Phillips Healthcare EPIQ Elite Ultrasound

EPIQ Elite Overview

EPIQ Elite was released on February 7, 2019, as a line of ultrasound scanners. Today, EPIQ Elite is the entry-level in the EPIQ line. Bringing new technologies with it, the EPIQ Elite comes in two styles: EPIQ Elite for General Imaging and EPIQ Elite for Obstetrics and Gynecology. The EPIQ Elite for General Imaging is geared towards the use in vascular assessment.

At the same time, the EPIQ Elite for Obstetrics and Gynecology provides excellent 3D images for better and more accurate fetal assessments. The EPIQ Elite looks very similar to its predecessor, the EPIQ 7, except for its new 24" HD MAX monitor, which brings higher quality imaging, more vibrant colors, and better power efficiency.

EPIQ Elite Features

The EPIQ Elite brings much more than just a new monitor. XRES Pro is Philips's new next-generation high definition image processor, which helps the human eye better perceive subtle patterns giving the patient a more precise image. The revolutionary nSight imaging more than doubles the frame rate without impacting the quality. It also corrects focus, showing more accurate results. This feature helps the EPIQ Elite process 5x more data than its software-based opponent. That is the equivalent of 10dvds/second instead of 2dvds/second. With features like XRES Pro and nSight, the EPIQ Elite takes general imaging to new heights.

To help improve fetal assessing, The Elite features a new ergonomic transducer called the V9-2, which is the first of its kind to possess Philips Healthcare's PureWave technology. The V9-2 transducer, in addition to Philips TrueVue image processing mode, lets healthcare workers manipulate a virtual light source around the fetus to bring lifelike imaging results to the exam room. On top of that, the xPlane imaging feature allows for faster and more accurate data collection, cutting the exam time drastically. This leads to more time the clinician may have with the patient.

Philips Healthcare has a long history of providing top-quality ultrasound equipment. Their revolutionary designs are changing how clinicians offer imaging services to patients, resulting in faster results and more prompt actions. It is no wonder why AUS has chosen such a company to work with.
