Anatomical intelligence powers ultrasound innovations in visualization and quantification
Built on the powerful EPIQ ultrasound platform, EPIQ CVx is specifically designed to increase diagnostic confidence and simplify workflow for clinicians in cardiac care, giving them more time to interact with their patients and reducing the need for repeat scans. It includes higher processing power, exceptional image clarity and sharpness, improved exam efficiencies and more robust and reproducible quantification, enabled by anatomical intelligence. Philips also is introducing the EPIQ CVxi, specifically tailored for use in the interventional lab .
The EPIQ CVx includes TrueVue, which gives clinicians the ability to see photorealistic renderings of the heart, improving cardiac anatomy analysis by offering detailed tissue and depth perception imaging through a new virtual light source. Building on Philips HeartModelA.I., it also includes Dynamic Heart Model, which uses anatomical intelligence to automatically quantify left ventricle function to produce a multi-beat analysis for adult patients. On the EPIQ CVxi, EchoNavigator helps interventional cardiologists more clearly oversee procedures along with the location of key anatomical structures by combining live ultrasound and X-ray information in one intuitive view.
“Anatomical intelligence – combining 3D organ modeling, image slicing, and proven quantification – is helping make ultrasound exams easier to perform and more reproducible,” said Bich Le, Business Leader Ultrasound, Philips. “It’s already providing clinicians with sophisticated, yet easy-to-use processing tools, and helping them quickly and more confidently identify anatomy and anomalies, assess disease states, determine treatment, and guide interventions. Our new EPIQ cardiac ultrasound solutions utilize latest advances in anatomical intelligence, offering cardiologists tailored diagnostic and interventional applications, including for pediatric requirements.”
