Philips EPIQ 5

Philips EPIQ 5

The Philips EPIQ 5 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.

The Philips Epiq 5 is a premium shared service ultrasound machine from Philips. It offers Purewave single crystal probes, a compact and lightweight design and superior ergonomics and workflow. The Epiq 5 replaces the older Philips iU22 without xMatrix. The Epiq 5 has less probe options and features than the more expensive Epiq 7. All the Epiq and Affiniti ultrasound machines look visually very similar and use the same monitor and huge tablet like touchscreen for navigation.
