The Philips iU22 xMATRIX ultrasound system is premium performance ultrasound like you’ve never seen before. Unique xMATRIX technology on the X6-1 PureWave transducer delivers crisp, high-resolution images of even technically challenging patients.
Exceptional 2D and 3D image quality from a single transducer The new X6-1 PureWave xMATRIX transducer delivers outstanding 2D images, and then, with the touch of a button, converts to 3D to provide a more complete picture of anatomy without workflow disruption. The X6-1 gives you the power to capture a volume in just one second that equals the quality of your 2D images. The ultra-thin, targeted beam provides extraordinary tissue uniformity while decreasing noise surrounding the region of interest, resulting in fewer artifacts when compared to conventional beams.
Real-time, simultaneous imaging in two planes The X6-1 PureWave xMATRIX transducer features xPlane, which allows imaging in two planes simultaneously, without manually rotating the transducer. Because you no longer have to rotate the transducer to see the second plane, you don’t risk losing a tiny object during manual rotation. Clinical trials have show that xPlane speeds workflow, improves imaging precision, and has the potential to minimize repetitive stress injuries.
Volume viewing on any PACS Now you can send 3D MPRs to any PACS system, making volume images available wherever they are needed for decision-making, review and storage. Once the volume data is acquired, the iU22 will capture the X, Y, and Z MPR cineloops at the push of a button and then send them to your PACS.
Gain a better perspective of needle location during biopsies and ablations The iU22 xMATRIX provides integrated image fusion and instrument navigation capabilities with PercuNav. The PercuNav system acts like a GPS for medical instruments when guiding soft tissue biopsy and ablation procedures. The combined iU22/PercuNav solution transforms two dimensional patient images into dynamic, fused imaging maps that combine CT or MR imaging with live ultrasound.
Improved detection of breast abnormalities with elastography The iU22 xMATRIX’s strain-based breast elastography feature provides a highly sensitive exam tool for detecting breast anomalies. The Advanced Breast Tissue Specific Imaging (TSI) preset on the L12-5 50 mm and L17-5 transducers, helps users distinguish between cystic and solid masses in the breast.
Tissue aberration correction on breast transducers compensates for speed of sound variations, improving detail resolution and conspicuity of breast lesions. With the push of a button you can achieve optimum diagnostic performance across the spectrum of breast architecture types.
SmartExam tools deliver efficiency SmartExam guided workflow on the iU22 xMATRIX increases consistency and speed by automatically planning and processing application protocols. With SmartExam Shuffle you can send images to PACS in the order they were assigned.
Reduce failed ultrasound exams by as much as 69% with the C5-1 transducer A study on technically difficult patients at six sites in North America and Europe using the C5-1 PureWave transducer has shown that this technology can positively impact your ultrasound lab. Exam times have been reduced up to 38% and studies have shown a reduction in pain and fatigue from scanning in 29% to 85% of exams.

Innovations and Technology
xMATRIX revolutionary ultra thin slice imaging delivers extraordinary tissue uniformity for improved textural pattern recognition, superb discrimination of small structures in the near, mid and far, and exceptional image quality so you can see anatomical details not seen with conventional ultrasound.
Philips strain-based breast elastography technology is highly sensitive—obtained merely by patient breathing or cardiac motion. Elastography, on the iU22 xMATRIX with L12-5 transducer and Advanced Breast Tissue Specific Imaging (TSI) preset, enables you to differentiate relative stiffness of tissue through sonographic examination.
SonoCT imaging technology uses transmit beam-steering techniques to obtain coplanar, tomographic images from different viewing angles, then combines these micro-angulated images into a single compounded image at real-time frame rates.
Tissue aberration correction technology corrects for speed of sound changes through adipose tissue, sharpens spatial resolution, reduces the effects of acoustic beam distortion, and improves tissue uniformity throughout the depth of view.
