Combining unprecedented 2D and 3D image quality in the same transducer and a host of easy-to-use quantification, clinical performance, and information management tools, the new iE33 xMATRIX echo system addresses the clinical needs of managing patients with cardiac disease, including heart failure, valvular disease, and congenital heart disease.
Versatile X5-1 transducer With 3,000 elements and breakthrough PureWave xMATRIX technology, the X5-1 supports virtually any cardiac ultrasound exam, including 3D, 2D, color flow, M-mode, PW/CW Doppler, Tissue Doppler imaging, and contrast-enhanced exams. It delivers outstanding image quality and a new handle design with relaxed grip to reduce user fatigue and improve scanning stability.
Acquire crisp, high-resolution 2D images, even on your most difficult patients.
Use iRotate electronic rotation to more easily obtain challenging views, such as apical 2 chamber, and to reduce foreshortening.
Switch from 2D to 3D imaging at the touch of a button to quickly integrate volume imaging into routine exams.
Image the entire heart in 3D, in real time with Live Volume, and enlarge and rotate volumes with iCrop.
Reduce your stress in stress echo The new Philips iE33 xMATRIX automates stress echo exams, so they’re fast and consistent. Use iRotate Stress Echo in combination with the X5-1 transducer to complete an entire stress echo protocol. You can include acquisition of 2-chamber, 3-chamber, and 4-chamber 2D images all from the standard windows following peak patient exertion—without rotating the transducer.
As you move electronically around the heart capturing baseline images, making any necessary small angle adjustments, these adjustments will be saved, along with gain and depth settings, for instant recall when you are in your post-exercise or -pharmacologic stage. A much less stressful stress echo solution that benefits both you and your patients.
With CMQ-Stress, you can quantify 2D stress echo studies and communicate global and regional LV function during each stage. And Live 3D stress echo with iSlice lets you add volume acquisition to your stress protocol and slice it later for the best views and content to make informed diagnoses—with confidence.
Innovation and Technology
xMATRIX uses breakthrough array technology with elements smaller than a human hair, providing volume acquisitions of the beating heart with truly remarkable image quality. Our xMATRIX transducers are ergonomically designed and harness the power of 150 computer boards.
Broadband beamforming uses the full range of ultrasound frequencies to capture the entire tissue signature information, preserving the quantity and quality of data through capture and preservation of the entire bandwidth of ultrasound signals.
Live 3D Echo imaging brings you true real-time, 3D volume rendering, live, and instantaneously. Live 3D is expanding the clinical utility of echo by taking echo to places it’s never been before – into surgical planning, the EP lab and beyond.
SonoCT imaging technology uses transmit beam-steering techniques to obtain coplanar, tomographic images from different viewing angles, then combines these micro-angulated images into a single compounded image at real-time frame rates.
Tissue aberration correction technology corrects for speed of sound changes through adipose tissue, sharpens spatial resolution, reduces the effects of acoustic beam distortion, and improves tissue uniformity throughout the depth of view.
