Royal Philips will demonstrate a range of new cardiovascular solutions that supply cardiologists with knowledge for more confident diagnoses at the 2006 American Heart Association (AHA) Scientific Sessions meeting. At AHA, Philips revealed the industry’s smallest transducer for 4D cardiac ultrasound imaging in infants and children to help cardiologists accurately view a patient’s cardiac structure and blood flow by improving access to the heart.

Introduced for the first time, the Philips X7-2 x-MATRIX array transducer is part of a pediatric and congenital heart disease solution that affords small patients the same imaging, quantification and cardiac management benefits that adults attain from Live real-time 3D echocardiography (echo), an ultrasound of the heart. The speed at which volumetric data are captured and the non-invasive nature of ultrasound enables clinicians to obtain high-quality images and data quickly and easily, while potentially reducing young patients’ emotional and physical stress, and providing surgeons with pre-operative views of cardiac anatomy and function.

Additionally, the transducer, in conjunction with QLAB quantification software, allows cardiologists to evaluate a pediatric patient’s heart and closely examine structures, blood flow and function for enhanced diagnosis and treatment planning.
