Philips recognizes the importance of securing your ultrasound system and protecting your patient data. The security feature is a defense-in-depth strategy that comprises five layers: firewall, operating system hardening, malware protection, access controls and patient data encryption. Each of these layers plays an important role in helping you thwart hackers, defend against malware, and prevent unauthorized access.
PureWave transducer technology
PureWave transducer technology for technically difficult patients
The exceptional performance of PureWave results in improved diagnostic confidence, especially on technically difficult patients. PureWave transducer technology is available on two Sparq transducers the C5-1 and X7-2t.
Needle Visualization || Clinical Excellence
Needle Visualization for easy procedure guidance
Sparq features needle guidance technology that improves needle guidance. Needle Visualization enhances the presentation of the needle without degrading the image, facilitating quick needle guidance to the target anatomy.
Ergonomic design || Environmental fit
Ergonomic design for ease of use in challenging environments
Sparq is height-adjustable, has a small footprint and features a large 17-inch monitor on an articulating arm. This makes it easy to position even in the most challenging clinical environments. Easy clip, our innovative cable management solution, keeps cables tangle free. You can use the optional barcode scanner to obtain patient information from your hospital-generated barcode, accelerating efficiency and decreasing data entry errors.
Remote Reporting || KBA1
Sparq’s Remote Reporting* feature provides clinicians remote access to the Telexy Qpath™** data management system. This feature allows clinicians to interact with the ultrasound images and Qpath worksheets directly from Sparq. The ability to complete and approve ultrasound exam reports at the point-of-care uniquely enhances work flow in the emergency department.
Centerline and gridline || Clinical Excellence
Centerline mark to facilitate out-of-plane procedures
To facilitate needle guidance for out-of-plane procedures the L12-4 and C6-2 transducers have a centerline mark that corresponds to a centerline on the image.
Battery operation || Environmental fit
Battery operation saves critical time
The battery operation and 'instant on’ features facilitate a rapid assessment when time is crucial so that you can perform multiple exams without system shut down.
Automation features || Ease of Use
Automation features for easy scanning
To make scanning easy, Sparq is designed with a dynamic interface that removes complexities. To decrease interaction with system controls, AutoSCAN automatically identifies tissue type and continuously adjusts image gain while scanning.
Sealed control panel || Clinical Excellence
Sealed control panel enables easy cleaning
Sparq features a sealed, easy-to-clean, tempered glass control panel that enables easy cleaning.
Abundant clinical applications
Abundant clinical applications for critical care needs
With a broad set of transducers and features, Sparq supports an array of clinical applications and produces outstanding image quality on a variety of patients with a wide range of body habitus. Supported applications include: cardiac and TEE, lung, vascular access, abdomen, musculoskeletal, FAST, nerve, ocular, superficial, and pelvic imaging.
Multiport adapter for easily switching between transducers
This adapter allows up to three imaging transducers to be connected to the system at once, so you can easily switch transducers mid-exam.
Sparq offers Side-by-Side M-mode featuring a live reference image that makes it easy to interpret real-time lung imaging in the ICU.
Easy procedure guidance || Clinical Excellence
Easy procedure guidance
Sparq features Needle Visualization, a needle guidance technology that enhances the presentation of the needle without degrading the image. The L12-4 and C6-2 transducers have a centerline mark to make out-of-plane procedures easy.
SonoCT and XRES || Clinical Excellence
SonoCT and XRES improves image quality and reduces noise
Compounding multiple angles in real time, SonoCT delivers one image with high image quality. SonoCT significantly reduces many of the artifacts that are inherent in conventional ultrasound, and XRES creates images virtually free from noise, with stunning image quality and border definition.
