Improving imaging outcomes through a better patient experience

 

The experience and comfort of patients in the imaging suite can have a real and tangible impact on multiple areas of the department. Patient movement, for example, can have a domino effect: non-diagnostic-quality images lead to re-scanning; re-scans delay patient diagnosis and hamper department throughput; and both staff and patient incur stress in the process.

 

By focusing on the people behind the images, we aim to improve the quality of imaging outcomes. Specially designed equipment that makes procedures more comfortable and pleasant for the patient, analytics that properly manage radiation exposure, and advanced technologies that help deliver the right image the first time: All help give patients a more positive feeling about their care and treatment and empower staff to put patients first.

MRI Inbore
MR Patient In-bore experience solution

Positive distractions such as Philips’ multimedia MR Patient In-bore Solution can help patients remain calm and lie still during MR scans. Our in-bore experience gives patients an immersive video experience that distracts and entertains them while they are in the bore. So you can enhance patient cooperation and workflow, and deliver an experience that elevates patient comfort. 

Clinical innovations for a better patient experience

DoseWise radiation dose management

 

Manage the radiation dosage your patients and staff are exposed to with advanced tracking tools, dose management software, and education and training for staff. 

SkyFlow scatter correction algorithm gridless imaging

 

Focus fully on the patient with SkyFlow gridless imaging. This Philips innovation eliminates the need to position a cumbersome grid behind the patient, enabling a fast and smooth workflow, more patient comfort, and excellent image quality at low dose settings. A gridless acquisition workflow with the contrast of a grid image for portable chest exams, keeping your patients comfortable and shortening exam times. 

IQon Spectral CT

 

Because more information is available in a single scan, patients may need fewer diagnostic tests and move into treatment more quickly, providing a positive impact for the organization.  Get multiple layers of retrospective data in a single, low-dose scan, arriving at a confident diagnosis in the first scan and reducing the need for rescans.

Featured case study

 

The leadership team at Children’s Hospital of Georgia (CHOG), an Augusta University Health (AU Health) hospital, knew significant updates were needed to meet the imaging needs of the community and continue to provide best-in-class care to pediatric patients.

CHOG

Challenge

 

The radiology department hadn’t been renovated in 16 years and was struggling with dated—often analog—technology, inefficient workflows and a drab, static environment. 

Approach

 

An in-depth, on-site analysis with input from patients, parents and staff to define clinical, functional and emotional requirements for a new pediatric radiology suite, with a comprehensive set of recommendations and strategic roadmap. 

Result

 

An award-winning radiology department that created a new problem for itself, jokes chief radiographer Lewis Golden: “Now kids cry when they have to leave!”
