Philips Medical Systems is a global health technology company that develops and manufactures products and services for personal health, diagnosis and treatment, connected care and health informatics.
Diagnostic medical ultrasound imaging uses high-frequency sound waves to create video images of the inside of the body. These images are used for assessing the structure and function of organs, for investigating gynecologic abnormalities, and for fetal profiling. Ultrasound scanners transmit short bursts of sound into a patient's body and analyze the returning echoes to determine their amplitude, the depth of the reflecting structures, and the direction from which the echoes are returning. This information is processed and then used to generate video images that can be viewed live or recorded and played back.
Point-of-Care (POC) ultrasound machines can be cart-based, laptop-based, or handheld. Therefore, they all have a small footprint and can be easily moved around a healthcare facility. POC ultrasound is often used by a treating physician at an office or the patient’s bedside, as opposed to the patient being referred to an imaging specialist. They also offer a variety of optional application-specific transducers: curved linear-array transducers, primarily used for abdominal and obstetric applications; flat linear-array transducers, primarily used for superficial and vascular applications; sector—also referred to as phased—transducers, primarily used for cardiac applications.
