HeartNavigator heart model


The HeartNavigator is a structural heart CT planning and live guidance solution using automatic heart model segmentation of anatomy to improve ease of use, speed and reproducibility of planning tasks, and adding the ability to overlay planned targets, landing zones and anatomical boundaries onto live fluoroscopy.


In TAVR, HeartNavigator enables:

  • Calcification distribution assessment
  • Fully automatic sizing and view planning
  • Virtual TAVR device visualisation to examine anatomical fit
  • Automatic planning report
  • Table side recall of planned X-ray projections
  • Live overlay of segmentation to visualise landing zones, coronary ostia and annotations

Philips Interventional Hemodynamic system

Philips Interventional Haemodynamic system

Brings advanced haemodynamic measurements into the interventional lab to support clinical decision making. This system includes a patient monitoring device mounted at the table side and a workstation in the control room with a user interface designed to simplify haemodynamic monitoring and assessment. The users in the control room can also perform haemodynamic analyses and display them in the exam room. Displaying all relevant physiologic waveforms and analyses supports you in making a real-time assessment of the patient’s condition during an intervention.


  • Improved communication in the interventional lab by visualising haemodynamic analyses in the exam room
  • Enhanced workflow through integrated valve gradient assessment
  • Confidently used by all staff members with minimal training

IntelliSpace Portal TAVI Planning

IntelliSpace Portal CT TAVI Planning

CT TAVI Planning on IntelliSpace Portal consists of four main elements to help you plan transcatheter aortic valve replacement.


  • 3D model-based segmentation and visualisation of aortic valve annulus and other related structures required for TAVI procedure planning, including aortic valve calcifications. All for a clear understanding of patient's anatomy and pathology
  • Automatic annulus and aortic root-related measurements, together with peripheral vessels access route. These were demonstrated to be fast and reproducible (in comparison to one of the main competitors1)
  • Automated device-related measurements, vascular access route measurements, together with automatic generation of standard C-arm angles
  • IntelliSpace Portal supports communication to Philips Azurion image-guided therapy suites. The unique "interventional bookmark" (iBookmark) automatically launches relevant advanced analysis (CT TAVI Planning) before a procedure. This provides the interventional cardiologist with rich imaging information as the starting point of the procedure

    Customer experiences with Philips Azurion

    Azurion whitepaper

    The ability to treat one more patient per day, or in the future

    This is just one of the many improvements in lab performance achieved by the Interventional Vascular Department at St. Antonius Hospital after installing the Azurion system. The first Azurion lab performance study achieved impressive results2 which have been verified by an independent third party.*


    reduction in procedure time


    increase in usage of supporting software tools


    reduction in patient preparation time


    reduction in planned cases finished after normal working hours


    reduction in post-procedure time


    of physicians who participated in a simulated use study agreed that FlexArm offered uncompromised access to the patient's head end

    Clinical solutions for treating structural heart diseases

    Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement
    EchoNavigator augmented visualization


    EchoNavigator reorients and combines ultrasound and X-ray information into a single augmented visualisation for guidance and device-tissue relationship assessment.


    In TAVR EchoNavigator enables the following to eliminate iodine contrast in patients with severely compromised kidney function:

    • Aorta and aortic valve segmentation from 3D TEE to determine optimal implant projections
    • Live-on-live fusion of fluoroscopy and ultrasound, including 2D, 3D and color flow, to visualise valve deployment

    Azurion Workflow Solutions

    Azurion workflow solutions

    The Azurion has been specifically designed to integrate information from multiple sources and to save procedure time through flexible and user-centric display and control options. For example:


    • The touch screen module Pro enables table side control of images and applications with tablet ease.
    • FlexSpot is a clutter-free environment to control all connected applications.
    • Parallel working  enables people to work on two different activities at the same time without interruptions.
    • IntelliSpace Cardiovascular is designed to help streamline workflow and improve operational performance throughout the cardiovascular service line, with a tight integration with Philips TOMTEC, Xper IM, IntelliSpace Portal and IntelliSpace ECG. IntelliSpace Cardiovascular also interfaces with multiple third-party applications. It can be viewed and controlled from FlexSpot and FlexVision Pro of Azurion.
