Our featured technologies:

Philips Ultrasound solutions:


EPIQ CVx is a dedicated cardiology ultrasound solution which brings significant advances to help address the strains on overburdened staff and healthcare systems. With the EPIQ CVx your work can benefit from fast and consistent exams that are easy to perform, and enhanced clinical information from each scan, giving you a level of confidence, even for technically difficult patients. 

“Truly Live” 3D Echo

From transthoracic to transesophageal echo, bring Live 3D to the forefront of your diagnostic and interventional echo research and clinical practice.


The dedicated EPIQ CVxi for the cath lab with the new integrated EchoNavigatorA.I., gives you control of live fusion imaging directly from the system, streamlining communication between the echocardiographer and the interventional cardiologist.

Live 3D Transesophageal Imaging on Affiniti

Now available on the Philips Affiniti ultrasound platform – Philips Live 3D TEE provides increased visibility during guided procedures. Philips xMATRIX Live 3D TEE was launched in 2007, and since has been proven in over a million exams and procedures.

Image guided therapy devices:

iFR Co-registration

iFR Co-registration allows you to precisely target your therapy and have confidence in your treatment decision by providing lesion-specific functional assessments directly on the angiogram and enabling virtual stent placement with post-PCI physiology estimates.

iFR Outcomes

Philips’ hyperemia-free iFR provides physicians with a faster and easier method of lesion assessment while delivering a better patient experience. iFR is backed by the largest physiology studies of all time (DEFINE FLAIR and iFR-SWEDEHEART) with more than 4500 patients, and results that show that an iFR-guided strategy is more cost effective than an FFR-guided strategy, with a 10% cost reduction per patient resulting in an average savings of $896 through 1-year follow-up.*


CoreVision advanced imaging solution helps you overcome uncertainty and treat confidently. CoreVision is the only system that offers the combination of advanced angiography, advanced IVUS, and advanced physiological imaging for the high level of diagnostic insight needed for today’s increasingly complex patient populations.

Refinity ST

Refinity ST is Philips’ next generation rotational IVUS catheter designed to meet the needs of your most complex PCI cases. The platform provides exceptional deliverability crossing challenging lesions with ease, 5F guide compatibility enabling radial access procedures, and 45 MHz high resolution imaging providing clear crisp images for vessel and lesion assessment.

Specialty coronary products for Complex PCI

Prepare to succeed in complex PCI with procedural guidance and vessel preparation tailored to the patient’s needs. Philips provides a portfolio of specialty coronary diagnostic and therapy devices that enable safe and effective treatment for a wide variety of complex PCI cases.

Image guided therapy systems:


Philips Azurion is the next-generation image guided therapy platform that allows you to easily and confidently perform procedures with a unique user experience, helping you optimize your lab performance and provide superior care. Azurion has been developed over a number of years in close collaboration with our clinical partners to ensure workflow solutions that meet the continuing demands of the interventional lab.


Fusing live X-ray and live echo. Greater insight and confidence in finding and treating the problem through SmartFusion. EchoNavigator automatically fuses live 3D TEE and live X-ray in real time so you can intuitively guide your device in the 3D space more quickly.

Dynamic Coronary Roadmap & IFR Roadmap

Dynamic Coronary Roadmap, a Philips-exclusive technology, creates a motion-compensated, real-time view of coronary arteries. A highlighted coronary angiogram is superimposed on a live 2D fluoroscopic image, creating a colored roadmap that adjusts automatically, providing continuous visual feedback on positioning of wires and catheters.


iFR Roadmap, a Philips exclusive technology and an extension of Dynamic Coronary Roadmap, provides an automated, real-time, co-registration of the iFR physiological measurement with its anatomical location on the Dynamic Coronary Roadmap.  Using the Philips Verrata/Verrata Plus pressure wires, you can easily integrate iFR measurements into your daily PCI routines.

Cardiology informatics:

Xper Information Management with Xper Flex Cardio: A suite of cath lab data management solutions designed to enhance interventional cardiology workflow


IntelliSpace Cardiovascular: A single cardiovascular workspace to help manage patient care


IntelliSpace Portal: Advanced visualization, delivered directly to your IntelliSpace Cardiovascular workspace


IntelliSpace Enterprise Edition: A premium managed service offering for your clinical informatics suite
