Unique xMATRIX technology on the X6-1 PureWave transducer harnesses the power of over 9000 active elements, more than 35 times greater than today’s conventional transducers, to capture crisp, high-resolution images of even technically challenging patients.
The iU22 xMATRIX makes it easy to add 3D imaging to any exam by removing the barriers to volume imaging. And a host of workflow enhancers facilitate faster exams, enabling image optimization with just the touch of a button.
Obtain 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.
