March 17, 2017 -- Philips Healthcare is using this week's American College of Cardiology (ACC) meeting to showcase several new cardiac imaging products and technologies.

In ultrasound, Philips is introducing the X8-2t Live 3D transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) transducer, enabling increased resolution and tissue filling in 3D TEE scans, with a new acoustic design that features higher frequencies and bandwidth. The improvement enables clinicians to confidently diagnose surgical pathology in real-time, Philips said.

The company's HeartModel AI anatomical intelligence ultrasound (AIUS) application provides advanced automated quantification, 3D views, enhanced reproducibility, and time-savings for echocardiography quantification tasks. Results of a multicenter study showing the robustness of this application were recently published in the European Heart Journal, Philips said.

Philips IntelliSpace Cardiovascular offers access to advanced cardiovascular informatics applications to combine multimodality images and clinical tools in a single workspace for integrated clinical decision support. The product integrates with IntelliSpace Portal advanced visualization, IntelliSpace ECG data management, and Xper information management cath lab workflow, the company said.

Finally, the company is highlighting its recently launched Azurion image-guided therapy platform designed for a wide range of interventional procedures.
