Philips SmartCT 3D image acquisition, visualization and measurement software for its Azurion Image Guided Therapy System receives FDA 510(k) clearance

April 6, 2021

  • Intuitive, table-side touchscreen control offers interventionalists enhanced diagnostic confidence and streamlined workflows [1]
  • Full control of image acquisition and analysis from within the sterile zone helps to avoid procedure disruption, saving time and allowing interventionalists to stay focused on their patients

Amsterdam, the Netherlands – Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, today announced U.S. Food and Drug Administration 510 (k) clearance for its Philips SmartCT application software. SmartCT is a key component of Philips Image Guided Therapy System – Azurion – providing interventionalists with CT-like 3D images (Cone Beam CT) to support diagnosis, therapy planning, treatment and follow-up for interventional radiology procedures. Bringing intuitive touchscreen control of advanced 3D image acquisition, visualization, vessel/organ segmentation, and quantitative measurements to the table-side, within the interventional lab’s sterile zone, SmartCT helps enhance clinical confidence, smooths workflows, and increases productivity. It includes software applications for angiography, neurology, soft-tissue imaging, and guidewire/catheter navigation, supporting a wide range of procedures such as the treatment of aneurysms, vascular diseases and liver tumors.

Philips’ latest Azurion image-guided therapy platform integrates essential lab systems and tools needed for complex interventional procedures into an uncluttered laboratory environment in which interventionalists can focus on treating the patient rather than being distracted by the technology. SmartCT brings total control of the Azurion platform to a touchscreen tablet situated alongside the interventional radiology table. This eliminates the need for clinicians to leave the sterile field and step into an adjacent control room, as well as supporting faster and better-informed decision making.

“A key part of our image-guided therapy strategy is to combine high-quality, low X-ray dose imaging with a superior user experience that allows interventional radiologists to diagnose and treat patients as part of smoother, safer and less interrupted workflows,” said Ronald Tabaksblat, General Manager Image Guided Therapy Systems at Philips. “Philips SmartCT is a major step forward in 3D imaging, enhancing confidence in the interventional suite and supporting key elements of the quadruple aim of better patient outcomes, enhanced patient and staff experiences and lower cost of care.”

“Changing to a new technology can be challenging, but if the system itself can show you the way, it makes it much easier to adopt new advances,” Prof. Hicham Kobeiter, Chief of Radiology and Interventional Radiology, Hôpitaux Universitaires Henri-Mondor in Crétiel, France. “SmartCT leads you through each step of the procedure, bringing us more confidence and more precision across cardiovascular, oncology and emergency cases.”

“With the new SmartCT interface we can go into more detail more quickly and safely, with fewer staff in the room,” said Prof. Marc Sopval, Interventional Radiologist at Hôpital Européen Georges Pompidou AP-HP in Paris, France. “SmartCT has brought Cone Beam CT to life in everyday practice: all the tools and guidance capabilities are used by the entire team each day.”

With SmartCT, users are guided through the image acquisition process and can review and interact with the acquired CT-like 3D images on the system’s table-side touch screen module using 3D visualization and measurement tools. These tools have been designed to support procedures in a range of clinical domains, including neurology, oncology, and cardiovascular procedures, and feature intuitive two-point distance measurements on 3D images, the ability to remove structures from the images that obstruct the region of interest, and the ability to select and store optimum projection angles for recall during procedures.

Philips SmartCT image acquisition, visualization and measurement software is an integral part of the next-generation Philips Image Guided Therapy System – Azurion – which was launched in September 2020, marking an important step forward in optimizing clinical and operational lab performance and expanding the role of image-guided interventions in the treatment of patients. Azurion has achieved rapid global adoption, reflecting the accelerating trend toward minimally-invasive surgery thanks to its benefits in terms of reduced patient trauma, shorter recovery times and hospital stays, and lower healthcare costs.

[1] Evaluated with clinical users in a simulated lab environment with a total of 17 teams consisting of a physician and an interventional radiology technologist with different levels of experience.

Shell Invests in LanzaJet to Further Accelerate the Global Commercialization of LanzaJet’s Leading Alcohol-to-Jet Technology to Address the Aviation Sector’s Urgent Need to Decarbonise

CHICAGO, April 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Our world is at an inflection point – one that requires action today, solutions that work, and meaningful progress toward decarbonizing industries and our society. LanzaJet, Inc., a leading sustainable fuels technology company and sustainable fuels producer, announced today that Shell joins as an investor in the company to advance LanzaJet’s global growth, accelerate commercialization of its technology, and scale the production of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF).

