Product Highlights

Type: Cardiac Vascular General Imaging

The Philips iE33 was the long-standing king of the cardiovascular ultrasound market. Today it serves as one of the best values in console cardiovascular ultrasound machines. With single-crystal probe technology and 4D TEE availability, it’s hard to argue with the value of the iE33 for cardiac ultrasound imaging.

In fact, its image quality and user-interaction are considered by many as the best on the market for a premium cardiac ultrasound, addressing heart failure and other cardiovascular needs in fast-paced clinical environments.

Those looking for something newer than the iE33 should turn to its replacement, the refurbished Philips Epiq 7.

In-depth imaging with the Philips iE33

From its Live 3D (4D) ultrasound imaging capabilities to its PureWave xMATRIX technology (featured on later models with the xMATRIX Edition), the Philips iE33 remains a leader in cardiovascular imaging technology. When combined with the right cardiac ultrasound transducer, you can view images in two planes in real time as well as 4D.

Other imaging technologies found in the Philips iE33 include:

  • PureWave technology that provides detailed resolution with one transducer
  • Color Doppler
  • M-Mode imaging
  • Quantitative stress echo

Philips iE33 ease and efficiency

The Philips iE33 ultrasound is also designed to optimize ergonomics and increase efficiency, allowing you to see more patients throughout the day with less strain.

Additionally, by removing the barrier to 3D imaging, the Philips iE33 ultrasound allows 2D, 3D, or a combination, without interrupting your workflow. With iScan image optimization technology, you can automatically adjust multiple parameters at the touch of a button, and DICOM imaging management enables seamless data sharing.

Providian Medical Expert Review:

The Philips ie33 is preferred by many sonographers for a few key reasons: Speed, Image quality, ease-of-use. The ie33 and the Vivid e9 compete for the top-spot as the best cardiovascular ultrasound on the market. As far as image quality, many consider it to be uncontested for the top spot. We find that some sonographers are die-hard Philips users and prefer a refurbished ie33 for sale, while others prefer the features of the GE Vivid e9. It can be a tough decision, which typically comes down to a personal preference or budgetary decision. Regardless, you can’t go wrong with a used Philips ie33 ultrasound machine.

Q:What is SonoCT on the Philips ie33?

A: SonoCT on the Philips ie33 is also known as compound imaging (CrossXBeam, iBeam, etc). It allows the ultrasound transducer to see from multiple lines of site at different angles, as opposed to the standard line-of-site that's perpendicular to the transducer lens.

Q:What is XRES?

A: XRES on the Philips ie33 ultrasound machine uses a software algorithm to increase image resolution by reducing “speckle” (artifact) while brightening tissue in the image. The result provides a clearer image with higher contrast between hyper- and hypo-echoic regions.

Q:What is xMATRIX technology?

A: xMATRIX technology is available on refurbished ie33 ultrasound systems with xMATRIX technology enabled. The xMatrix allows for 2D and 3D realtime imaging... the X5-1 xMATRIX transducer on the Philips ie33 has 2600-3000 elements.

Q:What is iScan?

A: iScan on the Philips ie33 is a one-touch optimization in which the system evaluates the ultrasound image and optimizes Gain automagically.

Q:What is Live3D?

A: Live 3D is also known as 4D in most circles (a GE term). It allows real-time 3D imaging in cardiac imaging on the ie33 with the X5-1 and other xMATRIX transducers.

Q:What is Live xPlane Imaging?

A: Live xPlane imaging on the ie33 allows for a simultaneous display of two live imaging planes.

Q:What is PureWave technology?

A: Philips PureWave is a transducer technology in which the crystals (elements) of the transducer are arranged uniformly, which is not the case with standard transducer technology. Philips states that PureWave technology provides more consistent image results.
