    See the KODEX-EPD system in action

    The KODEX-EPD system is a completely new approach to cardiac imaging and mapping that has been developed to address key unmet needs in electrophysiology (EP) procedures today. It is an open system that works with any validated EP catheter. KODEX-EPD uses dielectric imaging technology to visualize highly detailed cardiac anatomy in real-time and helps physicians identify anatomical variations. As a result, KODEX-EPD has the potential to greatly simplify navigation and support personalized ablation planning and delivery, with less dependency on fluoroscopy and contrast media.

     

    Discover how KODEX-EPD can enhance your procedural efficiency and patient care.

    Marlou Janssen - Business Leader Philips EPD Solutions
    We are proud to announce the commercial availability of our newest KODEX-EPD system, with dedicated functionality to support cryoablation procedures. Today, this technology is simplifying navigation, and in the future, it has potential for a wide range of applications, including addressing the key unmet need of real-time therapy assessment – one of the more significant limitations of the current standard of care."

    KODEX-EPD: Introducing dielectric sensing

    See true anatomy without contact or radiation


    The KODEX-EPD system provides real-time high-definition imaging that visualizes true anatomy in real-time during EP procedures, with 3D and panoramic views. No ionizing radiation, contrast medium or contact with the endocardium is required with this technique, and the resulting images show variations in cardiac anatomy – including accessory veins – that might otherwise be missed using conventional mapping systems.

    Personalize therapy based on intraprocedural insights

     

    KODEX-EPD visualizes patient-specific anatomical details with excellent clarity to allow personalized therapy planning and delivery. The system provides accurate navigation using any standard validated catheter. In parallel, it creates continuously updated voltage and activation maps to support efficient collection of additional insights and confirm therapy impact.

    Simplify your workflow for more efficient procedures


    KODEX-EPD promotes predictable and streamlined ablation procedures supported by efficient imaging workflow. Every aspect of the system is designed to save you time during EP procedures. You get detailed 3D anatomy in as little as 3 minutes. The system is easy to set up and offers a streamlined workflow with very little need to correct for physiological distortions or patient movement, compared to magnetic or impedance-based systems.

    Optimize your quality of care


    KODEX-EPD offers many ways to support you in optimizing the quality of care for your patients. It is an open platform, so you can choose your preferred ablation method and use any validated EP catheter. Dielectric imaging does not use ionizing radiation and may reduce the need for pre-procedural CT/MRI images. Moreover, the KODEX-EPD system with Occlusion feature provides an indication of pulmonary vein occlusion without X-ray or contrast, by detecting changes in blood flow with the Medtronic Achieve™ Mapping Catheter. *

     

    Want to know more about KODEX-EPD?

     

    * While using KODEX-EPD occlusion functionality, always refer to the applicable cryoballoon technical manual, published literature, and exercise your physician discretion to guide confirmation of pulmonary vein occlusion.

    How a new way of visualizing the heart can help fight atrial fibrillation"

    Bert van Meurs

    Chief Business Leader Image Guided Therapy

    It’s a disease that can leave people fatigued and short of breath even after simple day-to-day activities, and puts them at increased risk of stroke. Atrial fibrillation, or AFib for short, is a heart rhythm disorder that affects an estimated 33.5 million people worldwide – a number that is expected to more than double in the next 30 years as populations age and people live longer. But despite impressive advances in medical technology, AFib is still difficult to treat effectively.

    Atrial fibrillation (AFib) in numbers

    In AFib, the heart beats
    100-175 times a minute,
    compared to a normal range of 60-100
    Heart icon
    33.5 million people worldwide suffer from AFib9

    AFib costs have been estimated at $6 billion a year in the US alone11

    Philips & EPD Solutions - Merging our strengths

    Philips acquires EPD Solutions


    In July 2018, Philips acquired EPD Solutions, an innovator in image-guided procedures for cardiac arrhythmias. The organization is known for its cardiac imaging and navigation system that helps electrophysiologists navigate the heart using 3D imaging, pinpointing the location of catheters for cardiac arrhythmias.

     

    EPD Solutions complements the Philips portfolio of interventional imaging systems, smart catheters, planning and navigation tools, software and services.

     

    Watch the video to learn more about how Philips and EPD Solutions are successfully merging our strengths.
