Philips Completes Acquisition of Volcano

February 17, 2015—Royal Philips announced it has completed its acquisition of San Diego-based Volcano Corporation. In its announcement, Philips highlighted Volcano’s strengths in intravascular ultrasound and flow-fractional reserve technologies, which it says will complement Philips’ existing imaging, navigation, and software/service platforms. 

Frans van Houten, Chief Executive Officer of Royal Philips, called the completion of the Volcano acquisition an important milestone in Philips' strategy to become the leading systems integrator in the fast-growing image-guided minimally invasive therapies market. "The combination of Volcano’s broad portfolio of imaging and measurement catheters and Philips’ leading interventional imaging solutions allows us to provide our customers with an integrated solution to improve procedural outcomes at a decisive stage in the health continuum," said Mr. van Houten.
