The Samsung UGEO HM70A is the first fully Samsung designed portable ultrasound machine and is the successor to the MySono U6. It is the only shared service portable ultrasound that offers both cardiac and 4D for OB/GYN and it does both very well. It is positioned at a midrange price point.
The Philips Epiq 5 is a premium shared service ultrasound machine from Philips. It offers Purewave single crystal probes, a compact and lightweight design and superior ergonomics and workflow. The Epiq 5 replaces the older Philips iU22 without xMatrix. The Epiq 5 has less probe options and features than the more expensive Epiq 7. All the Epiq and Affiniti ultrasound machines look visually very similar and use the same monitor and huge tablet like touchscreen for navigation.
