Helping you focus on what’s important – your patient


Today patients with spine disease have more treatment options, including minimally invasive spinal fusion procedures. During these procedures, advanced real-time image guidance is critically important in helping you get a better understanding of the anatomical structure and define the correct pathway for device placement.


Philips Spine suite helps you focus on what’s important – your patient. This state-of-the-art hybrid operating room enables you to perform fast, accurate, and simplified procedures. It provides exceptional, large field-of-view 2D and 3D images that boost confidence and enhance precision for the full spectrum of spine procedures. From pedicle screw placement and vertebroplasties to complex spinal fusions. The FlexMove option provides greater movement flexibility so you do not have to move the table during imaging or surgery. In-room XperCT imaging removes the need for post-op CT verification.

Complex spine deformities and disorders


Innovative new devices and imaging technologies are supporting surgeons in performing minimally invasive procedures, such as spinal fusion, to treat complex spine disorders. A key challenge when performing a complex spine fusion is to accurately join the vertebrae without affecting nearby nerves, muscles, ligaments, and other structures which may cause pain and discomfort. To standardize this fast evolving landscape, the medical community and manufacturers are working towards the creation of evidence to answer clinical dilemmas and define novel guidelines. Philips participates actively to further standardize spine procedures with the aim of reducing procedure time and improving outcomes.


FlexMove – workflow without compromise

As the name suggests, FlexMove is a versatile ceiling mounted C-arm option that is designed to improve flexibility during spine procedures. It can be brought in from any side of the table for excellent patient access. All movements are fully motorized, and the system can be easily moved in and out without disrupting staff or equipment. Position memory brings the system automatically back to a previous position, such as a pedicle screw entry point, to save time. This positioning flexibility means you do not need to move the operating table during imaging or surgery, which can promote smooth and efficient spinal procedures.

Philips Azurion Hybrid OR solutions featuring FlexMove

Our Azurion Hybrid OR solutions provide an innovative surgical care environment that offers exceptional procedural flexibility and ease of use, while meeting the highest standards for surgical infection control and hygiene. The Azurion imaging system is mounted on our unique FlexMove ceiling suspension so it can be smoothly merged into OR processes. Treatment teams can easily move the X-ray system wherever needed, and work in their preferred way. Interventional tools and an unique user experience help users quickly and confidently perform a broad range of open and minimally invasive procedures.

Hybrid OR solutions featuring FlexMove
FlexMove is a ceiling mounted C-arm option that offers the maneuverability of a mobile C-arm and the power of an angiography system to enhance visualization of spinal anatomy. The positioning flexibility of the C-arm means the anesthesiologist can stand at the head of the table, and team members can stand in their preferred working positions at both sides of the table to perform diverse procedures.

ClarityIQ technology – clinically proven

Our novel ClarityIQ X-ray imaging technology provides superb image quality at significantly lower dose across clinical areas, patients, and operators1.

FlexVision Pro

TSM and FlexVision Pro
View and control all system inputs including MRI data via the PACS at table side to save time and unnecessary walking in and out of the sterile field.

Zero Dose Positioning to reduce dose

Zero Dose Positioning
This feature helps you manage dose by allowing you to pan the table, change table height or move the X-ray system on Last Image Hold to determine the new center position. This helps you prepare your next run without using fluoroscopy.

What your peers say about our spine surgery solutions

Andreas Seekamp, MD
I had expected the operations to take a little longer in the Hybrid OR, but they are, in fact, shorter.”

Director of the Orthopedic and Emergency Surgery clinic, University Medical Center Schleswig-Holstein, Kiel, Germany

Clinical solutions for spine deformities and disorders

Peripheral artery disease clinical solutions
Our Spine suite provides dedicated tools that offer remarkably detailed insights during each phase of a procedure as you decide, guide, treat, and confirm.
XperCT 3D - Confirm phase

XperCT – fast, high-resolution intra-operative cone-beam CT

Superb image quality with very fast imaging protocols

We developed dedicated acquisition protocols for spine procedures that deliver fast cone-beam CT scans with the goal of increasing image quality.


Reduced metal artifacts

Visualization around metal objects often poses challenges, making it difficult to assess anatomy in the vicinity of metal implants. For these cases XperCT provides a unique Metal Artifact Reduction filter, which significantly reduces the scattering artifacts in cone-beam CT.
