“Royal Philips Electronics has signed a new memorandum of understanding for a five-year cardiovascular imaging research collaboration with King’s College London.
Under the agreement, Philips and King’s College London’s division of imaging sciences will develop new medical imaging research projects with a particular focus on cardiology and cardiac electrophysiology. One of the key areas of focus will be on combining different imaging technologies, such as x-ray, MRI, ultrasound and CT, to help doctors navigate their way through a patient’s heart during minimally invasive procedures.
The new agreement will also seek to establish new research projects into medical imaging for cardiovascular disease, cardiac arrhythmias and pediatric diseases”
I applaud Philip’s strategic move in establishing this key research site, I think it will help them further develop and fine tune their cardiology solutions into leading edge offerings that will truly help institutes improve patient care while (hopefully) reducing cost, in a few years from now.
