Philips upgrades Allura Xper cardio-vascular x-ray sytems
8 October 2009
Philips has launched a new upgrade program for its Allura Xper family
of Cardio/Vascular X-ray devices. The complimentary upgrade will be
provided globally to more than 2000 customers with Customer Service
Agreements. All other Philips Cardiovascular customers will be able to
purchase this upgrade.
The upgrade includes sophisticated remote technologies for Remote
Proactive Support, enabling Philips to automatically monitor each system
and send alerts when issues arise. This helps to identify and resolve
potential issues quickly — in some cases before the clinician is even
aware of the problem.
For users in North America, the solution goes one step further. With
Remote Desktop, customer service teams are able to take control of
systems and guide customers through the required steps for enhanced
application support over the phone.
In addition, the upgrade puts systems on the latest technology
platform, giving clinicians the opportunity to add a suite of new
applications that will help to further enhance clinical workflow.
Following the upgrade, the Allura Xper system will be ready for the
latest advanced tools to further enhance patient care, 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 all desired anatomical projections in
a single run, which can help to reduce dose and contrast medium
- FlexVisionXL: a new viewing concept with a 56 inch (125 cm) LCD
screen that enables clinicians to display multiple, sharp images
simultaneously in their own preferred size and layout
