Philips Medical Systems this week introduced the HD11 High Definition ultrasound system, the company's third major ultrasound system to be launched in less than 12 months.
The HD11 is designed for ultrasound departments that serve a diverse patient population and have a restricted budget, Philips said. The system that offers high-end features such as real-time SonoCT compound imaging with XRES technology; broadband beamforming; 3D, 4D and STIC imaging; stress echo; panoramic and contrast imaging; and full networking capabilities.  
High-definition imaging provides enhanced edges and margins for more sharply defined structures, reduced noise and speckle, and better visibility and contrast resolution for very small structures.
In addition, the system features the choice of more than 20 transducers for a wide variety of scanning needs.
The HD11 system is equipped with Philips iSCAN Intelligent Optimization technology to replace numerous fine-tuning steps on the control panel, Philips said. Using one-button, the system automatically samples digital data and adjusts multiple parameters to improve the image quality and help provide image consistency between exams.
