Philips showcases new devices at RSNA 2013

9th December 2013

Philips has provided attendees at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting with a glimpse of two advanced new medical imaging systems.

During the symposium in Chicago, the company showcased its fully digital Vereos positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) system and IQon spectral detector-based CT device.

Vereos PET/CT is the first device of its kind to use innovative digital silicon photomultiplier detectors instead of traditional analogue detectors, leading to significant improvements in sensitivity, volumetric resolution and quantitative accuracy.

Meanwhile, the IQon Spectral CT system is the first to be built from the ground up for spectral imaging, using colour to identify the composition of an image without the need for time-consuming protocols.

Gene Saragnese, chief executive officer for imaging systems at Philips Healthcare, said these new device provide radiologists "with exceptional quality and accuracy in imaging at low-dose rates, helping clinicians to get answers the first time around, so that they can deliver accurate and more confident diagnoses to patients".

This comes after the firm showcased devices such as the Epiq ultrasound system at the European Society of Cardiology conference in Amsterdam earlier this year.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-801670301-ADNFCR
