Philips EPIQ 5

Philips EPIQ 5 Ultrasound

A New Era in Premium Ultrasound

EPIQ 5 is the new direction for premium ultrasound, featuring an uncompromised level of clinical performance to meet the challenges of today’s most demanding practices and technically difficult-to-image patients through every gestational age and for gynecology applications.

Below is a generalized description of this systems technology, specifications, features, and options. The below may not reflect the features and options available on units in our inventory.


Advanced workflow for superb ergonomics, amazing mobility
EPIQ 5 has completely reinvented the premium ultrasound user experience. Ease of use, workflow, ergonomics, and mobility. We’ve revolutionized how you interact with an ultrasound system from every standpoint, and kept it beautifully intuitive and very quiet.
PureWave Imaging for technically difficult patientsPhilips exclusive PureWave crystal technology is clinically proven to improve penetration in difficult-to-image patients. The pure, uniform PureWave crystals are up to 85% more efficient than conventional materials, resulting in exceptional performance. This technology allows for improved penetration and excellent detailed resolution.
Fast and effective image fusion and needle navigationMake confident decisions even in challenging diagnostic cases with new fully integrated fusion capabilities that feature streamlined workflow to allow clinicians to achieve fast and effective fusion of CT/MR/PET with live ultrasound. By combining imaging modalities directly on the ultrasound system, you now have access to an even more powerful diagnostic tool with advanced visualization allowing for fast clinical decisions.
MicroCPA for exceptional small vessel visualizationObtaining flow information in small low-flow vascular structures has traditionally been a challenge. With EPIQ’s new MicroCPA feature, visualization of low velocity micro circulation is quick and simple, giving you more diagnostic confidence when evaluating organ perfusion or small vascular beds.
TrueVue advanced 3D displayPhilips TrueVue advanced 3D ultrasound display delivers amazing lifelike 3D images. TrueVue, with its internal light source gives clinicians the ability to manipulate light and shadow anywhere in the 3D volume.
Amazing mobility helps you do studies everywhereThe EPIQ is the lightest in its class; it’s easily transported on both carpet and tile. Place it in sleep mode, move it and boot up in seconds. The monitor folds down to reduce overall system height for transport, and the integrated cable hooks and catch tray are ideal for mobile studies.
MaxVue high definition displayAt the touch of a button, MaxVue high-definition display brings extraordinary visualization of anatomy with 1,179,648 additional image pixels compared to a standard4:3 display format mode. MaxVue enhances ultrasound viewing and provides 38% more viewing area to optimize the display of dual, side/side, biplane, and scrolling imaging modes.
Anatomical Intelligence for BreastPhilips AI Breast is an integrated solution for whole breast ultrasound. AI Breast offers screening, diagnostic, and workflow benefits utilizing Philips unique Anatomical Intelligence. Designed with both the user and patient in mind, AI Breast allows the ultrasound scan room to be utilized for a full range of examinations without additional obtrusive hardware.
nSIGHT Imaging is a totally different approach to ultrasoundPhilips proprietary nSIGHT Imaging architecture is a totally different approach to forming ultrasound images. Unlike conventional systems that form the image line by line, nSIGHT creates images with optimal resolution down to the pixel level. nSIGHT Imaging incorporates the use of a precision beamformer along with powerful massive parallel processing. This extraordinary architecture captures an enormous amount of acoustic data and then reconstructs in real time optimally focused beams, creating precise resolution for every pixel in the image
Shear wave elastography simplifies liver disease assessmentSimplify liver assessment with non-invasive tools. Obtaining liver stiffness measurements with Philips shear wave elastography is surprisingly fast and easy even on difficult-to-image patients. It is non-invasive, making it a quick, simple step for sonographers and virtually painless for patients.
