  • Significant reduction in time to results using the OnPlan patient-side gantry controls of Philips Incisive CT

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, recently installed the Philips 128 Slice Incisive CT (computed tomography) at Anson Bay Medical Centre, Teluk Intan, a first for Malaysia. The Philips 128 Slice Incisive CT helps imaging departments and healthcare organizations meet their most pressing financial, clinical and operational goals. Driven by advances in image quality, radiation dose management and clinical applications, CT has become one of the cornerstones of imaging and radiology departments.

 

The Incisive CT integrates innovations in imaging, workflow, and lifecycle management, helping healthcare providers to improve the CT experience for patients and staff, enable smart clinical decision-making and increase efficiency. With its industry-first “Tube for Life” guarantee[1], Philips will replace the Incisive’s X-ray tube – a key component of any CT system – at no additional cost throughout the entire life of the system, potentially lowering operating expenses.

 

The innovative imaging system works to optimise the quality of the imaging. The Orthopedics Metal Artifact Reduction (O-MAR) reduces artifacts and improves image quality at surrounding tissue caused by orthopaedic implants.

“We’re always looking at new approaches in expanding Philips’ access in the medical innovation segment. The 128 Slice Incisive CT will be able to uplift and elevate Malaysia’s medical services in the radiology department as it combines data and technology to improve the efficiency and accuracy in diagnosis. Anson Bay Medical Center will be able to produce higher quality images at lower operational costs that will assist healthcare providers and the imaging community on the path towards a value-based healthcare system,” 

Muhammad Ali Jaleel

Country Manager, Philips Malaysia

“With the rapid growth rate of the industry, we’re pleased to be the first hospital in Malaysia to install the 128 Slide Incisive CT system. By reducing the time to obtain results, we are able to further enhance patients’ experience while also delivering results. We will continue supporting and working with Philips and other members in the health technology sector to move the needle towards better care for patients,” 

Dr Matthew Mohan

General Manager Anson Bay Medical Centre

Advances in workflow on the scanner and console, as well as the reading room, help improve the patient and staff experience through every step of the scan. The Incisive CT’s 70 kV scan mode allows for improved low-contrast detectability and confidence at low dose for patients, which can help staff feel confident about managing dose without sacrificing image quality. Incisive CT also seamlessly integrates with Philips IntelliSpace Portal to offer post-processing for complex cases, enabling radiologists to access advanced analysis tools all in one comprehensive system.

 

The Incisive CT also supports a higher level of scanning consistency across the different members of the system’s operating team, with a recent study showing the system reduced examination time by 19%[2]. This was a result from using the OnPlan patient-side gantry controls of the Incisive CT.  OnPlan controls are state-of- the-art tools that provide simplified and intuitive workflow for the technologist. This adaptive intelligence enables consistency from scan to scan for high-quality, fast results.

 

Incisive CT can be combined with Philips’s DoseWise Portal, a web-based dose monitoring solution that collects, measures, analyzes and reports patient and staff radiation exposure, assisting in control of quality of care, efficiency, and patient and staff safety.
