   Philips said it is showcasing various artificial intelligence solutions for health care at the 75th Korean Congress of Radiology, held Wednesday through Saturday at Coex in southern Seoul.

Demand for better medical services is on the rise globally, but resources, including human resources, are increasingly on the decline, said Philips, calling for “more effective remedies, improved patient experience, enhanced workflow for medical staff and lowered medical cost.”

The area of radiology is used for precision diagnosis, enabling earlier detection of illness and therefore more affordable and effective treatments.

Some of the devices on display at the Philips booth at Coex are the magnetic resonance platform Ingenia Elition 3.0T, computed tomography device IQon Spectral CT, ultrasonic anatomical reader EPIQ Elite, intervention X-ray Azurion and a server-type comprehensive data analytics solution IntelliSpace Portal.
