1.At my practice, I am seeing more high BMI patient that are technically difficult to evaluate, do you have a solution to solve the problem? ( PureWave)
With a complete family of PureWave transducers, your most difficult diagnoses are now easier. Providing a solution to imaging the technically difficult patient was the driving force behind the development of Philips PureWave transducer technology. PureWave transducers deliver extraordinary levels of detail and contrast resolution, and allow for improved penetration at higher frequencies – even on technically difficult patients.

What solution does Philips provide to enhance clinical confidence? (eL18-4)
The Philips eL18-4 PureWave transducer provides superb 2D detail resolution along with the penetration needed for diagnostic confidence in first and second trimester obstetrical examinations. The combination of superb detail resolution and penetration is made possible by the transducer’s advanced PureWave crystal technology with fine-elevation focusing capability.
MicroFlow Imaging (MFI) on the eL18-4, is a proprietary imaging mode designed to detect low volume, low velocity blood flow found in fetal, placental, uterine and ovarian vasculature. MicroFlow Imaging overcomes many of the technical barriers associated with conventional methods to detect small vessel blood flow with high resolution and minimal artifacts. MicroFlow Imaging maintains high frame rate and 2D image quality while applying advanced artifact reduction techniques. New 2D image subtraction, 2D blending and side-by-side display options offer excellent visualization versatility.
How can I improve my workflow with increasing workload..
How can I improve my workflow with the ever increasing patient workload? (aBiometry Assist, SmartExam, aReveal…)
We have multiple feature and enhancements that improve workflow, a few of which are aBiometry Assist, Smart Exams and aReveal.
Virtually every obstetrical ultrasound examination includes standardized measurements of fetal structures to assess fetal age and growth trends. Philips aBiometry AssistA.I. uses anatomical intelligence technology to automatically preplace measurement cursors on selected anatomical structures for measurement (HC, BPD,OFD, AC and FL). User approved measurements are automatically sent to the report. The automated process reduces key stroke and saves time. aBiometry Assist can be incorporated in to Smart Exam system guided protocols to provide even more workflow benefit.
SmartExam protocols is a system-guided feature which facilitate exams with an onscreen menu that guides you through required views by exam type, automatically enters annotation, and builds your report.These protocols have been clinically proven to reduce exam time by up to 50%* by reducing keystrokes and alerting the user to any missed views. It is fast and easy to customize, providing consistent annotation, automatic mode switching, and missed view alerts to streamline exams.
aRevealA.I. is an advanced feature of Philips AIUS that automatically removes extraneous 3D information to quickly and easily reveal the 3D fetal face. Avoid having to perform time consuming manual editing of the 3D fetal face data set. AIUS looks at a patient’s ultrasound data and applies adaptive systems intelligence using 3D anatomical models to create easier and more reproducible results.

How can I improve the communication with my patient about their complex medical conditions? (TrueVue, GlassVue, eL18-4)
TrueVue with its virtual light source gives fetal anatomy a “lifelike appearance”, providing the OB/GYN and mother with realistic images of the fetus. This “Realistic quality” may facilitate diagnostic communication between the physician and patient about the condition of the pregnancy and may promote maternal fetal bonding.
How do I train more colleagues to start using 3D technology?
I am one of the only few skilled 3D users in my practice, how do I train more colleagues to start using 3D technology? (MPR Touch, TouchVue, FlexVue)
We have several workflow enhancements such as TouchVue, MPR Touch, FlexVue and aReveal to make 3D workflow more intuitive and easier to use with the goal of facilitating adoption of this valuable clinical tool.
Working together, Philips TouchVue and MPR Touch are easier, more intuitive methods of 3D workflow than offered traditionally. Just using simple finger gestures on the systems touch panel, the user can easily control 3D volume rotation in all axes and size and position MPR parameters in all views.
Users need the ability to quickly visualize the desired planes of section within large 3D volumes. FlexVue is a highly versatile tool that allows for easy visualization of technically difficult anatomical views from 3D volumes that are essential for diagnosis of OB/GYN pathology. FlexVue displays structures in their entirely in a projected planar view. Unlike traditional editing 3D tools, even when structures are curved, such as the fetal spine and uterus in GYN, they can be easily visualized with FlexVue in their entirety in wide variety of orthogonal planes.
aRevealA.I. is an advanced feature of Philips AIUS that automatically removes extraneous 3D information to quickly and easily reveal the 3D fetal face. Avoid having to perform manual editing of the 3D fetal face data set.

My current 3D transducer is too heavy and difficult to use for prolonged periods of time, it forces me to switch to another transducer. Do you have a more practical 3D solution? (V9-2)
The V9-2 transducer uses the power of PureWave crystal technology to provide premium image quality. The ergonomic form factor and lightest weight of any major manufacture, makes for a transducer that is intended to be used all day without fatigue. Thus avoid the time consuming task of switching of transducers to complete the full OB examination. With its exceptional image quality in 2D, 3D/4D, Color and MFI and outstanding ergonomics, the V9-2 provides a one transducer solution for 2D and 3D users are demanding.
