Small Parts

Small Parts Imaging is one of the fastest growing segments of ultrasound exams for clinicians around the world.  Its wide array of applications include assessing diseases and disorders of superficial organs like breasts, testicles and thyroid, as well as assessing musculoskeletal injuries like sprains and tears, making Small Parts ultrasound a vital tool for improving patient care.  As a leader in health technology, Philips has developed the first ultrasound solution for Small Parts assessment, providing all-in-one functionality with both exceptional imaging and complementary clinical tools. Four key features work together to effectively assess, monitor and treat Small Parts, helping clinicians deliver exceptional patient care.

The ultimate small parts solution

PureWave Imaging

The Philips eL18-4 transducer incorporates both our highest frequency and ultra-broadband acoustic specification in a PureWave array design. This innovative transducer features a multi-row array configuration for full electronic focusing of the elevation plane. Elevation focusing works in conjunction with azimuthal focusing to provide thin-slice imaging for exceptional detail resolution and tissue uniformity from near to far depth of field.  This supports a diverse range of clinical applications while delivering extraordinary imaging and depth-of-field performance.

MicroFlow Imaging

The eL18-4 supports Philips MicroFlow Imaging, a proprietary method for blood flow detection providing an innovative approach to assess vascular beds. MicroFlow Imaging overcomes many of the barriers associated with conventional methods to detect small vessel blood flow with high resolution and minimal artefacts .  MicroFlow Imaging maintains high frame rate and image quality and applies advanced artefacts reduction techniques. 2D image subtraction, blending and side/side display options offer excellent visualisation versatility across multiple clinical applications.

Full solution elastography

The eL18-4 transducer is designed to support a complete elastography solution. Highly sensitive strain imaging can be used to rapidly assess relative tissue stiffness values across a variety of applications and shear wave elastography  utilises a unique pulsing scheme to generate and detect the propagation speed of shear waves, providing an absolute measure of tissue stiffness. The ability to combine both methods of elastography and deliver excellent imaging performance is an extraordinary clinical accomplishment that helps advance clinical practice.

Precision Biopsy

Biopsy procedures, for many practices, are a routine part of an ultrasound examination. Using precision-guided biopsy techniques provides confidence in obtaining tissue targets to reduce multiple needle passes. The eL18-4 is compatible with the CIVCO Verza Guidance System, providing an advanced biopsy guidance system with virtually no dead zone. In addition, needle visualisation software optimises display of needle reflections for enhanced confidence during procedures.
Next generation imaging

XRES Pro, the next-generation image processing

 

At real time frame rates, XRES Pro uses multi-parametric precision filters that subdivide image elements, analyse this data and then apply advanced algorithms to sharpen borders and interfaces and provide superb tissue conspicuity. XRES Pro also offers enhanced assessment of plaque morphology. XRES Pro allows you full adjustability to match the level of enhancement to clinical imaging requirements for elevated diagnostic confidence with virtually all patients.
