CHICAGO, Dec. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, at the 99th Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago, Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA) showcases its EPIQ premium ultrasound system that combines an exceptional level of clinical performance, advanced system intelligence and intuitive design, and its AlluraClarity interventional X-ray system that provides high quality imaging for a comprehensive range of clinical procedures, achieving excellent visibility at low X-ray dose levels for patients of all sizes. These innovations complement Philips' comprehensive radiology product portfolio that delivers enhanced clinical performance, improves patient experience and helps drive economic value.

"At Philips we are dedicated to delivering meaningful innovations that address some of the key challenges that health systems and hospitals are facing today," said Deborah DiSanzo, CEO, Philips Healthcare. "Only by working closely with clinicians and customers can we develop potentially game changing products like our EPIQ ultrasound system and AlluraClarity interventional X-ray system – imaging solutions that enable clinicians to provide the best possible care to patients from diagnosis to treatment and after care. This is how we create the future of healthcare."

With the introduction of EPIQ and AlluraClarity into the U.S. market, and the worldwide debut of Philips' IQon Spectral CT and Vereos PET/CT also unveiled today at RSNA 2013, Philips is delivering imaging innovation to enable early and more accurate treatments for all types of patients. 

EPIQ: Premium ultrasound featuring nSIGHT Imaging Philips' EPIQ ultrasound system delivers extraordinary image resolution and detail along with exceptional levels of information. It was designed to meet the needs of today's ultrasound department, providing enhanced clinical information and faster, more consistent exams that are easier to perform. With EPIQ, clinicians can get the diagnostic information they need to make a confident diagnosis.

The Philips proprietary n SIGHT Imaging architecture introduces a totally new approach to forming ultrasound images, offering an exceptional level of clinical performance. Unlike conventional systems that form the image line by line, n SIGHT creates images with optimal resolution down to the pixel level.

"EPIQ allows my staff to acquire outstanding images and deliver a more accurate, definitive diagnosis, ultimately leading to better outcomes for our patients," said Michelle L. Robbin, M.D., MSME, FACR, Chief, Ultrasound, and Professor, Body Imaging Section, University of Alabama (UAB) School of Medicine. "EPIQ is helping us deliver the best care possible to all patients, even those traditionally difficult to image, such as patients with high body mass index where ultrasound has previously been inconclusive."

EPIQ is also the first product to provide whole organ volume imaging (3D Panoramic) comprehension, quantifiable and uncut information in one volume, making it the only 3D contrast system for GI among leading ultrasound manufacturers to provide real-time 3D contrast data for dynamic clinical assessment.
