On its introduction in 2008, the Philips CX50 ultrasound machine established itself as the Gold Standard of portable cardiac ultrasound machines, and it still leads the pack.
This premium portable machine is known best for its cardiac imaging, but the refurbished Philips CX50 also excels as a fully shared service system, which makes it ideal in larger practices, hospitals, emergency departments, or other point of care situations.
Its cardiac abilities are considered by most as best-in-class, providing excellent wall definition with minimal artifact, and very good image quality on difficult-to-image patients/deep penetration.
Philips CX50 Imaging Features
One of the more important technologies featured in the CX50 ultrasound is the PureWave crystal technology. These single crystal transducers provide improved image quality throughout the ultrasound image.
In addition to PureWave single-crystal probes, the CX50 includes all the top imaging technologies found on advanced portable ultrasounds, such as Compound imaging (SonoCT), Speckle Reduction (XRES), Needle Visualization, IMT, and Tissue Harmonics.
The most advanced features of the Philips CX50 are focused mainly on cardiac imaging. These technologies include:
- Strain Quantification
- MicroVascular Imaging
- 3D quantification
- Cardiac motion quantification with speckle tracking technology
- Smart Exam automated protocols
- Live3D (4D) TEE
- Mitral Valve Quantification
- ICE Intracardiac Echo
Providian Medical Expert Review:
The refurbished Philips CX50 is considered one of the best-imaging portable cardiac ultrasound machines for sale. Loyal Philips customers will call this the best portable cardiac machine, while users of other systems… well… it’s likely they’ll also agree that this is the best cardiac portable machine.
We like it for its ease-of-use and image quality. Its portability allows it to be an excellent system for needle-guidance procedures in MSK, vascular access, pain management, and surgical situations. However, its best features remain cardiovascular imaging, but it is very powerful and very good as a shared service ultrasound machine.

Step 1: System Overview
In Providian Medical’s free 9-part Philips CX50 training series, you’ll learn everything you need to know about using the CX50 advanced cardiovascular portable ultrasound machine.
This first video gives a complete overview of how to best use and interact with the ultrasound machine.
It is very important to watch this video. Subsequent videos build on the items presented here and they may be confusing without this base knowledge.
The Philips CX50 is an in-depth and complex ultrasound machine. In order to get the most out of it, we recommend viewing the videos in order, particularly the early videos that give a foundation of knowledge for understanding this powerful cardiovascular ultrasound machine.
Step 2: Imaging/Needle Visualization
In part 2, I address how to begin an exam, perform and optimize 2D Imaging, and also use Needle Visualization.
Step 3: Measurements/Annotations
In Part 3 of Providian Medical’s Philips CX50 training series, learn how to navigate and customize the various measurement, analysis and annotations packages.
Step 4: Saving Images/Loops
There are many ways of saving loops on the CX50, as well as many settings on how it saves and handles your images.
You can become more efficient and streamline your workflow by customizing how your ultrasound machine saves loops. This is particularly important in cardiology settings. Learn how to set the CX50 to your own preferences in Part 4 of our free ultrasound training series.
Step 5: Doppler Modes
Part 5 of our series teaches how to activate, use and optimize PW, CW, and Color Doppler imaging modes.
Step 6: Review/Reports
There are multiple ways to review images from current and past exams on the Philips CX50. This free training video shows the various techniques for viewing images and comparing images from a current or past exam. It also covers viewing reports.
Step 7: Setup/Customization
The Philips CX50 has extensive customization and setup parameters, some of which are quite complicated, others not. This video teaches how to save custom presets and get your system optimized for your workflow and preferences.
Step 8: DICOM/Connectivity
DICOM and Connectivity are both complicated and, semi-complicated on this system. Its versatility, power and diagnostic tools are the best among ultrasound systems, providing tools to tell you what may have gone wrong, and these tools are simply not available on other portable ultrasound machines. It also has excellent explanations about the various parameters that can be adjusted to make your workflow efficient.
It’s important to view this entire video, as just connecting to your DICOM server is only a portion of what needs to be done to properly setup DICOM. Specifically, setting your image and video compression can make a large difference in transferring your studies.
Step 9: Exporting
Learn how to export to USB and DICOM. While this can be a relatively simple process, it’s important to understand its tools in making your exports faster and getting the correct type of image format and compression to make your workflow more efficient.
