nSIGHT Imaging is a totally different approach to ultrasound
Philips proprietary nSIGHT Imaging architecture introduces a totally different approach to forming ultrasound images without compromise. Unlike conventional systems that form the image line by line, nSIGHT creates images with optimal resolution down to the pixel level. nSIGHT Imaging incorporates the use of a precision beamformer along with powerful massive parallel processing. This extraordinary architecture captures an enormous amount of acoustic data and then reconstructs in real time optimally focused beams, creating precise resolution for every pixel in the image.
xMATRIX for leading-edge ultrasound transducer technology
No other premium ultrasound system can run the complete suite of the world’s most innovative ultrasound transducers. With the touch of a button, xMATRIX offers all modes in a single transducer: 2D, 3D/4D, Live xPlane, Live MPR, MPR, Doppler, color Doppler, and CPA.
EPIQ 7 architecture supports our Philips exclusive Anatomical Intelligence Ultrasound (AIUS), designed to elevate the ultrasound system from a passive to an actively adaptive device. With advanced organ modeling (with xMATRIX technology), and proven quantification, exams are easy to perform, more reproducible, and deliver new levels of clinical information. AIUS ranges from automating repetitive steps to full, computer-driven analysis with minimal user interaction - all using anatomic intelligence and all providing the results you need.
Real Time iSCAN (AutoSCAN) automatically optimizes gain and TGC to continuously provide a high-quality image.
Advanced workflow for superb ergonomics, amazing mobility
EPIQ 7 has completely reinvented the premium ultrasound user experience. Ease of use, workflow, ergonomics, and mobility. We’ve revolutionized how you interact with an ultrasound system from every standpoint, and kept it beautifully intuitive and very quiet.
Excellent ergonomics may help reduce repetitive stress injuries
EPIQ's extended-range control panel and monitor can be articulated for proper ergonomic alignment whether sitting or standing. The large 21" wide screen monitor facilitates easy viewing in virtually any environment. EPIQ 7 has four transducer connectors with ambient lighting for ease in transducer selection during an exam.
Tablet-like touch interface for easier navigation
Navigate quickly to system functions with the tablet-like touch interface, with 40% less reach and 15% fewer steps to complete an exam.
Multimodality DICOM is integrated for easy reviewing
View DICOM images such as CT, NM, MRI, mammography, and ultrasound on your EPIQ system. Easily compare past and current studies without the use of an external reading station, and even review these Multimodality images while live imaging. Capture side-by-side comparison images as part of the exam documentation.
PureWave – the power to image technically difficult patients
Philips exclusive PureWave crystal technology is clinically proven to improve penetration in difficult-to-image patients. The pure, uniform PureWave crystals are up to 85% more efficient than conventional materials, resulting in exceptional performance. This technology allows for improved penetration and excellent detailed resolution.
Fast and effective image fusion and needle navigation
Make confident decisions even in challenging diagnostic cases with new fully integrated fusion capabilities that feature streamlined workflow to allow clinicians to achieve fast and effective fusion of CT/MR/PET with live ultrasound. By combining imaging modalities directly on the ultrasound system, you now have access to an even more powerful diagnostic tool with advanced visualization allowing for fast clinical decisions.
Simplify liver assessment with non-invasive tools. Obtaining liver stiffness measurements with Philips shear wave elastography is surprisingly fast and easy even on difficult-to-image patients. It is non-invasive, making it a quick, simple step for sonographers and virtually painless for patients.
MicroCPA for exceptional small vessel visualization
Obtaining flow information in small low-flow vascular structures has traditionally been a challenge. With EPIQ’s new MicroCPA feature, visualization of low velocity micro circulation is quick and simple, giving you more diagnostic confidence when evaluating organ perfusion or small vascular beds.
The EPIQ 7 is the lightest in its class; it's easily transported on both carpet and tile. Place it in sleep mode, move it and boot up in seconds. The monitor folds down to reduce overall system height for transport, and the integrated cable hooks and catch tray are ideal for mobile studies.
Library quiet for small examination rooms
EPIQ 7 is almost silent when running A noise test determined that EPIQ 7 runs at 37-41 dB, which is equivalent to the sound of a library. This is extremely welcome in small scanning/examination rooms.
Shoulder ultrasound: A step-by-step approach
Ultrasound exams of the shoulders can be difficult to perform due to the anatomy of the human body and the long learning curve required to achieve a satisfactory examination. However, demand for this inexpensive and relatively painless procedure is growing everyday so it’s important to understand the right approach.
Ergonomic and lightweight, our broad range of transducers is available in multiple configurations, enabling better penetration with less artifacts. Learn more about our full range of transducers below, and detailed instructions on care and maintenance.
