solution that is compatible with current and next-generation Boston Scientific imaging catheters.

The collaboration will enable seamlessly integrated interventional solutions.
