Philips expands global access to its 3D intracardiac echocardiography to Hong Kong

Must Read

24 May 2024- Royal Philips announced that the first hospitals in Hong Kong have started using Philips real-time 3D Intracardiac Echocardiography (ICE) catheter – VeriSight Pro – to aid minimally-invasive image-guided procedures. It is the first time the VeriSight Pro catheter, which is guided through a patient’s blood vessels until it lies directly inside the chambers of the heart, has been used clinically outside the US or Canada. It marks the start of the international roll-out of the company’s ground-breaking ICE imaging technology. VeriSight Pro’s high-quality imaging is particularly effective in planning and guiding complicated interventional procedures.

“The VeriSight Pro 3D ICE catheter delivers the image quality we need to characterize otherwise difficult-to-image heart structures such as the left atrial appendage or tricuspid valve, allowing us to achieve more advanced procedural imaging for our patients,” said Dr. Michael Lee, Head of Cardiology at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Hong Kong. “Philips has taken us up the learning curve remarkably quickly, so we can use it safely and confidently.”

Offering superior 2D and 3D live imaging, VeriSight Pro allows interventionalists to navigate procedures easily and optimize interventional suite performance. The reduced need for sedation or general anesthesia accelerates workflows, increasing procedure efficiency and reducing procedure times. VeriSight Pro is designed for use with Philips’ premium ultrasound systems, EPIQ CVx, and EPIQ CVxi.

“At Philips, we are committed to delivering state-of-the-art imaging solutions such as VeriSight Pro that leverage the advanced capabilities of our EPIQ ultrasound platform to enhance procedural confidence, optimize patient outcomes, and set new global standards in care,” said Bert van Meurs, Chief Business Leader of Precision Diagnosis and Image-Guided Therapy at Philips. “We look forward to working with leading specialists around the world to make that happen.”