Shell joins founding investors in LanzaJet, including LanzaTech, Suncor Energy Inc., Mitsui & Co., Ltd., and more recently, British Airways, as well as participation from All Nippon Airways. In addition to its initial investment in LanzaJet and similar to the phased investment approach used with all of the LanzaJet investors, Shell will have the opportunity to make further investments in the construction of larger-scale production facilities over the coming years. This innovative phased investment approach significantly accelerates commercial deployment at a time when reducing emissions, especially of aviation, is increasingly important and demonstrates a joint commitment to creating a resilient, low carbon future. With the right policies to support the uptake and production of SAF, aviation can achieve net-zero emissions.

The investment comes as LanzaJet continues its work to build the first Alcohol-to-Jet (AtJ) facility of its’ kind globally, a commercial-scale plant (10 million gallons per year capacity) in Soperton, Georgia, USA. Freedom Pines Fuels, as it’s called, continues on schedule with operations beginning in 2022. LanzaJet was launched in June 2020 following nearly a decade of technology development and commercial scale-up through a partnership by LanzaJet’s founder, LanzaTech, with the U.S Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL).  The LanzaJet process can use any source of sustainable ethanol for jet fuel production, including, but not limited to, ethanol made from recycled pollution, the core application of LanzaTech’s carbon recycling platform.

LanzaJet’s technology is uniquely able to produce up to 90% of its fuels as SAF, with the remaining 10% as renewable diesel. The SAF will be blended with conventional fossil jet fuel and be supplied to airports through the existing supply routes. The technology can flex to produce more diesel and less SAF, as desired. LanzaJet’s SAF is approved to be blended up to 50% with fossil jet fuel, the maximum allowed by ASTM, and is a drop-in fuel that requires no modifications to engines, aircraft, and infrastructure. Additionally, LanzaJet’s SAF delivers more than a 70% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions on a lifecycle basis, compared to conventional fossil jet fuel. The versatility in ethanol, and a focus on low-carbon, waste-based, and non-food /non-feed sources, along with ethanol’s global availability, make LanzaJet’s technology a relevant and enduring solution for SAF.

Anna Mascolo, President, Shell Aviation, said:

“LanzaJet’s technology opens up a new and exciting pathway to produce SAF using an AtJ process and will help address the aviation sector’s urgent need for SAF. It demonstrates that the industry can move faster and deliver more when we all work together. Provided industry, government and society collaborate on appropriate policy mechanisms and regulations to drive both supply and demand, aviation can achieve net-zero carbon emissions. The strategic fit with LanzaJet is exciting. Through our Raízen joint venture in Brazil, we have been producing bioethanol for over ten years, and we have already demonstrated production of cellulosic ethanol from waste materials. Our access to feedstocks, experience of optimizing supply chains, and extensive sales and marketing business will hopefully contribute to LanzaJet creating sustainable, robust, and scalable commercial operations, supporting our customers’ decarbonisation ambitions for many years to come.”

Jimmy Samartzis, LanzaJet CEO, said:

“We’ve been at a crossroads for years and we’re now at a point in time when real solutions matter to address the global need to get to net-zero. At LanzaJet, we’re in a unique position with technology that is ready and scaling today to produce lower-carbon, sustainable fuels. Shell’s investment and partnership help to further advance our work to do our part to decarbonize aviation globally, a sector with limited other options in the near- and mid-term.”

Jennifer Holmgren, LanzaJet Board Chair and LanzaTech CEO, said:

“We have an outstanding group of investors, leading in the energy transition and working across industries to reduce carbon emissions. I am delighted to welcome Shell to the LanzaJet family as we work together to realize our ambition of producing significant volumes of SAF from wastes to help the aviation sector meet their carbon reduction goals.”

Quick Facts

  • Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) is fundamental to aviation’s progress towards net-zero emissions, and looking forward, LanzaJet’s technology provides a ready, scalable, and unique solution that focuses on SAF production today and for tomorrow.
  • Shell’s investment further enables LanzaJet’s global growth and aligns with Shell’s strategy to become a net-zero emissions energy business by 2050, in step with society, providing customers with more and cleaner energy solutions.
  • Shell joins other LanzaJet investors including LanzaTech, Suncor Energy Inc., Mitsui & Co., Ltd., and British Airways, along with participation in LanzaJet by All Nippon Airways (ANA).
