Another world-first solution at AMI is Philips’ IQon Spectral CT, a new generation Computed Tomography (CT) solution that allows clinicians to characterize tumors with greater certainty than is possible with black and white images from conventional CT scans. Philips’ IQon Spectral CT is also the world's first spectral detector-based CT that allows clinicians to do both in-depth spectral information on demand and retrospective analysis at low-dose – a direct benefit to patients.
The AMI center also has a Philips Ingenia 3T MRI equipped with Philips’ unique Ambient Experience, which uses dynamic lighting, video and sound to provide patients with a calming immersive environment.
These state-of-the-art imaging systems within the AMI will be complemented by a full suite of Philips clinically-rich healthcare informatics solutions, supporting confident diagnosis and personalized treatment. Philips provides IT solutions to integrate systems, aggregate data, accelerate workflows, and facilitate informed decisions, giving clinical teams the insights they need to work effectively and efficiently. One example is Philips’ IntelliSpace Portal, an advanced visualization analysis and quantification platform featuring a comprehensive suite of multi-modality applications, powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI). IntelliSpace Portal will also serve as a collaboration platform for clinical development and research for the Advanced Medicine Education Center within the AMI, which will be open to third parties in the future.
“With our experience in health technology, Philips has provided the AMI center with an integrated solution comprising world-class diagnostic imaging and informatics systems,” said Henk de Jong, Executive Vice President & Chief of International Markets, Royal Philips, who was in Singapore to officiate the opening of the AMI center. “Our aim is to help clinicians identify cancer early, when it is more likely to respond to treatment, potentially resulting in better health outcomes and considerable savings in treatment costs.”
Beyond diagnostic imaging innovations, upcoming facilities at the regional oncology center also promise more personalized and targeted cancer treatment pathways through the use of radioisotope therapies, such as Lu-PSMA (Lutetium Prostate-Specific Membrane Antigen) therapy, and proton beam therapy for tumor treatment.
The regional oncology center also aims to promote clinical research for breakthroughs in cancer diagnostics and treatment, and cross-border medical training to enhance the knowledge and expertise of the region’s healthcare professionals. Medical professionals from across the region can find out more about the workshops and symposiums conducted at the AMI center here.
