ITEA, the EUREKA cluster program supporting innovative, industry-driven, pre-competitive R&D projects in the area of Software-intensive Systems & Services (SiSS) today announced that Philips has won two awards for its impact on the development and adoption of image guided interventions in the field of cardiology and oncology.
Together with the other project partners, Philips created new and improved imaging procedures, smart tools and an integrated systems architecture in compliance with international standards. These have been designed to enhance the efficiency, ease of use, and accuracy of minimally invasive procedures.
“I am convinced that the worlds of surgical procedures and image-guided minimally invasive treatments will ultimately converge, enabled by innovations in real-time imaging systems, smart devices and software,” said Bert van Meurs, Business Group Leader Image Guided Therapy at Philips. “This will benefit both patients and care providers. We are very proud to receive these awards for the work we have carried out with our partners, contributing to improving the quality and efficiency of healthcare.”
