Philips enhances Xper line
Philips today launched a new upgrade program for its Allura Xper family of cardiovascular X-ray devices. The upgrade includes remote diagnostics that allow Philips to automatically monitor each system and send alerts, when issues arise with the onsite Xper systems. In North America, the upgrade will allow customer service teams to take control of systems and guide customers through the required steps to resolve problems. With the upgrade, customers will be able to run other enhancements and applications, including XperGuide, CT-like soft tissue imaging providing live 3D needle image guidance during percutaneous needle interventions in the angio lab; XperSwing,an automated dual-axis rotational angiography option allowing acquisition of multiple anatomical projections in a single run, thereby reducing dose and contrast medium; and FlexVisionXL, which employs a 56-inch LCD screen that displays multiple images simultaneously.
