Best practices – breast cancer

Comprehensive breast cancer management

As the most prevalent cancer disease among women, breast cancer is a key focal area for Philips. Our solutions are focused on the real needs of customers and consumers around the world, many of whom are women. We develop innovative solutions across the continuum of health in partnership with clinicians and our customers to improve patient outcomes, provide better value, and expand access to care. Our comprehensive approach to breast cancer management offers many benefits for patients and healthcare providers.

Holistic, integrated breast imaging oncology solutions

 

At Philips, we believe people want to be healthy, live well and enjoy life. Our solutions are focused on the real needs of customers and consumers around the world, many of whom are women.

Breast screening management solution

 

One in eight women will develop a breast cancer in their lifetime. Therefore, breast screening is an important focal area of Philips. With a strong screening program in place, breast cancer can be detected early and patients can be saved by receiving the right treatment. We propose a complete solution for screening management that encompasses the entire patient journey, from the exam invitation to the mammography exam itself, to the report, and additional exams, as required. Our screening management program includes consultancy, quality assurance measures, education, outsourcing services, and measurement of key performance indicators.

Customer story of how one clinic delivers more personalized care to patients

 

Radiologist Dr. Helmut Klein from Steyr, Austria, uses Philips breast imaging solutions to deliver personalized care to his patients. For fast, comfortable mammograms with excellent image quality, he has chosen our MicroDose SI system. He has combined it with Philips Affiniti ultrasound and Ingenia MR, to create a comprehensive breast-imaging oncology center that provides full diagnostic services for women.

From screening to a complete oncology center

 

Once your screening program is in place, we can help you realize a complete oncology center. Here our MicroDose SI Mammography system works seamlessly with ultrasound, MR, PET/CT, IMRT treatment planning with Pinnacle3, the IntelliSpace Breast workstation, and PACS IT solutions.

 

You can draw upon our vast resources in room layout design, workflow improvement, financing, ambient lighting, and patient experience.
