Ultrasound Imaging

Ultrasound uses sound waves to create images. This section includes breast ultrasound, echocardiography (echo), transthoracic echo (TTE), transesophageal echo (TEE), echo contrast, transducers, ultrasound software and point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS).

An example of Philips' TrueVue technology, which offers photo-realistic rendering and the ability to change the location of the lighting source on 3-D ultrasound images. In this example of two Amplazer transcatheter septal occluder devices in the heart, the operator demonstrating the product was able to push the lighting source behind the devices into the other chamber of the heart. This illuminated a hole that was still present that the occluders did not seal.
