December 5, 2016 — As part of the 2016 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Annual Meeting (RSNA), Philips announced the introduction of IntelliSpace Portal 9.0, the latest edition of its comprehensive, advanced visual analysis and quantification platform. Featuring a suite of multi-modality functions and expanded neurological tools, IntelliSpace Portal 9.0 helps radiologists detect, diagnose and follow up on treatment of diseases, while using new machine learning capabilities to support the physician. The solution addresses radiologists' needs for tools to better support the growing group of patients with brain injuries and neurological disorders such as dementia, strokes, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and multiple sclerosis (MS).

In addition to enhancements in areas such as computed tomography (CT) brain perfusion and magnetic resonance (MR) T2 perfusion, IntelliSpace Portal 9.0 will offer Longitudinal Brain Imaging (LoBI)3, an application for neuro reading to support the evaluation of neurological disorders over time so clinicians can monitor disease progression. Another feature is the inclusion of the NeuroQuant measurement application (from CorTech Labs Inc.) that enables clinicians to quantify brain volume loss.

"As the rates of dementia and neurodegeneration rise, neuroradiologists need advanced tools to help referring physicians treat these challenging cases," said Prof. Leo Wolansky, M.D., acting chief of neuroradiology at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center in the United States. "IntelliSpace Portal 9.0 offers a comprehensive set of robust tools so neuroradiologists can quantify disease expediently."

With more than 70 applications and enhancements of many of the core applications, IntelliSpace Portal 9.0 is a single platform for visual analysis and quantification that spans clinical domains within radiology, including neurology, oncology and cardiology. The platform offers improved advanced 3-D rendering and refined STL export that enable clinicians to print 3-D models with high levels of detail and resolution, to help understand the anatomy. IntelliSpace Portal 9.0 also includes enhancements to a host of core applications from MR cardiac analysis to CT transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) planning, and system enhancements.

IntelliSpace Portal 9.0 offers multimodality clinical applications that can be accessed from any point of the hospital network. The solution can also integrate with typical picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) and hospital information systems to allow for information to be shared broadly, helping drive collaboration across the network. With the enterprise scalability of IntelliSpace Portal 9.0, neurologists can access the power of advanced analysis virtually anywhere across their organization while maintaining consistent applications and user preferences.

Some additional highlights of Version 9.0 of the Portal include:

  • MR Cardiac Enhancements - Facilitates easy visual scoring in various examination contexts. The package enables comprehensive functional volumetric analysis. Enhancements to the package include Whole Heart STL export for 3-D printing, and enhanced workflow and batch tools; and
  • CT Spectral Applications - Philips IntelliSpace Portal Spectral Diagnostic suite of clinical applications has been optimized for the viewing and analysis of spectral data sets from the IQon Spectral CT scanner. Users can access the application they need when and where they need, virtually anywhere in their enterprise. The tools help gain a comprehensive overview of each patient, quantify quickly and diagnose with confidence.

IntelliSpace Portal 9.0, part of Philips IntelliSpace integrated portfolio of healthcare informatics solutions, was showcased at the RSNA Annual Meeting, taking place Nov. 27 - Dec. 1 in Chicago.

While electronic medical record systems have helped consolidate most patient data into one location, medical imaging IT systems has proved to be more difficult to replicate by large EMR vendors. This has made room in the market for third-party radiology IT vendors that allow easy integration with the larger EMRs like Epic and Cerner. This image shows Agfa's enterprise imaging system, leveraging its ability to be accessed anywhere with internet connection and pull images from radiology and surgery.
