Philips Affiniti 70
It understands your everyday
Philips Affiniti ultrasound system
Designed for balance
You always go above and beyond to provide the best care to your patients. But you are expected to do so with less time, fewer resources, and higher patient volume.
To balance these many demands, you need diagnostic information quickly – but not at the expense of accuracy. You need advanced functionality – but not at the expense of ease of use. You need a system that is ergonomic – but built to last for the daily rigors of high patient volume.
Philips Affiniti 70 ultrasound system helps you achieve this balance. Engineered for efficiency and reliability and powered by Philips superb performance, it brings you outstanding image quality, walk-up usability, and broad applicability. Its precision performance and intuitive design help you provide elegant, efficient care – every day.
Workflow meets wow
With Philips Affiniti 70, workflow meets wow. The system addresses the everyday need to scan quickly and deliver results efficiently, while incorporating those innovations that make Philips ultrasound the choice of those who demand quality images and proven clinical applications.
Affiniti 70’s precision beamforming, PureWave technology, Tissue Specific Presets (TSP), and efficiency and automation tools deliver both performance and workflow for confident throughput.
Scan technically difficult patients with ease
PureWave transducers are designed to increase penetration in technically difficult patients so that one transducer can facilitate diagnostic confidence on easy patients as well as difficult patients. It is the only system in its class with PureWave imaging across all major clinical segments. PureWave’s power is strengthened by Affiniti 70’s precision beamforming, which features a wide dynamic range to deliver superb spatial and contrast resolution, outstanding tissue uniformity, fewer artifacts and reduced image clutter.
Tissue Specific Presets (TSP) automatically adjust over 7500 parameters to optimize the transducer for the specific exam type, producing excellent image quality with little or no need for image adjustment.
Affiniti 70 is the only system in its class with PureWave imaging across all major clinical segments, allowing you to scan a wide range of technically difficult patients.
- PureWave C5-1 and the PureWave C9-2 for abdominaland OB patients
- PureWave S5-1 for cardiology patients and transcranial applications
- PureWave C10-3v for early obstetrical and gynecological exams
More definitive clinical information about tissue stiffness
Affiniti 70 is the only system in its class that supports both strain and shear wave elastography to assess tissue stiffness. Highly sensitive strain imaging requires no external compression and can be used to assess relative tissue stiffness across a variety of applications, including small parts, breast, and gynecology.
ElastPQ shear wave elastography utilizes unique pulsing schemes to generate and measure the propagation speed of shear waves through tissue, which produces an absolute measure of tissue stiffness that has proven helpful to clinicians in assessing diseases such as liver fibrosis. Easy to use and reproducible, ElastPQ shear wave is a simple and easy method to help monitor patients at risk for liver disease and potentially reduce the number of painful and expensive biopsy procedures.
Automation that leads to everyday efficiency
Affiniti 70 incorporates Philips-exclusive Anatomical Intelligence Ultrasound. It provides advanced functionality, including global longitudinal strain (GLS) and validated 2D ejection fraction (EF) in 10 seconds.
Automation tools save time
Philips Affiniti 70 system is equipped with automation features that reduce repetitive button pushes and steps, leading to enhanced workflow.
• Real-time iSCAN (AutoSCAN)
Automatically and continuously optimizes gain and TGC
• Auto Doppler for vascular imaging
Color-box positioning and sample volume placement in just three steps, with an average of 67.9% fewer button pushes
• SmartExam guided workflow
Increases consistency, reduces keystrokes, and decreases exam time by 30%-50% by automatically planning and processing application protocols

Comfort meets competence
Philips leverages the experiences of its customers to design Affiniti 70 to address the challenges of daily scanning. We understand the reality of tight spaces, high patient volume, technically difficult patients, and time constraints, and we’ve designed the system with thoughtful details to help lighten your workload.
You won’t notice it’s there unless it’s gone, but users have reported that easy clip, our innovative cable management solution, keeps cables tangle-free and reduces damage while decreasing cable strain to enhance comfort while scanning.
With image replication and TGCs on its tablet touchscreen, Affiniti 70 was designed to reduce reach and button pushes.
Affiniti 70’s friendly design and library-quiet operation enhance patient comfort.
To reduce the time required for mobile scans, the system can be put to sleep in two seconds, and then moved to a new location, where it starts up in just seconds.
With multimodality query retrieve, you can review DICOM CT, NM, MR, mammography, and ultrasound images without using an external reading station.
The intuitive, intelligently designed user interface and system architecture have been validated by studies that show that users with ultrasound experience require minimal training on system use to be able to complete an exam.
Reduced reach and button pushes
To enhance exam efficiency, Affiniti 70 places relevant, easy-to-learn controls right at your fingertips, streamlining workflow. Because 80% of ultrasound clinicians experience work-related pain, and more than 20% suffer a career-ending injury,2 we’ve designed our intuitive, tablet-like touchscreen interface to reduce reach and button pushes.
Affiniti 70 is designed to make a full day of scanning comfortable. The control panel with 180° of movement and generously sized 21.5 in (54.6 cm) articulating monitor enhance scanning comfort whether standing or sitting. The touchscreen is one of the largest in its class, so you can easily make selections and control scanning while focusing on your patients.
Ready when you need it
At just 184 lb (83.5 kg), Affiniti 70 is one of the lightest in its class and is 16% lighter than its predecessor.† With its small footprint and fold-down monitor, pushing the system down hallways and in tight spaces is easy.
When an exam is finished, a full suite of DICOM and PC format capabilities make information-sharing simple. Structured reporting facilitates patient workflow by giving you the ability to transfer measurements, images and reports over network share, and wireless capability plus easy connection to printers helps you document exams.
