Philips Launches CardioMD IV Cardiac SPECT Solution at ASNC 2017

CardioMD IV enables cardiac imaging with improved workflow in a small footprint

Philips Launches CardioMD IV Cardiac SPECT Solution at ASNC 2017

September 15, 2017 — Philips highlighted its newest solution for nuclear cardiology, CardioMD IV, at the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology’s Annual Scientific Session, Sept. 14-17 in Kansas City, Mo. CardioMD IV leverages single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) technology, advanced Astonish reconstruction and cardiac quantification software to deliver diagnostic confidence and improved workflow for cardiac imaging. 

The system is tailored to address the most pressing challenges in cardiac imaging today. It was designed to fit the clinical and economic needs of healthcare institutions. With a small footprint, CardioMD IV will fit in virtually any existing camera room without requiring costly renovations. Its patient-friendly design allows for greater positioning flexibility, and half-time cardiac imaging with Astonish reconstruction improves workflow efficiency without sacrificing image quality. Philips’ advanced visualization and analysis platform, IntelliSpace Portal, provides enterprise-wide access to the latest cardiac SPECT quantification, review and reporting applications while enabling effective collaboration among cardiologists and referring physicians.
