For new facilities and renovation projects, Philips says it will provide interventional X-ray equipment and specialized imaging tables and STERIS will supply specifically designed HD 360° Suites for hybrid surgical rooms featuring LED surgical lighting and visualization systems, integrated OR technology, and pendant (equipment management) systems.
