The newly launched system is designed to increase diagnostic confidence and simplify workflows to increase patient interaction and reduce the need for repeat scans, the Amsterdam-based company said.
“The Epiq CVx brings together advanced image quality, quantification and intelligence specifically for the cardiologist. I was impressed with the TrueVue feature, which elevates 3D ultrasound imaging to a totally new level and could impact diagnostic ability of echocardiography in different clinical scenarios, like better understanding of the anatomy of mitral valves,” Dr. Roberto Lang of the University of Chicago Medicine said in a prepared statement.
“As pressures on healthcare systems around the world continue to increase, cardiologists have more patients to examine in less time. By using advanced 3D organ modeling, image slicing, and proven quantification, anatomical intelligence is helping make ultrasound exams easier to perform and more reproducible. With the Epiq CVx and its cardiology-centric design, clinicians can perform fast exams with enhanced diagnostic information. The Epiq CVxi is our third-generation integrated ultrasound-angiography cath lab solution for real-time, workflow-optimized image guidance and advanced quantification for structural heart procedures,” cardiac ultrasound GM David Handler said in a press release.
In June, Philips said that it acquired U.K.-based Remote Diagnostic Technologies for an undisclosed amount.
