Uniquely designed for elastography – revealing more definitive information on tissue stiffness

The EPIQ platform supports both strain and shear wave methods of elastography. Highly sensitive strain imaging can be used to rapidly assess relative tissue stiffness values across a variety of applications. Shear wave elastography utilizes a unique pulsing scheme to generate and detect the propagation speed of shear waves, providing an absolute measure of tissue stiffness. In addition, the EPIQ platform is designed to support the future of elastography including quantitative real-time shear wave imaging across a variety of transducers and applications.

Strain elastography

Philips strain elastography incorporates nanometer tissue strain tracking technology – a highly sensitive method of tracking tissue deformation requiring virtually no external compression for reproducible strain imaging results. Inherent patient physiologic movements provide the compression to generate the elastography image.

Shear wave elastography

ElastPQ uses ultrasound shear wave elastography to provide a non-invasive, reproducible and easily performed method of assessing tissue stiffness. A special pulse sequence technique using existing transducers produces shear waves in tissue and measures the propagation speed of the waves. Now tissue stiffness samples can be acquired during a routine ultrasound examination of the liver. According to the latest studies,1 using shear wave elastography may help reduce or avoid conventional liver biopsies. Many studies are suggesting that instead of a costly and painful biopsy procedure, an easy ultrasound exam becomes the routine method to assess liver disease status.

Fast and effective image fusion and needle navigation

Make confident decisions even in challenging diagnostic cases with fully integrated fusion capabilities that feature streamlined workflows to allow clinicians to achieve fast and effective fusion of CT/MR/PET with live ultrasound.

By combining imaging modalities directly on the ultrasound system, you now have access to an even more powerful diagnostic tool with advanced visualization allowing for fast clinical decisions.

Fusion and navigation

New Auto Registration – image fusion simplicity
EPIQ’s exclusive Anatomical Intelligence Ultrasound (AIUS) comes to image fusion with automated registration of CT and ultrasound volumes. Anatomical information within the CT volume is analyzed and automatically matched with the ultrasound structures, allowing the user to achieve image fusion within seconds – in 1/10 the standard alignment time. Now image fusion is quick and simple, allowing you to focus less on setup and more on the procedure.

Advanced needle navigation
Needle navigation is a performance-enhancing tool for challenging interventional cases such as a hard-to-visualize small-lesion biopsy or difficult-to-access ablations that are close to critical structures. Procedures may now be completed in less time and with fewer confirmatory scans.

A reusable adaptive needle tracker and an expanded range of coaxial needle tip tracked instruments offer you a wide range of compatibility with biopsy and ablation devices depending on the degree of procedure complexity.

Expand fusion and navigation capabilities through a range of transducers across applications, including the PureWave X6-1 xMATRIX, PureWave C5-1, C9-2 (abdominal), L12-5 (breast and small parts), C10-4ec (prostate), and S5-1 (transcranial fusion).
