Philips buys company that takes 3-D images of the heart

Philips has incorporated a British company. EPD Solutions has developed a technology to create 3-D images of the heart and blood vessels.

Philips, which originated in Eindhoven, paid a quarter of a billion euros for the company. With the 3D-technology, it should be able to soon make better diagnoses. This should also lead to a better treatment plan for the patient.

With the acquisition, Philips wants to gain a better position on the market when it comes to medical imaging. The market in this field is growing when it comes to cardiac arrhythmias. The take-over should be finalised this summer.
