Philips has launched a new ultrasound system at Arab Health 2009 that focuses on a full range of women’s health needs to deliver high quality care. The HD9 system is a easy to use system that incorporates advanced imaging technology, including 3D and 4D capabilities. The system can be reliable for obstetrics, gynecology and breast imaging. Apart from women’s health it is also applicable for general imaging, adult and pediatric cardiology, general pediatric and urology. "Whether they are evaluating the fetal heart in real time or analyzing fetal biometry to assess growth and well-being, it’s essential for the clinician to be able to view high quality, clear ultrasound images," said Anne LeGrand, senior vice president, Ultrasound, for Philips Healthcare. "With the HD9 we’ve designed a system that is particularly suited to the needs of the Obstetrics & Gynecology practice while also meeting the day-to-day needs of a busy ultrasound laboratory". The HD9 is part of Philips’ extensive HD family of cost-effective ultrasound systems. The other systems in this series include the HD3, the HD7, the popular HD11 XE, and the HD15, which were introduced in 2008. Philips HD systems can be configured for a full range of applications. The system enters the market in March 2009.
