Ultrasound System Offers High Resolution Imaging
The iU22 xMatrix premium ultrasound system, by Philips, focuses on enhanced patient care, increased clinical confidence and bringing more diagnostic information to the reading room. It features an ergonomically designed X6-1 PureWave xMatrix array transducer.
The transducer offers ultra-thin slice imaging resulting in crisp, high-resolution images and includes the new Live xPlane feature, which allows clinicians to create two full-resolution images simultaneously, capturing twice as much clinical information in the same amount of time without moving, turning or rotating the transducer. Sweeping an entire area of interest is achieved through trackball technology, eliminating the need to sweep manually with the hand.
The X6-1 PureWave xMATRIX transducer converts to 3-D at the touch of a button to provide a more complete picture of anatomy without workflow disruption. There’s no need to change transducers.
With the system, clinicians can capture volume images in less than one second and send 3-D MPRs to any PACS system, making volume data available wherever needed for decision making, review and storage.
The iU22 xMATRIX provides integrated image fusion and instrument navigation capabilities with PercuNav, which acts like a GPS for medical instruments when guiding soft tissue biopsy and ablation procedures. The combined iU22 xMATRIX/PercuNav solution transforms two-dimensional patient images into dynamic, fused imaging maps that combine CT or MR imaging with live ultrasound.
