Philips is showcasing the 5500CV system at the 2023 American Society of Echocardiography meeting. The Compact Ultrasound 5000 Series system recently received CE mark, and will be a strong focus at the European Society of Cardiology congress in Amsterdam, the vendor said.

This next iteration of compact ultrasound brings the same diagnostic echocardiography imaging quality found in cart-based systems to the bedside, Philips said, and it is designed to fit the needs of specialties including general imaging, cardiology, obstetrics and gynecology, and point of care.

The system's user interface and workflow are compatible with the Philips cart-based ultrasound systems EPIQ CVx and Affiniti CVx, which are already widely used in cardiology departments worldwide. The 5500CV is also compatible with ultrasound system transducers for EPIQ CVx and Affiniti CVx.

In addition, the system features an optional battery add-on that allows up to 2.5 hours of scanning time, AI-based automation tools, and support for the company's real-time telemedicine software, Philips Ultrasound Collaboration Live.

Philips is sponsoring a satellite symposium at American Society of Echocardiography in Maryland on Sunday 25 June, that will focus on advanced features of the 5500CV and include insights from Dr. David Liang, who will discuss his work with the system. ASE attendees can join the satellite symposium in the Science and Technology Theater #1 or learn more about Compact 5500CV in the Philips Booth (#103).
