Philips Introduces Ultrasound System for a Restricted Budget

Royal Philips Electronics announced the introduction of one of the first ultrasound systems that provides ultrasound departments that serve a diverse patient population and have a restricted budget with advanced High Definition imaging available in their price range.

Clinicians in these settings -- accustomed to compromising performance and support due to financial constraints -- need solutions that fully meet their clinical and budgetary requirements. Often, they have to rely on remanufactured ultrasound equipment or purchase less expensive equipment.

The Philips HD11 system addresses these issues with many features and multiple scanning configurations to support the broad needs of an end-referring institution. The improved diagnostic capabilities of the HD11 system result in improved diagnostic confidence for the physician, greater peace of mind for the patient, and potentially reduced medical costs, in part by reducing or eliminating the need for more expensive or invasive tests.

Among its standard features, the HD11 ultrasound system includes real-time SonoCT compound imaging with XRES technology; broadband beamforming; 3D, 4D and STIC imaging; Stress Echo; panoramic and contrast imaging; and full networking capabilities. In addition, the system features advanced automation to improve workflow and reduce variability between exams, and the choice of more than 20 transducers for a wide variety of scanning needs.

The core of the HD11 system is its high-definition imaging. Its digital broadband beamformer with beam steering capabilities and powerful signal processing techniques, including Philips exclusive SonoCT real-time compound imaging with XRES technology, provide enhanced edges and margins for more defined structures, reduced noise and speckle, and better visibility and contrast resolution of even the smallest structures, according to the company.

Optional features include Stress Echo, 4D, panoramic and contrast imaging, and STIC (Spatio-Temporal Imaging Correlation) imaging, which allows the perinatologist or obstetrician to view and assess fetal heart function in 3D. This helps plan for surgery in utero or at birth and is a capability previously not available on systems in this price range. In addition, clinicians can customize their HD11 with specialized application requirements for breast, transesophageal, pediatric, vascular, musculoskeletal, and more.
