Providian Medical Expert Ultrasound Review

Philips isn’t known for really breaking stride with their designs and over-engineering a lot of products. Although they were late to the game in a true Point of Care bedside ultrasound (such as the SonoSite S-Series, GE Venue40, etc), the Sparq is a nice addition to category and helps round-out Philips ultrasound lineup. The Sparq incorporates a lot of the great features found in these ultrasound machines, but remains familiar to Philips users along with keeping its excellent image quality.
