Heart Disease

Treating structural heart disease with image-guided intervention

Accurately recognizing heart structures based on medical images takes years of training and experience.

The use and interpretation of X-ray and 3D ultrasound imaging techniques during structural heart disease (SHD) procedures can be challenging – especially when guiding catheters that carry implants.

Quick and easy access to enhanced visualization, and live image-guided navigation through soft tissue anatomy, can help you determine the optimal course of treatment with diagnostic confidence.

Combining live X-ray and live 3D ultrasound to treat structural heart disease

“We are integrating two separate medical images and bringing them together in a way that makes performance of these interventions more straightforward.”

Physicians share experiences with Philips HeartNavigator

Bring clarity to complex SHD procedures


“The clinical decision is made much easier when using HeartNavigator – first for the valve type we choose, and then for the valve size. These are important things, that if one can determine them in advance, are very significant.”

Dr. H. Schrofel, Heart Surgeon
