Philips Launches HD7 Ultrasound in U.S. Market

April 8, 2008 - Philips launched the latest addition to its HD ultrasound family of products, the Philips HD7, in the U.S. designed for high-volume use in cardiovascular, OB/GYN, anesthesiology, oncology, electrophysiology, stress echo, pediatric, orthopedic, urologic, emergency and other applications.

The Philips HD7 Ultrasound system was introduced to Europe in March at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) in Vienna. The system draws upon an array of features and capabilities available on high-end Philips systems and puts them into a reportedly affordable, mobile unit that is suited for a wide variety of clinical settings.

The system provides grayscale and color Doppler imaging with one button optimization, as well as Tissue Harmonic Imaging. In addition, the HD7 features a wide array of transducers, an adjustable flat panel LCD monitor, advanced imaging, measurement and quantification technologies.

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 aim to provide high sensitivity and detail resolution. Features include iSCAN one button image optimization, multiple transducer ports, DICOM connectivity and 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 HD family of performance systems now includes the small, utilitarian HD3, the new HD7 and the popular, feature-rich HD11.
