Final CEE consent
xMATRIX is our most leading-edge, versatile ultrasound transducer technology available today. It allows you to see more clearly, explore more fully and resolve more thoroughly, making exams faster and easier for both clinicians and patients. xMATRIX technology enables quick and easy volume acquisition, supports multiple interrogation capabilities, and provides views not possible with 2D imaging – and all with remarkable image quality. Confidently assess anatomy and function, easily identify abnormalities, and fully appreciate structural relationships in the 3D space.

Enhanced workflow


With the touch of a button, xMATRIX offers all modes in a single transducer: 2D, 3D/4D, Live 3D Echo, Live xPlane, Live 3D Zoom, Live 3D Full Volume, iRotate, Live MPR, MPR, M-mode, Doppler, color Doppler, and CPA. No need to suspend acquisition to switch transducers. You can view ultrasound xMATRIX volume data on your PACs the same as you view CT and MR images. Once the data is acquired, the system captures the X, Y, Z, or iSlice MPR cineloops at the push of a button and sends them to your PACS. View, slice and interrogate at any time to suit your schedule.

Extreme versatility


xMATRIX transducers support a wide range of clinical applications, including adult and pediatric cardiac exams; abdominal, vascular, obstetrical and gynecological exams; and cardiac and abdominal interventional procedures. xMATRIX is available on the EPIQ 7 and CX50 xMATRIX systems.


Power and performance


xMATRIX transducers raise the bar of scanning performance. They harness the power of 150 computer boards, with fully-sampled elements ranging from 2,500 to over 9,000 for 360-degree focusing and steering. And when combined with Philips nSIGHT and PureWave crystal technologies, they are even more powerful.





Live volume imaging allows the acquisition and rendering of full volume data at true real-time frame rates with exceptional isovoxel resolution.

Live xPlane imaging




Live xPlane imaging creates two full-resolution planes simultaneously, allowing you to capture twice as much clinical information in the same amount of time as conventional 2D imaging.




Scanning comfort

While xMATRIX transducers are powerhouses of performance, they’re also easy to use. Their ergonomic design provides a slim, easy grip, for scanning comfort throughout the day.

Philips xMATRIX and the abdominal exam


The X6-1 xMATRIX transducer presents a new level of imaging performance for abdominal exams. With over 9,000 elements – 35 times more than today’s conventional transducers – the X6-1 provides ultra-thin slice imaging for improved textural pattern recognition and superb discrimination of micro-structures in the near, mid, and far fields. You can implement elevation compounding on the X6-1 with no frame-rate penalty for enhanced speckle reduction and contrast resolution at all depths. Use the X6-1 to obtain a full 90° x 90° volume sweep of the liver in less than 0.25 seconds.

Go from 2D to Live Volume at the press of a button with xMATRIX technology

With the press of a button, you can go from 2D to 3D, 4D, MPR, Live xPlane, and Live Volume, Live MPR, MPR, Doppler, color Doppler, and CPA modes with the X6-1 transducer. If you’re doing a conventional ultrasound technology exam and spot an anomaly or lesion you want to explore further, document or characterize, there’s no need to switch to a dedicated 3D transducer. The easy mode selection also facilitates interventional procedures.

Proven performance

In a study of 293 cases, users judged that volume imaging changed the diagnosis in an impressive 32 percent of cases, while in 62 percent of the cases it provided additional information that increased diagnostic confidence. *
proven performance


Clinical trials have shown that Live xPlane reduces the number of orthogonal turns required for an abdominal exam from 20 to 30 to fewer than five, and reduces sonographer wrist strain by an average of 70 percent. xMATRIX imaging enables you to view this liver cyst in multiple formats for extensive interrogation.
