By staff writers

January 26, 2009 -- Philips Healthcare has introduced HD9, an ultrasound system targeted at women's health applications.

HD9 includes 3D and 4D capabilities and is suitable for obstetrics, gynecology, and breast imaging, according to the Andover, MA-based vendor. It can also handle general imaging, adult and pediatric cardiology, general pediatric imaging, and urology, Philips said.

Other HD9 features include Philips Live iSlice tool, which allows clinicians to focus on specific areas of interest within a volume and find images with the best views and content, Philips said. The vendor has also incorporated its spatiotemporal image correlation (STIC) tool, tissue specific imaging technology, and tissue aberration correction.

Philips introduced HD9 at the Arab Health 2009 conference in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and will release the system in March.
