Philips Introduces its New HD7 Ultrasound System

March 10, 2008 - Royal Philips Electronics last week unveiled the HD7, the latest addition to its HD ultrasound family of products at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) in Vienna.

The Philips HD7 ultrasound system draws upon an array of features and capabilities available on high-end Philips systems and puts them into an affordable, mobile unit designed for a wide variety of clinical settings.

The system provides gray scale and color Doppler imaging with simple one button optimization, as well as tissue harmonic imaging. In addition, the HD7 features a wide array of transducers, an adjustable flat panel monitor, proven system architecture and software, and advanced imaging, measurement and quantification technologies.

The company says the HD7 was developed with clinicians in mind, and the ergonomic, easy-to-use system can meet the demands for high-volume use in cardiovascular, OB/GYN, anesthesiology, oncology, electrophysiology, stress echo, pediatric, orthopedic, urologic, and emergency applications.

The HD7 has a broadband digital beamformer to capture and preserve more tissue information than conventional narrowband systems and its wide dynamic range and digital focal tuning provide exceptional sensitivity and detail resolution. Features include iSCAN one button image optimization, multiple transducer ports, DICOM connectivity, and easy data recording to CD or USB. In addition, optional off-line QLAB quantification software capability allows clinicians to perform post-examination image review and analysis on a PC.

The HD7 is not currently available for sale in the U.S.
