Rosy with Cydar as it maps out healthcare software deal with Philips

Cambridge company Cydar, which provides cloud-based procedure maps software in healthcare, has signed an exclusive agreement with Philips, a global leader in health technology.

Under this arrangement covering EU, UK and US, Philips will offer Cydar EV Maps for sale alongside its Image-Guided Therapy Mobile C-arm System – Zenition. The partnership will offer Cydar enhanced commercial reach, including to Philips' existing installed customer base.

As patient numbers rise and procedures become more complex and time-consuming, patient-specific real-time procedure planning and guidance, optimisation of equipment utilisation, and usability have become ever more important. 

To help overcome these challenges, the partnership with Philips will add extended capabilities to its Zenition mobile C-arm platform through the integration of Cydar EV Maps.

Cydar EV Maps is the first product from Cydar’s platform and brings cloud, AI and computer vision to mobile surgery to improve care. 

It enables surgeons to create detailed patient specific 3D Maps to plan surgery, and then automatically augments the live image guidance used during surgery with these maps, which are updated real time for events occurring during surgery.

When guidewires and instruments deform blood vessels, clinicians simply use the real-time imaging to update the Map to match the new, deformed patient anatomy. The result is an accurate 3D Map on the screen throughout a procedure. 

The Cydar EV Maps platform also allows post procedure outcome analysis. The result of this integration of procedure planning, guidance and review is that surgeons can work more accurately and efficiently – enabling a c50 per cent reduction in radiation exposure a significant reduction in fluoroscopy time and reducing procedure times by more than 20 per cent while helping achieve better outcomes for patients.

Philips Image-Guided Therapy Mobile C-arm System – Zenition – brings together innovations in image capture and processing, ease-of-use and versatility many of which were pioneered on Philips’ highly successful image guided therapy platform Azurion. 

Like Azurion, the Zenition mobile C-arm system allows hospitals to maximise operating room performance, enhance their clinical capabilities, and provide staff with a seamless user experience.

Paul Mussenden, CEO of Cydar, said: “By partnering with Philips to bring our Cydar EV Map solution to Philips’ user-friendly Zenition platform of mobile C-arms we are a step closer to achieving our mission to ensure every image-guided minimally-invasive surgical procedure goes exactly as planned.

“The benefits of this combined solution, with integrated and enhanced procedure planning and visualisation, include shorter and more predictable procedure times, reduced X-ray exposure to patients and staff, and fewer injections of the iodine dye - the leading cause of in-hospital kidney failure.”

Karim Boussebaa, General Manager Image Guided Therapy Systems at Philips, added: “With Philips’ integrated portfolio, using validated AI and cloud technologies, we can facilitate collaborative care to optimise surgical pathways.

“Philips has a strong global network of mobile surgery systems and recognises that Cydar’s EV Maps solution can play a key role in further improving our integrated offering for endovascular procedures.”
