The refurbished Philips Affiniti 70 is the successor to Philips’ popular HD15 shared service color Doppler ultrasound machine.

The used Affinity 70 ultrasound machine is designed as a “budget” shared service ultrasound. Its architecture is based on its premium EPIQ series of ultrasound machines, offering some of its best technology to those with tighter budgets. This architecture and easy-to-use interface allow the Affiniti 70 to handle high volume while providing solid image quality.

The Affiniti 70 differs slightly from the Affiniti 50, as it has a few other technologies, such as Shear Wave Elastography as well as Strain elastography, and it runs a few different probes.

With a 21.5″ articulating fold-down LCD screen and touchscreen tablet-like user interface, the Affiniti 70 has a simplified user interface for “walk-up” usability, helping make it ideal for busy offices with multiple users.

As a complete shared service ultrasound, it has 4D obstetric imaging, ShearWave elastography, and provides both adult and pediatric echocardiography (including TEE) and stress echo.

Providian Medical’s Philips Affiniti 70 Ultrasound Review

The Affinity 70 replaces the popular Philips HD15 ultrasound machine as a budget mid-range ultrasound machine. It has great image quality and is an excellent choice for those who don’t need a truly premium ultrasound in their department. 

The Affiniti is smaller and weighs less than the premium ultrasound machines and has a much lower price than the Philips EPIQ series of ultrasounds.
