Philips Affiniti 70 Ultrasound system
Philips Affiniti 70 Ultrasound system. The Philips Affiniti 70, is a high-end shared service ultrasound machine that was developed in 2014 from the top Epiq 7.
Philips Affiniti 70 ultrasound system for women’s healthcare
Philips Affiniti 70 Ultrasound system delivers a powerful mix of performance and workflow for diagnosis. Engineered for efficiency and dependability and powered by Philips demonstrated performance, it gets users diagnostic pictures, quickly on the most technically difficult patients. Its layout and walk-up usability provide efficient maintenance every day.
The Philips Affiniti 70 is a complete echocardiography alternative that addresses the needs of a busy office or department while incorporating those inventions that make Philips ultrasound the international pioneer in echocardiography.
Philips Affiniti 70 precision beamforming, PureWave technology, Tissue-Specific Presets (TSP), and efficiency and automation tools provide both functionality and workflow for confident throughput. Designed around your workflow, the Philips Affiniti 70 provides mobility, ergonomics, and usability.
Philips-Affiniti-70-Ultrasound-systemThe Affiniti 70 also has many of the same technology as the Epiq series, including the amazing QLAB onboard quantification set and ShareWave elastography. The Philips Affiniti 70 is exceptional in the high-end price category in offering ShearWave. As a service ultrasound device that is shared the 70 excels at cardiology in addition to women’s health, vascular and radiology programs. Philips is well known for its imaging superiority over other brands, but the Philips Affiniti 70 is also rich with excellent image quality at its price level. Doctors who like the Affiniti 70, but do not need the transducers or ShearWave Elastography should consider the less costly Affiniti 50.
The Philips Affiniti 70 combines outstanding performance and effective workflow and attributes innovative Philips technologies. The Precision Beamforming delivers outstanding tissue uniformity and contrast resolution, excellent spatial, few artifacts, and decreased image jumble. Tissue-Specific Presets (TSPs) mechanically adjust over 7500 parameters to optimize the transducer to your particular test type, making excellent picture quality with little if any demand for picture adjustment. The Affiniti 70 Machine can also be equipped with automation features, for example, AutoSCAN and automobile Doppler, which reduce repetitive tasks and make obtaining a picture. Exam efficiency is delivered by Philips SmartExam-guided workflow.

Affiniti 70 Transducers: 4D & Matrix
The Philips Affiniti 70 supports four advanced single crystal PureWave transducers; the [ 1 – 5 MHz ] C5-1 convex, the [ 2 – 9 MHz ] C9-2 convex meant for pediatric work, the [ 3 – 10 MHz ] C10-3v endovaginal, and the [ 1 – 5 MHz ] S5-1 cardiac sector probe. The Affiniti 70 also supports two transesophegeal or TEE probes, the [ 3 – 7 MHz ] S7-3t pediatric and the [ 2 – 7 MHz ] X7-2t adult. The X7-2t is an xMatrix transducer but on the Affiniti 70 it only functions in 2D mode. The Epiq line and the CX50 however can use the full xPlane and 4D functions of the X7-2t. The Philips Affiniti 70 also has the [ 5 – 10 MHz ] biplane endocavitary probe that allows scanning in 2 planes without moving the transducer. Another specialty transducer is the [ 7 – 15 MHz ] L15-7io intraoperative linear, also known as a “hockey stick” probe for it’s distinctive shape that allows it to fit into tight surgical applications or small parts scanning.
Popular Philips Affiniti 70 Probes
The C5-1 PureWave is the most popular convex probe for the Affiniti 70 because of its superb image quality and penetration. Likewise the C10-3v PureWave is the most popular endovaginal for the same reasons. The [ 3 – 12 MHz ] L12-3 is the most popular linear on the Affiniti 70 because it is affordable, and strong in both vascular and MSK imaging. For cardiac scanning the [ 1 – 5 MHz ]
S5-1 is the most commonly selected, again for the improved image quality at low MHz ranges that would normally lose clarity as the penetration increased.
