We are delighted to have a strategic partnership with a leading health technology company. With their headquarters also based in Amsterdam, we look forward to leveraging Philips’ years of experience in the stroke space and wide network to bring StrokeViewer to more hospitals across the globe.

Philips has a deep portfolio of stroke care solutions and a strong commitment to further innovation in this field. Its partnership with Nicolab brings a cloud-based, end-to-end artificial intelligence (AI) based stroke triage and management solution − StrokeViewer − that aims to improve patient outcome by optimizing the stroke workflow. It analyzes CT scan data with AI, and automatically detects large vessel occlusion (LVO) and its location. It then shares this analysis with physicians at both primary stroke centers (general radiologists and neurologist) and intervention centers (stroke neurologists, interventional neurologists, and radiologists) where the patient is eventually treated.

Recent Philips innovations that optimize the imaging capabilities of its Image Guided Therapy Angiography Suite with new 3D visualization and measurement tool – SmartCT – aim to get patients into treatment quickly.

“By expanding our offerings in stroke care we are able to provide an integrated portfolio of intelligent solutions across the full stroke care pathway, giving clinicians the right information during every critical step,” said Bert van Meurs, Chief Business Leader for Image Guided Therapy at Philips. “With our integrated portfolio, and by using validated AI and cloud technologies, we can facilitate collaborative care to optimize the stroke care pathway from diagnosis to treatment.”
