A New Era in Premium Ultrasound
The Harry T. Mangurian, Jr. Diagnostic Imaging Center now is offering enhanced imaging capabilities with the Philips EPIQ ultrasound system.
The advanced capabilities of EPIQ help us provide improved clinical information from each scan, fast and consistent exams, and advances such as nSIGHT Imaging. Designed to reduce repeat exams and limit the need for other imaging modalities, nSIGHT Imaging is able to operate at high frame rates while maintaining superb resolution and penetration even on technically difficult patients. This allows for a smooth exam the first time, increasing reproducibility and minimizing repeat exams.
EPIQ has the most powerful Philips architecture ever applied to ultrasound imaging, touching all aspects of acoustic acquisition and processing, allowing the evolution of ultrasound to a more definitive modality. We aim to reduce patient stress and waiting time with comfortable and fast studies.
The Philips proprietary nSIGHT Imaging architecture introduces a revolutionary approach to forming ultrasound images. Unlike conventional systems that form the image line by line, nSIGHT Imaging creates images with exceptional resolution down to the pixel level to allow us to enhance diagnostic confidence and which may help reduce the need for additional diagnostic imaging studies.
EPIQ is supported by the Philips family of proprietary xMATRIX transducers and leading-edge Anatomical Intelligence Ultrasound (AIUS), which is designed to elevate the ultrasound system from a passive to an actively adaptive device. With advanced organ modeling, image slicing, and proven quantification, exams are easy to perform, more reproducible, and deliver new levels of clinical information that may help reduce the need for more invasive procedures or for exams that expose patients to radiation dose.
In addition, EPIQ is almost silent when running, helping to create a more soothing environment for patients. A noise test determined that EPIQ runs at 37-41 dB, which is equivalent to the sound of a library. EPIQ consumes 25% less power than the existing premium ultrasound offered by Philips.
