PRNewswire/ -- Royal Philips announced a new ultrasound system designed to enable global hospitals and health systems to overcome the demands of increasing patient volumes and cost pressures. Making its debut at the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Congress 2014 in Barcelona this week, Affiniti provides innovative technology to help radiology/ultrasound departments facing more patients with fewer resources deliver high quality patient care.
Affiniti meets the needs of physicians who are challenged with treating large volumes of patients on any given day. Philips collaborated with hundreds of physicians around the world, who provided feedback to help inform Affiniti's ergonomic design, which led to an intuitive, easy-to-use system. Philips put the system through 4,500 hours of reliability testing with the demands of a busy medical practice and heavy workload in mind.
"With our high patient volume, cost pressures and throughput demands, my department/clinic/facility needs a system that offers high performance, a range of configuration options and low total cost of ownership while still offering superior image quality," said Dr.Martin Penicka, Cardiologist at the Cardiovascular Center Aalst, OLV Clinic, Aalst,Belgium."Philips Affiniti enables us to get to the level of detail we need to best serve our patients and enable our clinicians to keep up with increasing demand."
