    Toward a model of precision medicine

     

    Cancer incidence and related healthcare costs continue to grow while the complexity in cancer care is continuously growing. Tumor characterization, sub-typing and staging is becoming more complex. Continuously expanding therapy options. Increasing diversity of medical specialties involved, Growing amounts of disparate data across many different systems

     

    There is a big need to diagnose and treat patients in efficient settings with a focus on the best care. The key? You must combine using the best imaging and therapy capabilities, patient experience and lowest cost with the goal to improve patient outcomes. 

     

    Philips helps to make this possible with tools and services for accurate decision-making imaging, fast supporting right decision-making tools and enable targeted, patient-specific therapy. With Philips, the future of personalized oncology is within your reach.

    Characterizing tumor and cancer subtype

    The challenge

    Cancer care is moving towards optimal, personalized treatment choices that are tailored to individual patients. All of the information from disciplines in cancer diagnostics and genomics come together to inform the decisions made by cancer specialists during the diagnostic phase. Digitization of healthcare enables all diagnostic data (from radiology, pathology and in-vitro diagnostic tests) becoming available in a digital form.

     

    At Philips, we enable characterization and staging a patient’s disease confidently by reducing under- and over-staging.
