Philips’ New Ultrasound Targets Women’s Needs

January 27, 2009 - At Arab Health 2009 Royal Philips launched a new ultrasound system, the HD9, which focuses on helping clinicians deliver high quality care for a full range of women’s health needs.

The HD9 combines advanced imaging technology, including 3D and 4D capabilities, designed for an easy-to-use system for obstetrics, gynecology and breast imaging.

The HD9 system delivers a set of workflow features that help ensure imaging and processing are as efficient as possible, potentially saving time in busy clinics. The HD9 has also been built to withstand rigorous use and provide all the capabilities needed for day-to-day applications. It also includes advanced features such as intuitive 3D and 4D imaging designed for those new to volume imaging as well as experienced users.

As well as women’s health, the HD9 is also able to cater for applications, including general imaging, adult and pediatric cardiology, general pediatric and urology.

The HD9 is part of Philips’ extensive HD family of cost-effective ultrasound systems, which also includes the HD3, the HD7, the HD11 XE and the HD15 introduced in 2008. Philips HD systems can be configured for a full range of applications.

The HD9’s array of features include:
• Philips Live iSlice, which enables clinicians to focus on specific areas of interest within a volume and find images with the best views and content, designed for confident diagnoses.
• Spatio-Temporal Image Correlation (STIC) to evaluate fetal heart anatomy and function by allowing clinicians to create a volume image that can be displayed and interrogated during playback.
• Tissue Specific Imaging technology additionally allows the system to be optimized for a specific patient or examination type, to provide excellent imaging quality with little need for optimization.
• Tissue aberration correction, which is said to offer speed of sound compensation for clear and accurate data even in difficult to image patients.

The HD9 will be available in many countries from March 2009, including North America.
