Philips launches new cardiology ultrasound system

7 September 2005

Stockholm, Sweden. Royal Philips Electronics launched the new Philips HD11 XE cardiology ultrasound system at the European Society of Cardiology conference, hosted in Stockholm. The system is the latest version of the HD11 ultrasound system with a flat panel monitor, and is designed to meet the specific needs of cardiologists through more powerful cardiac capabilities that allow advanced quantification to make faster and more specific treatment decisions.

The HD11 XE adds a variety of features to help physicians more accurately measure heart chambers, wall motion and ejection fraction. The system also features QLAB quantification software to help physicians improve their diagnostic capability by providing non-invasive assessment of cardiac anatomy and function, including:

  • Strain Quantification, using Tissue Doppler Imaging (TDI) provides tools to quantify velocity and evaluate patients for synchronization therapy.
  • Automated intima media thickness (IMT) measurements of carotid and other superficial arteries.
  • Region of Interest (ROI) quantification to analyze pixel intensities from 2D or colour Doppler data sets in up to 10 user-defined regions, and graph them over time.

The Philips HD11 XE system was designed to meet the growing need of many healthcare institutions for a cardiovascular ultrasound system that can quickly handle the scanning needs of a widely divergent patient population and the increasing demand for echo examinations.
