October 27, 2008 - Philips Healthcare has begun shipping its compact ultrasound unit, the CX50.
The CX50 was designed for bedside exams, with technologies that reportedly provide premium image quality for clear, diagnostic data, even on technically challenging patients. The CX50 system can be hand-carried where needed, maneuvered on a specially designed cart or wheeled in a travel case.
In addition to bedside exams, the CX50 is reportedly ideal for the OR. Its transesophageal echo and quantification capabilities facilitate following at-risk patients during surgical procedures.
