Charing Cross International Symposium 2016

Guiding tomorrow's innovation. Today.

How can we help you deliver more efficient and effective vascular care?

As a vascular surgeon you are at the forefront of fast-changing technologies and services – enabling early, confident diagnosis that can lead to effective treatment and restore healthy living. Today’s challenging healthcare environment demands that you find new ways to drive clinical performance, enhance the patient experience and deliver economic value for your institution.

Join us at Charing Cross International Symposium, where we tackle these challenges with innovative tools and technologies to help you perform clinical consults; recommend the best imaging; and provide the quantitative information to the entire care team.

Philips Volcano

The combination of Volcano’s broad portfolio of image guided therapy devices, physiology, and therapeutic solutions, and Philips’ leading interventional imaging solutions offers a unique opportunity to create highly integrated solutions that enhance procedural outcomes at a decisive stage in the health continuum.


We warmly invite you to join us at Charing Cross 2016 at booth #400

Volcano and Philips

"Meaningful innovation across the health continuum"

Improving experiences of patients, providers and caregiver’s means moving outside the hospital walls. In today’s healthcare environment, it’s not enough to just diagnose and treat. Patients and clinicians alike are looking for ways to manage health conditions before issues arise, and to stay healthy long after treatment. Our solutions are strategically developed to work cohesively across the patient journey.
