When it comes to acute stroke, everyone deserves the best care. Today, more patients can benefit from mechanical thrombectomy through changed guidelines, which widen the time window for endovascular treatment.1

When it comes to acute stroke, everyone deserves the best care. Today, more patients can benefit from mechanical thrombectomy through changed guidelines, which widen the time window for endovascular treatment.1

 

Direct to Angio Suite workflows allow for comprehensive stroke diagnosis to be performed directly in the neuro angio suite. This provides valuable, time-saving support for critical patients in acute need of mechanical thrombectomy therapy. This provides valuable, time-saving support for transfer and direct patients who arrive at the comprehensive stroke center (CSC).

STEMI re-perfusion treatment

Why Direct to Angio Suite?


At Philips, our goal is to help stroke centers shorten door to re-perfusion times for ischemic stroke by optimizing workflow and protocols, inspired by established STEMI re-perfusion treatment.2

 

To achieve this, we are working with leading stroke centers on the development of innovative solutions aimed at further improving image quality, while enhancing workflows to shorten re-perfusion treatment times after ischemic stroke.

 

Combined, these factors offer great potential for stroke centers to treat more people, faster, improving clinical outcomes.

That’s health with no bounds.

The Direct to Angio Suite workflow at a glance 

Time to reperfusion is fundamental in reducing morbidity and mortality in acute stroke.4,5

In patients presenting directly to an endovascular-capable center, emphasis has now been placed on fast door-to-imaging times and fast imaging to groin access times. Patients who initially present to an external facility face additional sources of delay with prolonged door in-door out times, transport times, and additional testing at the endovascular-capable center hospital.6

Significant advances in technology mean that we are now able to identify, plan and treat ischemic stroke patients in the angiography suite, without the need for a separate CT or MR scan.

Philips Neuro suite offers a flexible portfolio of integrated technologies, services, and neuro accessories that puts you in firm control whether treating an acute stroke patient.

Improving the quality of clinical images

Before After
Philips is evaluating in clinical research the optimization of clinically relevant parameters such as increased acquisition speed, improved contrast resolution and optimized artefact correction.7
Before After
Avoiding motion artifacts in restless patients, enabling enhanced depiction of bleedings and avoiding cone-beam artefacts, especially in the posterior fossa are important elements of the ongoing research.8
Clinical imaging
Hemorrhage detection. Comparison between optimized XperCT and Multi Detector CT.9

Advancing acute stroke care


At Philips, we believe that when it comes to acute stroke care, everyone deserves the best care. Our innovative Neuro suite is already delivering advancements in interventional neuroradiology, such as our industry-leading CT-like XperCT, which provides excellent imaging quality to assist interventional neuroradiologists with diagnosis and treatment.

We would like to see even more patients receive the care they need, especially with time being a critical aspect in the treatment of acute strokes.

Trends shaping the stroke market


Stroke care and treatment is a major challenge for healthcare providers across the globe. In many cases, particularly for patients who have experienced an acute stroke, ‘Time is Brain’ – meaning that the right treatment at the right time could potentially lead to enhanced patient outcomes.

WE-TRUST

Why WE TRUST in Direct to Angio?

Philips has a depth of perspective across image guided therapy and the way we treat stroke patients’ clinical processes, and this expertise can help break the boundaries standing in the way of organizing stroke care around the patient. 

 

Clinical studies: acquisition protocols, imaging quality and impact on workflow

We are currently conducting clinical studies at a number of leading stroke sites to evaluate new acquisition protocols and assess imaging quality (artefact reduction and image reconstruction) of CBCT (Cone-Beam CT) scans in patients with neurovascular diseases, and assess impact on the workflow compared to the standard of care.10

 

Multicenter randomized study: WE TRUST

In addition to these ongoing studies, Philips will evaluate the potential of these new solutions in the context of a Direct to Angio Suite (DTAS) workflow. A multicenter randomized study ‘Workflow optimization to reduce Time to endovascular Reperfusion
