Royal Philips has installed its advanced digital diagnostic and interventional neurovascular imaging solutions in the new Central Acute Services Building at Westmead Hospital in Sydney, Australia.

The building now features Philips’ advanced medical imaging technology, including Australia’s first two Philips Magnetic Resonance – Ingenia MR-OR – intraoperative systems.

Part of a sterile dual-room concept, the MR-OR systems will offer MR imaging during neurosurgery.

The new technology will further improve the collaboration between surgeons and radiologists to deliver greater speed, efficiency and clinical confidence.

Philips’ new technology provides up-to-date MR information at any time during surgical procedures that will help clinicians to make real-time adjustments to treatment during these procedures.

For critical neuro cases such as stroke and acute trauma, where fast diagnosis and treatment are essential, these combined capabilities help to optimise patient outcomes.

Philips also installed Image Guided Therapy System – Azurion biplane at the new Central Acute Services Building to allow clinicians to perform an array of cardiac and vascular interventions.

The image-guided therapy platform offers clinicians a user experience that allows them to optimise lab performance and workflows to suit their personal preferences and make fast, informed decisions to provide superior care for their patients.

Philips Australia and New Zealand Matt Moran managing director said: “It is very encouraging to see public health departments adopting technologies and workflows aligned to a more sustainable and robust healthcare future.

“The Westmead Health Precinct is a leading example of what is possible in terms of next-generation health delivery.”

In January this year, Philips and France-based Rennes University Hospital signed a five-year technology and innovation partnership supporting diagnostic, interventional imaging and patient monitoring and management.
