Vascular assessment powered by world’s first xMATRIX linear transducer
The Philips Ultimate Ultrasound Solution for Vascular Assessment provides superb insight into the progression of vascular disease. It combines 3D and 4D imaging, a breakthrough simplified workflow and complementary clinical tools to effectively assess and monitor vascular disease. Philips’ innovative xMATRIX transducer can produce extraordinary 3D vascular images, allowing clinicians to easily see directly into a vessel to evaluate plaque spatial location and composition, as well as view 3D flow data to quickly assess stenotic conditions. In addition, the solution includes live ‘xPlane’ imaging – proprietary to Philips – allowing clinicians to acquire two planes simultaneously to improve accuracy of data collection, and reduce exam time by 20% . Icon-driven visual workflow makes 3D imaging easier, reducing the steps that the clinician needs to take from 10 to one . Bringing 3D and 4D visualization to vascular ultrasound for the first time, this solution provides an ideal communication tool to facilitate clinical decisions and enhance patient consultation.
“Not much has changed in vascular ultrasound until this release of the ultimate ultrasound solution for vascular assessment,” said Muhammad Hasan, MBBCh, RPVI, RVT, RDCS, RDMS, Manager, Departments of Echocardiography and Noninvasive Vascular Testing, Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute, Baptist Hospital of Miami. “The combination of a new transducer and advances in software makes the assessment and diagnosis of vascular conditions through easy to interpret images. There is now a case to be made for ultrasound solutions to be used as a potential alternative to other imaging modalities in the current standard of care.”
