Philips introduces HD15 ultrasound system for smaller healthcare facilities

30 July 2008

Royal Philips Electronics (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHI) has announced the latest addition to its HD ultrasound family of products. The Philips HD15 ultrasound system is a new platform designed to deliver an advanced level of image clarity and broad application support for everyday use in small hospitals, clinics and private practices.

The system may be used as a primary system for some users, particularly those in emerging markets who require a feature-rich system but may not need all of the features of a high-end ultrasound solution.

The HD15 contains multiple usability features to improve workflow, as well as versatile capabilities for a wide range of exam types including general imaging, cardiac, vascular and OB/GYN applications.

In addition, advanced features like contrast-enhanced ultrasound and PureWave transducer technology allow users to perform real-time guidance and evaluation of minimally-invasive treatment procedures and provide more diagnostic confidence on technically challenging patients and pathologies.

“Physicians are increasingly turning to ultrasound to help support the growing demand for diagnostic exams and treatment guidance,” said Anne LeGrand, senior vice president, Ultrasound, for Philips Healthcare. “The HD15 brings capabilities that assure user simplicity and productivity to more clinicians, in a variety of clinical settings worldwide.”
