Philips has released the ClearVue 650, a small footprint ultrasound for general purpose applications that also includes some advanced technologies specifically for Ob/Gyn.
It provides all the standard 2D and 3D/4D/Doppler capabilities, but also includes Auto Face Reveal and Fetal STIC (Spatio-Temporal Imaging Correlation) for doing cool 3D reconstructions as seen in the image.
Features from the product page:
Active Array advanced miniaturization technology reduces bulky circuitry and integrates key broadband beamforming capabilities into the transducer for superb image quality in a lightweight system. The reduced complexity of the system means increased modularity, serviceability, and reliability.
Broadband beamforming uses the full range of ultrasound frequencies to capture the entire tissue signature information, preserving the quantity and quality of data through capture and preservation of the entire bandwidth of ultrasound signals.
SonoCT imaging technology uses transmit beam-steering techniques to obtain coplanar, tomographic images from different viewing angles, then combines these micro-angulated images into a single compounded image at real-time frame rates.
XRES adaptive image processing reduces artifacts and improves margin and border definition.
The ClearVue 650 features 3D/4D capabilities that are designed to be easy to use and easy to learn. Powered by Philips proprietary Active Array technology, 3D volume renditions and dynamic 4D displays are presented with incredible clarity and detail resolution. Volume capabilities include Auto Face Reveal, which captures a clear 3D view of the fetal face and trimester-optimized STIC to evaluate fetal heart anatomy.
