Clinical Perspectives on iU22 xMATRIX system
The role of the radiologist is rapidly changing. Clinical complexity is increasing, new
applications for imaging are emerging, and pressure is mounting to streamline workflow
and read examinations in a timely manner.1 When 3,000 radiologists were asked how best
to facilitate these advances, however, a need was identified for greater collaboration, better
decision-making tools, seamless integration, and closer relationships with partners outside
the hospital environment. In response to these concerns, Philips Healthcare released ‘Imaging
2.0’ in 2010.
Imaging 2.0 was the umbrella term used to describe a range of products that were
designed for any clinician involved in medical imaging – for example, radiologists, nuclear
medicine physicians, and sonographers. The Imaging 2.0 concept offered a new approach to
clinical collaboration, integration, patient focus, economic value, and safety; in short, Imaging
2.0 was developed to simplify everyday working for the medical imaging clinician. Now, the
iU22 xMATRIX ultrasound system, coupled with the unique X6-1 xMATRIX transducer,
extends the capability of Imaging 2.0 through its novel visualization tools and enhanced
