, both based in Amsterdam, have signed a memorandum of understanding establishing a long-term research partnership that they say will enable them to develop new solutions for the diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of major disease areas.

According to the deal, the two organizations will unite on projects focusing on medical imaging applied to brain disease, cancer, cardiovascular disease, musculoskeletal disease and pulmonary disease, with a concentration on oncology interventions. Philips and UMC Utrecht expect the agreement to result in new treatment methods that will ultimately lead to an improved quality of healthcare delivery, they say.
