Amsterdam, the Netherlands and Chicago, IL, US – Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, today announced agreements with 3D Systems and Stratasys, two global leaders in the 3D printing industry, to help progress patient care and improve the clinician experience. Advanced 3D modeling provides radiologists with additional views to help strengthen anatomical knowledge which could enhance clinical impact in reviewing complex, multi-disciplinary cases.
IntelliSpace Portal 10 is the first advanced visualization platform to feature an embedded 3D modeling application for creating and exporting 3D models intuitively into the clinical workflow. A suite of clinician focused rendering and editing tools from across IntelliSpace Portal 10 applications helps assure the model reflects the true patient anatomy.
Through interfacing with IntelliSpace Portal 10, Philips customers will now have a virtually seamless connection to 3D Systems and Stratasys solutions to expedite 3D printing to create models to help radiologists understand patient anatomy that is difficult to visualize and deliver personalized medicine in the most unique, complex cases. Users can create the model in IntelliSpace Portal 10, save the data and easily transfer the data to the 3D vendors’ solutions without leaving the clinical environment.
“Enhancing how we visualize anatomy and diseases, like cancerous tumors, can profoundly affect the level of personalized care we can deliver to patients,” said Yair Briman, Business Leader Healthcare Informatics at Philips. “By improving 3D printing capabilities by working with 3D Systems and Stratasys, we aim to empower providers to improve care for complex cases and increase diagnostic confidence.”
