Integrated tools and a seamless experience for better detection
Philips’ integrated breast solution combines four features that work seamlessly together for comprehensive and confident screening and diagnosis. PureWave eL18-4 ultra-broadband linear array transducer is a single transducer that delivers high-quality imaging for your patients, including those who may be more technically challenging to image. PureWave crystal technology delivers fine-elevation focusing to provide exceptional detail resolution and tissue uniformity, as well as extended depth of field performance.
Anatomical intelligence for breast, enhances reproducibility and streamlines workflow while preserving image quality during the breast exam. The automation and intelligence provides visual mapping and annotation of screened anatomy, with minimal user interaction, to give clinicians confidence while documenting full coverage of the breast during the acquisition phase.
Full solution elastography ElastQ Imaging shear wave and strain elastography allows clinicians to rapidly assess a wide array of breast lesions with elevated diagnostic confidence. In combining both wave methods, ElastQ Imaging reveals more definitive information on tissue stiffness in the breast. New precision biopsy allows physicians to enhance the patient experience by performing more targeted biopsies. Reduced blind zones and enhanced needle reflections elevate clinical during interventional procedures.
