Philips and VU University Medical Center Amsterdam sign agreement for PET/MR scanner 2011.12.26

Amsterdam, the Netherlands - December 22, 2011 - Royal Philips Electronics (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHI) and the VU University Medical Center Amsterdam (the Netherlands) today announced that they have signed an agreement to install one of Philips' highly innovative Ingenuity TF PET/MR (Time-of-Flight Positron Emission Tomography/Magnetic Resonance) scanners at the center. This advanced imaging modality will help researchers at the VU University Medical Center Amsterdam to investigate new methods of diagnosing and treating cancer and neurological disorders.

Philips‘ Ingenuity TF PET/MR system is one of the new imaging solutions that the company has recently released under the banner Imaging 2.0, an initiative designed to address the stated needs of radiologists and to raise the bar on clinical excellence through greater collaboration and integration, coupled with increased patient focus and enhanced economic value.

Philips and VU University Medical Center Amsterdam sign agreement for PET/MR scanner to advance new approaches to cancer and neurology care


Royal Philips Electronics (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHI) and the VU University Medical Center Amsterdam (the Netherlands) today announced that they have signed an agreement to install one of Philips’ highly innovative Ingenuity TF PET/MR (Time-of-Flight Positron Emission Tomography/Magnetic Resonance) scanners at the center.

Philips Ingenuity TF PET/MR
The Ingenuity TF PET/MR scanner combines the molecular imaging capabilities of PET with the superb soft tissue imaging capabilities of MR imaging.
PET and MR have been used as separate and distinct imaging modalities for several years, with each modality requiring its own suite of rooms to house the necessary equipment.
Philips was the first company in the world to successfully overcome the technical challenges involved in bringing these two modalities into close physical proximity in a whole-body scanner, so that sequential PET and MR images can be acquired in the same session.

This allows very accurate overlaying of the PET and MR images so that clinicians can combine the functional and anatomical information provided by PET and MR respectively into a single fused image.

The decision to install the scanner was driven by the need for diagnostic solutions that allow clinicians to bring personalized medicine to their patients.

The VU University Medical Center Amsterdam is a globally recognized center of excellence in the fields of oncology, neurology and cardiology.

“Constant innovation in medical imaging technologies has significantly expanded the frontiers of modern healthcare,” said Richard Fabian, General Manager Nuclear Medicine, Philips Healthcare.
“Cancer care is an innovation focus area for Philips, in which new imaging modalities such as Philips’ PET/MR system are expected to play an ever-increasing role in the diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of the disease. We look forward to our continuing collaboration with the VU University Medical Center Amsterdam to fully exploit the potential benefits of PET/MR imaging in patient care.”
