radiology technicians and write up reports and communicate with referring
physicians, allowing them to spend more time doing what they do best –
oAnatomical Intelligence: In order to speed up radiology workflows, Philips
is integrating its advanced organ modeling technology into clinical
application prototypes that uses a patient-specific model with the goal of
allowing radiologists to navigate and manipulate 3D images in terms of
anatomies rather than X/Y/Z coordinates. This new technology aims to
enable radiologists to rapidly navigate images and quickly make clinically
relevant measurements. Currently available for 3D heart models, Philips'
objective is to eventually adapt this technology for all major organs of
the body and to introduce anatomical intelligence in all clinical
