The gold standard for security || KBA1
The gold standard for security
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 for technically difficult patients
The exceptional performance of PureWave results in improved diagnostic confidence, especially on technically difficult patients. PureWave transducer technology is now available on three Sparq transducers, C5-1, S5-1 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 and features a large 17-inch monitor on an articulating arm. This makes it easy to position even in the most challenging clinical environments. 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 and gridline for out of plane procedures
To make it easy to conduct out-of-plane procedures, Philips L12-4 and C6-2 transducers have a centerline mark that corresponds to a centerline on the image. The system also features an on-screen gridline display that provides a visual target and distance estimation. Depth markers provide rapid information about image depth, with no need to perform a specific measurement.
Intuitive Dynamic Interface || Ease of Use
Simplicity Mode simplifies your controls on the system
To make scanning easy, Sparq is designed with a dynamic interface that eliminates knobs or buttons. 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.
