Philips can now market its Epiq premium ultrasound system


Philips has received 510(k) FDA clearance for its EPIQ ultrasound system. The new system combines nSIGHT technology with anatomical intelligence, allowing clinicians to visualise deeper levels of anatomical detail and contrast resolution on patients of all types

A press release reports that anatomical intelligence provides advanced organ modelling, image slicing, and proven quantification, making exams easier to perform, more reproducible, and delivering new levels of clinical information. It adds that combining this intelligent technology with the precision clarity of nSIGHT Imaging makes for a faster more intuitive ultrasound system.

“The image quality of Epiq is truly impressive,” said Roberto Lang, director of Cardiac Imaging and professor of Medicine, University of Chicago in the USA. “I also appreciate the numerous design elements that make Epiq easier to operate including the standby battery, easy to connect transducers, and portability; it is clear that Epiq is a system built for today’s healthcare environment.”
