Advances in Care at Phoenix Children’s
3D Printing Improves Cancer Care
Medical professionals can create clear 3D images of a patient’s internal organs using CT and MRI scans at Phoenix Children’s 3D innovation lab. This allows tumors to be isolated and examined and provides unique data for treatment decisions. It can even make a handheld 3D image of a heart.
Premium Ultrasound Imaging Advances Care
Phoenix Children’s new EPIQ Elite premium ultrasound system, from Royal Philips, offers a range of advanced diagnostic ultrasound solutions. It delivers extraordinary image quality to assess fetal abnormalities and potential complications. It also allows clinicians to see directly into a vessel to assess vascular conditions.
Radiologists and Technologists Working Together
Technologists are experts in producing high-quality imaging results, and radiologists are experts in determining the type of imaging that’s best for each patient. Learn how these two specialists work together for the best patient outcomes.
Technology Innovations Improve Care
The radiology specialists at Phoenix Children’s are committed to delivering high-quality patient care. Our collaboration with Philips helps drive commitment with new research opportunities and innovations intended to address the specific needs of children.
IntelliSpace Portal 10 Provides 3D Anatomical Models
Phoenix Children’s collaboration with Royal Philips gives us state-of-the-art technologies such as Intellispace Portal 10, which has an embedded 3D modeling application. This feature provides a more accurate picture of anatomical details and helps doctors determine a tumor’s exact size and changes over time, which leads to better treatment choices. The IntelliSpace Portal 10 also provides surgeons with a 3D model to help plan surgeries.
Keeping Children Safe During Imaging
Radiation specialists understand that children are more sensitive to radiation than adults, since their organs and cells are growing. As part of our partnership with Royal Philips, Phoenix Children’s collaborated to design and test new protocols for imaging equipment that are child-sized and appropriate for a particular age group or organ. This ensures the highest-quality imaging with the lowest-possible dose of radiation.
