August 28, 2015 — Philips Healthcare is showcasing its latest cardiology solutions at the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Congress 2015. Solutions include Heart ModelA.I., EchoNavigator and IntelliSpace Cardiovascular, that connect people and technology with care protocols to assist diagnosis, guide treatment and enable home care.

The vendor said its products offer a holistic approach to cardiovascular care, featuring digital tools and capabilities for image guided therapy and ultrasound, intravascular imaging and sensing, treatment, patient monitoring, healthcare IT and advanced software applications driving advancements in predictive and precision medicine in cardiovascular care.

"Holistic cardiovascular care looks beyond the disease to understand what really matters for all involved along the patient journey," said Bert van Meurs, general manager, image-guided therapy for Philips. "Our patient-centric solutions enable novel and effective minimally invasive procedures to diagnose and treat cardiovascular disease. These solutions also support physicians when assessing disease states, help decide and guide the right treatment and confirm whether interventions were successful. In addition, our recent acquisition of Volcano will increase our capabilities to deliver this support to both physicians and patients."

Philips' newest ultrasound technology cardiac tool, HeartModelA.I., brings automated 3-D views, robust reproducibility and advanced quantification to cardiac ultrasound imaging, will make its European debut.
