Musculoskeletal Ultrasound

A universal platform for musculoskeletal ultrasound 

Musculoskeletal (MSK) disorders are the leading contributor to disability worldwide, and are projected to continue to increase, due in part to an aging population [1]. In addition, worldwide obesity has nearly tripled since 1975 and obesity is linked to a range of MSK conditions [2]. Widely available and cost-effective, ultrasound can provide images of soft tissues that do not show up well on X-ray images. It also can be used to guide procedures such as needle biopsies and fluid aspiration and to image joints in motion.  

Demonstrated results in Musculoskeletal Ultrasound


improved penetration with the mL26-8 transducer

The mL26-8 transducer offers 36% improved spatial resolution and 64% improved penetration in superficial applications [4].  


the sensitivity and resolution of MFI

MicroFlow Imaging (MFI HD) offers 2x the sensitivity and resolution of MFI in assessing blood flow [5].  


reduction in number of button pushes 

NextGe AutoSCAN reduces button pushes by up to 54% with pixel-by-pixel real time optimization [6].

Epiq elite

EPIQ Elite

Philips EPIQ Elite ultrasound features an exceptional level of clinical performance, workflow, and advanced intelligence to meet the challenges of today’s most demanding practices. The EPIQ Elite Platform brings ultimate solutions to ultrasound, with clinically tailored tools designed to elevate diagnostic confidence to new levels. EPIQ shares the same workflow, interface and transducers as the Affiniti and Compact systems.

Affiniti ultrasound


Affiniti’s broad range of transducers offer PureWave crystal technology and excellent superficial resolution and penetration and combine with the system’s precision beamforming to deliver high image quality for pediatric imaging. Designed for walk-up usability, Affiniti is so intuitive that it requires minimal training on system use to be able to complete an exam [5], and uses the same workflow, interface and transducers as the EPIQ and Compact systems. Light and with a small footprint and fold-down monitor, it easily navigates narrow hallways and tight spaces.

Compact 5000 series

Compact 5000 Series

Designed for mobility and performance, the Compact 5000 series shares the same workflow, interface and transducers as the EPIQ and Affiniti systems. With a quick boot-up and long battery life, the system is ready to go whenever you need it, so you can bring pediatric ultrasound to wherever you need it.

Lumify system


Use ultra-mobile Lumify handheld ultrasound to detect soft tissue injuries in any care setting, with high-definition imaging. SonoCT reinforces real tissue imaging while eliminating random artifacts. The entire unit fits into a small bag for easy transportation, so you can take ultrasound on the go.
