The Philips XL14-3 xMATRIX transducer is the world’s first xMATRIX linear array that offers multi-dimensional focusing to provide ultra-thin slice imaging capabilities. The xMATRIX produces extraordinary 3D images, allowing clinicians to easily see into the vessel and assess vascular disease, or for cardiovascular application. The xMATRIX transducer includes live ‘xPlane’ imaging, a proprietary feature to Philips technology. Live ‘xPlane’ imaging capabilities on the transducer allows clinicians to see two full-resolution planes simultaneously, which eliminates the need to rotate the transducer. This improves the accuracy of data collection and can reduce exam time. By bringing 3D and 4D visualization to vascular and cardiovascular ultrasound, this transducer can help facilitate confident diagnosis decisions, and enhances patient consultation.
