“The Compact system gives me superb image quality for such a small portable system, providing us with the results we need,” said Dr. Marcela Böhm-Vélez, MD, Weinstein Imaging Associates, Pittsburgh, USA. “We find the system to be extremely user-friendly, particularly as it matches that of our EPIQ Elites we also have in our clinic. With the added battery, it also gives us the flexibility to move between patients more quickly.”
Premium quality ultrasound imaging has previously been confined to larger cart-based systems, which while technically portable, are typically located within a specific department. This often means that patients need to be moved from a hospital ward to the appropriate department for their ultrasound exams, which can negatively impact the patient experience and create logistical problems that limit patient throughput. The portability of the new Ultrasound Compact 5000 Series brings quality ultrasound to the patient wherever they are located in the hospital, with advanced features not typically found on a portable system, including AI-powered automation tools.
This newest innovative system also features Philips Collaboration Live secure real-time telemedicine software, with the ability to call on additional clinical expertise via secure voice, text, screen sharing, and video streaming from anywhere with a mobile or internet connection. Collaboration Live even allows a remote user to control the unit’s settings to acquire diagnostic quality images, reducing the need for follow-up scans and patients having to travel to a central hospital facility .
Philips Ultrasound Compact System 5000 Series complements Philips’ comprehensive portfolio of diagnostic ultrasound systems for every level of care and clinical setting, ranging from its ultra-mobile Lumify Handheld Ultrasound and hand-carried tablet InnoSight, and value-based ClearVue ultrasound systems, to its high-end and premium ultrasound Affiniti and EPIQ Elite systems. The Compact 5000 Series, which recently received FDA 510(k) clearance and pending CE mark, joins Philips’ expanded ultrasound family with the added benefit of EPIQ Elite and Affiniti workflow commonality and lifetime value.
