Royal Philips & SAM set up Advanced Medicine Imaging unit in Biopolis

Royal Philips & Singapore Institute of Advanced Medicine Holdings (SAM) have inaugurated the USD 100 million Advanced Medicine Imaging (AMI) unit at Biopolis, Singapore. Reportedly, the international biomedical research center is likely to offer specialized oncology care to the cancer patients across SouthEast Asia.

The strategic move is expected to facilitate scientific research while simultaneously designing medical training programs aimed at increasing the skills of healthcare service providers offering cancer treatment to patients. The new center is likely to be completed by the end of next year.

The establishment houses two PET/CT scanners of Philips Vereos that offer anatomical imaging & increase lesion detection ability with improved contrast & resolution. It is fortified with advanced imaging systems and clinical informatics.

The center is also predicted to possess IQon Spectral CT, Philips’ new generation CT solution that will help doctors describe tumors with accuracy in comparison to black & white images achieved via traditional CT scanning. The new setup in the SouthEast Asian firm is the World’s first spectral detector-based CT that assists physicians to carry out a retrospective analysis at low-dose and provide comprehensive spectral information based on the demand.

According to Singapore Business Review, last year, Royal Philips & Singapore Institute of Advanced Medicine Holdings had signed an agreement to develop a new center for cancer treatment in Singapore. The center is expected to provide oncology solutions for medical care researchers and healthcare professionals in addition to a professional training platform.

The newly established SouthEast Asian center will encourage new inventions in cancer diagnostics by holding workshops & symposiums.  It has been speculated that the oncology unit will not only bring a revolution in cancer treatment but will prove to be highly beneficial for cancer patients. Experts also predict that the new Advanced Medicine Imaging center will further drive the healthcare industry in the region.
