Philips CX50 xMATRIX  TEE, ICE, Diagnostic Features

CX50 xMatrix, the first portable ultrasound with Philips' Live 3-D TEE, now offers 2-D intracardiac echo (ICE) capability. 

CX50 xMatrix has been the only ultrasound system with the flexibility of a portable system together with Live 3-D TEE capability. Now the CX50 xMatrix is integrated with the St. Jude Medical ViewFlex Xtra Intracardiac Echocardiography (ICE) Catheter. The ViewFlex Xtra ICE catheter is a new, 2-D catheter featuring four-way steering and the unique benefit of single-handed control.

The CX50 xMatrix is an all-in-one imaging solution for cardiac catheterization labs, EP labs and hybrid operating rooms. With both ICE and Live 3-D TEE available on a single system, hospitals will not need to rely on scheduling two separate ultrasound systems for various procedures. The CX50 xMatrix also offers interventional workflow features such as Philips Allura tableside control, automatic patient data exchange, and support for Philips' EchoNavigator — which intelligently combines fluoroscopy and echocardiography.
