SonoCT Real-time Compound Imaging
Acquires and processes up to 9 lines of sight to display exceptionally clear images, free of clutter and artifact.
Margins are clearer, borders are well defined, and more data is available for the diagnosis.
Supported on linear, curved and tightly-curved array transducers with no reduction in frame rate
XRES Extreme Resolution Technology
Adaptive image processing, brought from Philips MR research.
Performing real-time analysis and refinement of image patterns at the pixel level.
The HD11 system processes 350 million XRES calculations per frame, in real time.
Virtually eliminates speckle noise artifact and dynamically enhances tissue textures, margins and borders.
Supported on all imaging transducers and clinical applications.
Operates in multiple modes.
Imaging and data tools
The following advanced modes and technologies are standard on every HD11 system:
2D with Pulse Inversion Harmonic Imaging, Philip s patented method for producing pure, broadband harmonic signals for superb grayscale presentation.
3D imaging with multiplanar views, for qualitative freehand 3D images and interactive visualization through three planes.
Adaptive Color Doppler, which automatically selects the optimal Doppler or angio frequency for highly sensitive resolution, as well as Color Power Angio technology for assessing amplitude and direction of flow.
Pulsed wave and continuous wave Doppler with Adaptive Doppler technology to boost weak signals and reduce noise, and high PRF capability for measuring higher velocities than ordinary pulsed Doppler ultrasound.
Tissue Doppler Imaging (TDI), including Color TDI to assess direction and timing of myocardial function, and pulsed wave TDI for velocity mapping of vessel wall motion and cardiac tissue.
Integrated multi-session CD and optional peripheral devices allow you to customize your HD11 system to your documentation and archiving needs.
Document your findings in professional patient reports, complete with images, produced from the system for a comprehensive file that s easy to file and share.
Perform measurements and take advantage of the analysis packages you ve chosen to meet your clinical needs.
Quickly access stored images and loops through thumbnail review and edit them with ease.
Broadband digital transducers and beamformer capture and preserve the entire bandwidth of ultrasound signals to retain the quantity and quality of vital tissue signatures.
With advanced beam steering in SonoCT modes, the HD11 acquires up to nine times more broadband tissue information.
Wide dynamic range expands the scope of signals upon which image and flow data are based, from the strongest to the weakest, for increased signal sensitivity and differentiation in all modes.
The system precisely steers and focuses ultrasound signals containing broad frequency bandwidths to improve axial resolution.
Supercomputer signal processing
With its high-speed architecture, the HD11 achieves superb computing power for excellent spatial and temporal resolution.
Patented Fusion Signal Processing uses parallel signal processing to divide returning broadband signals into sub-bands and analyze each individual component. These frequencies are then compounded and optimized by patient criteria and the user s need for resolution or penetration.
The HD11 system s software-based image forming supports faster control panel selections, expanded automation capabilities such as iSCAN, and complex image processing algorithms requiring millions of calculations per second, for true High Definition imaging and color Doppler performance.
