October 24, 2019 — Following its launch at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) in February, Philips is now bringing its Incisive Computed Tomography (CT) platform to North America. Incisive CT integrates innovations in imaging, workflow and lifecycle management, helping healthcare providers to improve the CT experience for patients and staff, enabling smart clinical decision-making and increasing efficiency.

The Incisive CT helps providers manage operational costs so more attention can be focused on optimizing patient care. With its ‘Tube for Life’ guarantee [1], Philips will replace the Incisive’s X-ray tube – a key component of any CT system – at no additional cost throughout the entire life of the system, potentially lowering operating expenses by an estimated $420,000 [2]. To minimize the cost of obsolescence, the system is available with the Philips Technology Maximizer program, which provides the latest available software and hardware updates as they are released.

In addition to economic value, the Incisive CT incorporates a range of innovations to support high image quality at a low dose, while also enhancing efficiency and workflow. It includes DoseWise Portal, a web-based dose monitoring solution that collects, measures, analyzes and reports patient and staff radiation exposure, assisting in control of quality of care, efficiency, and patient and staff safety. Philips’ new OnPlan patient-side gantry controls let the technologist do more directly from the scanner, such as setup and pre-scan adjustments, minimizing time spent away from the patient.

The Philips Incisive CT will make its North American debut at the 2019 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting, taking place Dec. 1-6 in Chicago.

1. Life of the product is defined by Philips as 10 years. Tube for Life guarantee availability varies by country. Please contact your local Philips sales representative for details.

2. Actual operating costs for customers vary significantly because many variables exist (such as CT make and model, hospital/imaging center size, case mix, system usage). The potential savings identified estimates the avoidance of purchasing replacement tubes over a 10-year useful life of a CT system, based on an average selling price of $140,000 per replacement tube and estimated tube life of 3 years. There can be no guarantee that all customers will achieve this result. Tube for Life guarantee availability varies by country.
