Philips installs 2,500th Live 3-D TEE iE33 system in North America  

June 18, 2012 — United Health Services (UHS), a locally owned, not-for-profit, 916-bed hospital and healthcare system serving the greater Binghamton, N.Y. area has selected Philips Live 3-D transesophageal echo (TEE) technology for cardiac care, marking the system’s 2,500th installation in North America.

Heart specialists at UHS work each day to be on the leading edge of disease prevention, diagnosis, treatment, research and rehabilitation. Supporting their determination to provide the very best care to every cardiac patient who walks through the door requires innovative solutions. Experience using Philips’ ultrasound in the past, along with Philips market-leading reputation in ultrasound, led UHS to add Philips iE33 xMATRIX with Live 3-D TEE to its roster. Live 3-D TEE allows real-time, three-dimensional views of the heart while it’s beating.

Philips introduced the world’s first live 3-D transesophageal transducer five years ago. The company has delivered nearly 5,000 Live 3-D TEE transducers world-wide.
