Philips adds to HD ultrasound product line
Royal Philips Electronics showcased the latest addition to its HD ultrasound family of products at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) meeting in Vienna, Austria.

The system provides grayscale and color Doppler imaging with one-button optimization, as well as Tissue Harmonic Imaging. The HD7 has a broadband digital beamformer to capture and preserve more tissue information than conventional narrowband systems and its wide dynamic range and digital focal tuning provide exceptional sensitivity and detail resolution, Philips said.

The HD family of performance systems now includes the small, utilitarian HD3, the new HD7 and the popular, feature-rich HD11. The HD7 is not currently available for sale in the United States, according to the company.
