Congenital heart disease

Live Image Guidance in treating congenital heart disease

In pediatric imaging, high quality imaging is tuned to small patient weights in order to reduce radiation dose and contrast agent usage.


You cannot sacrifice critical image quality or anatomic information that would affect the most advantageous course of treatment for procedures like aortic coarctation or ventricular septal defect.


AlluraClarity family of X-ray systems with ClarityIQ technology delivers superb image quality at 50% reduction in dose, while 3D and multimodality Live Image Guidance helps reduce contrast-induced complications. These pediatric specific tools offer enhanced precision, predictability, confidence, and clarity.

Greater insight and confidence in finding and treating the problem

Our Live Image Guidance expands clinical capabilities through intelligent and intuitive integration of multi-modality images at the point of treatment, enabling confident diagnoses and real-time therapy monitoring.


High speed, high resolution 3D visualization


Provides 3D visualization of the anatomy to plan the optimal therapeutic approach. High-resolution rotational angio reduces the number of DSA acquisitions and fluoro time for an examination.


Real-time, automatic, fusion of live X-ray & live (pediatric) echo


By automatically fusing live X-ray and live echo images, in real time, EchoNavigator helps you identify target points and provides enhanced navigation of devices through soft tissue anatomy during interventions.

Live 3D MR CT Roadmap

Reduced contrast real-time navigation assistance


Fuses live 2D fluoroscopy on a pre-acquired MR or CT image revealing hidden anomalies and enabling real-time motion compensated navigation. Provides full 3D view for guidance of guidewire and catheters through pediatric vessels and soft tissue, without the need to use contrast.


3D live image guidance


HeartNavigator provides automatic segmentation and landmark identification, for simplified TAVR planning and device/projection selection. Assessment of calcification around the valve helps to avoid procedure complications.

Better user experience to promote consistency and efficiency

By combining disease centric tools, patient data, and procedural protocols in a single suite, clinicians are supported in each of their specific disciplines. This simplifies clinical workflow and promotes efficiency.

Allura Xper FD 10/10 Biplane X-ray

For exceptional visualization of cardiac anatomy


Achieve the challenging projection views you require for complex congenital interventions. Allura’s unique lateral double c-arm allows steep cranial/caudal positioning without hampering the operator and gives you independent frontal and lateral positioning.

Hybrid OR suites

Designed to accommodate combined specialties


Procedures combining surgical and interventional approaches require a Hybrid Suite. Philips offers a range of Hybrid Suites from mono to biplane that can be tailored to user needs and allows easy access for an enhanced workflow.


Powerful ultrasound performance


Captures an enormous amount of acoustic data and reconstructs in real-time optimally focused beams, creating precise resolution for every pixel in the image. You get superb tissue uniformity and detail, critical in small pediatric cardiac anatomy.

CX50 xMatrix

Compact ultrasound with 3D TEE


The integrated CX50, offers Live 3D TEE, ICE, and pediatric probes, seamlessly speeding preparation and reducing duplication through automatic transfer of patient data from X-ray to ultrasound system. 


Optimized image quality at reduced X-ray dose levels


A suite of safe and effective dose optimization tools reduce dose during every procedure, helping to minimize accumulated dose for pediatric patient who may require intervention over the course of several years.

FlexVision XL

Full control of your viewing environment


Integrates all relevant images and information together in an interactive, intuitive and procedurally relevant way to expand clinical capabilities and enhance real time cross functional communication.

Lower barriers for minimally invasive interventions

An innovative set of techniques, programs, and practices are used to deliver high quality imaging for a full range of clinical procedures at ultra low dose. This enables comfortable treatment of radiation-sensitive patients and helps manage staff exposure.

AlluraClarity with ClarityIQ

Industry leading image quality at a fraction of the dose


AlluraClarity family of X-ray systems with ClarityIQ technology delivers superb image quality at 50% dose reduction, helping to minimize patient and staff exposure. You can manage low dose levels to see what you must, without changing the way you work.

DoseAware family

Real-time radiation exposure monitoring


Real-time dose feedback tools include DoseAware Xtend for procedure-based feedback on scattered X-ray dose (during and after the procedure) to help manage radiation exposure for patients and staff.

Increased economic value

We are committed to working with you to reduce re-admissions, streamline work flow, and increase patient volume by opening the door to new procedures and techniques. By supporting a wide range of procedures you can increase system utilization and reduce the total cost of ownership. Flexible service contracts protect your investment over its entire lifecycle, increasing uptime and providing easy access to upgrades and innovations.
