Philips iU22 xMATRIX Ultrasound SystemA revolution in premium performance ultrasound
The Philips iU22 xMATRIX ultrasound system is premium performance ultrasound
like youve never seen before. Unique xMATRIX technology on the X6-1 PureWave
transducer harnesses the power of over 9,000 active elements, more than 35 times
greater than todays conventional transducers, to capture crisp, high-resolution
images of even technically challenging patients.
The iU22 xMATRIX makes it easy to add 3D imaging to any exam by removing the
barriers to volume imaging. And a host of workflow enhancers facilitate faster
exams, enabling image optimization with just the touch of a button.
Obtain exceptional 2D and 3D image quality from a single transducer
The new X6-1 PureWave xMATRIX transducer delivers outstanding 2D images, and
then, with the touch of a button, converts to 3D to provide a more complete
picture of anatomy without workflow disruption. The X6-1 gives you the power to
capture a volume in just one second that equals the quality of your 2D images.
The ultra-thin, targeted beam provides extraordinary tissue uniformity while
decreasing noise surrounding the region of interest, resulting in fewer
artifacts when compared to conventional beams.
Real-time, simultaneous imaging in two planes
The X6-1 PureWave xMATRIX transducer features xPlane, which allows imaging in
two planes simultaneously, without manually rotating the transducer. Because you
no longer have to rotate the transducer to see the second plane, you dont risk
losing a tiny object during manual rotation. Clinical trials have show that
xPlane speeds workflow, improves imaging precision, and has the potential to
minimize repetitive stress injuries.
Volume viewing on any PACS
For the first time ever, you can send 3D MPRs to any PACS system, making volume
images available wherever they are needed for decision-making, review and
storage. Once the volume data is acquired, the iU22 will capture the X, Y, and Z
MPR cineloops at the push of a button and then send them to your PACS.
Gain a better perspective of needle location during biopsies and ablations
The iU22 xMATRIX provides integrated image fusion and instrument navigation
capabilities with PercuNav. The PercuNav system acts like a GPS for medical
instruments when guiding soft tissue biopsy and ablation procedures. The
combined iU22/PercuNav solution transforms two dimensional patient images into
dynamic, fused imaging maps that combine CT or MR imaging with live ultrasound.
Enhancements in breast imaging
The iU22 xMATRIXs strain-based breast elastography feature provides a highly
sensitive exam tool for detecting breast anomalies. The Advanced Breast Tissue
Specific Imaging (TSI) preset on the L12-5 transducer, helps users distinguish
between cystic and solid masses in the breast.
Tissue aberration correction on breast transducers compensates for speed of
sound variations, improving detail resolution and conspicuity of breast lesions.
With the push of a button you can achieve optimum diagnostic performance across
the spectrum of breast architecture types.
SmartExam tools deliver efficiency
SmartExam guided workflow on the iU22 xMATRIX increases consistency and speed by
automatically planning and processing application protocols. With SmartExam
Shuffle you can send images to PACS in the order they were assigned. A study
found that SmartExam decreased exam time by 30-50% while improving consistency
and quality of exams.
Reduce failed ultrasound exams by as much as 69% with the C5-1 transducer
A study on technically difficult patients at six sites in North America and
Europe using the C5-1 PureWave transducer has shown that this technology can
positively impact your ultrasound lab. Exam times have been reduced up to 38%
and studies have shown a reduction in pain and fatigue from scanning in 29% to
85% of exams
