The ultimate ultrasound solution for liver assessment

It’s no secret that liver disease is a growing global health concern. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, liver disease is the 12th leading cause of death in the US. In fact, many people have hepatitis C and may not even know it.


For decades, liver biopsy has been the conventional method for disease assessment, but the pain, expense and wait-time associated with results have proven to be barriers for some patients. Thanks to Philips innovations on the EPIQ liver ultrasound elastography system, there is now a comprehensive all-in-one solution to help clinicians assess, treat and monitor many liver conditions.

Ultrasound solutions for liver assessment

ElastQ 2D-SWE liver ultrasound elastography

Ultrasound shear wave elastography provides a noninvasive, reproducible, and easily performed method of assessing tissue stiffness. Research suggests that instead of a costly and painful biopsy procedure, an easy ultrasound exam including shear wave elastography could become routine for assessing liver disease status. ElastQ Imaging high-performance shear wave liver ultrasound elastography features real-time, large Region of Interest (ROI) color-coded quantitative assessment of tissue stiffness. ElastQ Imaging also includes the ability to make retrospective measurements on stored images and a unique confidence map display uses intelligent analysis to add additional assurance that user measurements are obtained on tissue areas with adequate shear wave propagation.

ElastPQ p-SWE ultrasound elastography

ElastPQ is an easy-to-use method of obtaining tissue stiffness values of the liver on a predefined ROI. Using real-time imaging as a guide, the ROI is placed over the area of interest and tissue stiffness data such as AVG, MEAN, and IQR are obtained and displayed in seconds. Multiple samples can be recorded and liver tissue report generated from the results

PureWave Imaging

PureWave crystal technology represents the biggest breakthrough in piezoelectric transducer material in 40 years. The pure, uniform crystals of PureWave are 85% more efficient than conventional piezoelectric material, resulting in exceptional performance. This technology is integral in our C5-1, C9-2, mC12-3 and X6-1 transducers allowing for improved penetration in difficult to scan patients while maintaining excellent detail resolution, Doppler sensitivity and CEUS performance.

Contrast enhanced liver ultrasound

Ultrasound contrast agents can transform the role of ultrasound in the liver, allowing the user to study the enhancement patterns of suspicious liver lesions in real time, providing access to faster and more confident diagnoses. 


With Philips EPIQ, Contrast Enhanced Ultrasound (CEUS) is seamlessly integrated into the standard workflow, providing exceptional detail throughout arterial, portal, and late-phase scanning. Additionally, with advanced technologies at your fingertips – such as MaxVue full high-definition display mode, PureWave transducers, fusion imaging, and Q-App quantification – EPIQ delivers maximum confidence for lesion detection and characterization, even in the most challenging exams.

Image fusion and navigation

Image fusion combines the inherent advantages of multimodality imaging directly on the ultrasound system using electromagnetic tracking. 


By combining CT/MR/PET with the live ultrasound and real-time position of the patient, the clinician has access to a powerful diagnostic tool which limits radiation due to the need for less conformity scans and maximizing throughput in the department.  


EPIQ’s exclusive Anatomical Intelligence Ultrasound (AIUS) comes to image fusion with automated registration of CT/MR and ultrasound volumes– in 1/10 the standard alignment time. Needle Navigation is a performance-enhancing tool for challenging interventional cases in the liver, and has been shown to improve workflow and reduce radiation exposure by using fewer confirmatory scans.


The EPIQ features a full suite of tools which includes the CIVCO eTrax™,  Adaptive Needle Tracker, and  Co-axial Needle Trackers. 


With such a wide range of compatibility to biopsy and ablation devices, the clinician has freedom to choose the best tools for the procedure depending on the level of complexity.
