Boston Scientific, Philips Collaborate to Enhance Imaging Equipment Offering

Collaboration improves access to intra-vascular ultrasound (IVUS) imaging

May 15, 2012 — Boston Scientific Corp. and Philips Healthcare announced a collaboration enabling Philips to sell Boston Scientific Imaging equipment in connection with its Allura Xper catheterization lab 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.

"Boston Scientific is pleased to collaborate with Philips and establish the foundation for an ongoing relationship," said Isaac Zacharias, general manager of Boston Scientific's imaging business.  "As premier providers of medical technology for cardiologists and electrophysiologists, this collaboration is expected to expand the ability of Boston Scientific and Philips to offer integrated solutions that improve ease of use and workflow for our worldwide customers."

"This collaboration is a further step in Philips' strategy to offer seamlessly integrated interventional solutions. Philips works with companies like Boston Scientific to continuously enhance the integrated functioning of our cath labs and further enhance the user experience," said Bert van Meurs, senior vice president and general manager of interventional X-ray for Philips Healthcare.
