Philips has announced that its CX50 xMATRIX portable ultrasound is now available with 2-D intracardiac echo (ICE) capability.
The system already featured 3D transesophageal echo (TEE) and the new capability is thanks to the integration of St. Jude Medical’s ViewFlex Xtra intracardiac echocardiography catheter with the CX50 xMATRIX.
The ViewFlex Xtra ICE catheter is a new, 2-D catheter featuring four-way steering and the unique benefit of single-handed control.
The CX50 xMATRIX is an all-in-one imaging solution for cardiac catheterization labs, EP labs and hybrid operating rooms. With both ICE and Live 3D TEE available on a single system, hospitals will not need to rely on scheduling two separate ultrasound systems for various procedures. The CX50 xMATRIX also offers interventional workflow features such as Philips Allura tableside control, automatic patient data exchange, and support for Philips’ EchoNavigator – which intelligently combines fluoroscopy and echocardiography.
