Cardio-Med, Ltd. announces its purchase of the Philips EPIQ 5G Ultrasound Imaging System. EPIQ 5 is a new direction for premium ultrasound featuring an uncompromised level of clinical performance. It features the most powerful architecture ever applied to ultrasound imaging—a totally new way to form ultrasound images.

This state-of-the-art system offers several benefits to patients:

  • Noise and artifact reduction to improve tissue penetration and image resolution.
  • An average 15% reduction in the time it takes to capture images.
  • 16-core central processing unit to handle an enormous amount of acoustic data in real time.

Cardio-Med uses this new system to offer the following diagnostic procedures on-site to its patients. These procedures are now enhanced through use of the new EPIQ 5G system:

  • Body scan (levels I, II, III) of abdominal organs such as the liver and pancreas.
  • Aortic scan for aneurysm, blockage, plaque.
  • Peripheral artery scan for leg cramps.
  • Carotid artery scan (“test for stroke risk”, “brain scan”) to check for blockage of the main arteries to the brain and assess stroke risk.

Ultrasound scanning is performed by trained technologists under the supervision of our physician. It does not use radiation of any kind, so patients have no need to worry about testing side effects.

With the EPIQ 5 system, ultrasound scanning and image analysis are typically completed in one patient visit, allowing for timely diagnosis by our physician and reporting back to the patient.

Such scanning provides early detection of potentially life-threatening diseases and cancers even before symptoms occur. This is especially important for individuals with risk factors or a family history of cancer, stroke, heart disease, aneurysm, etc.
