Philips

The Philips Affiniti 70, is a high-end shared service ultrasound machine that was developed in 2014 from the premium Epiq 7. The Affiniti 70 looks nearly identical to the Epiq 7 and 5 and offers many of the same features like single crystal PureWave transducers. The Affiniti 70 also has many of the same technologies as the Epiq series, including the amazing QLAB onboard quantification set and ShareWave elastography. The Philips Affiniti 70 is unique in the high-end price category in offering ShearWave. As a shared service ultrasound machine the Affiniti 70 excels at cardiology as well as women’s health, vascular and radiology applications. Philips is most well known for its cardiac imaging superiority over other brands, but the Philips Affiniti 70 is also amazingly feature rich with excellent image quality at its price level. Doctors that like the Affiniti 70, but don’t need the PureWave transducers or ShearWave Elastography should consider the less expensive Affiniti 50 instead.

Overview

Application training for the Philips Affiniti 70

KPI’s on-staff sonographer can provide onsite applications training or remote training via video conference at a set price plus travel costs. A pre-recorded video training course is included in the sale, lease or rental of the Philips Affiniti 70 from KPI ultrasound.

Philips Affiniti 70 Service options

Free technical support is available from KPI during installation and over the course of the standard limited warranty. Technical support is available after the warranty period at an hourly cost per issue.

Philips Affiniti 70 Maintenance

KPI recommends the use of a surge protector along with a dedicated power outlet. Probes should be disinfected after every use with a disinfectant wipe proven not to damage the lens (KPI recommends SonoWipes for this.) KPI recommends one PM visit (preventative maintenance) every year.

Revisions

Philips Affiniti 70 Revisions

Philips first launched the Affiniti 70 in 2014 as their new high-end shared service ultrasound machine, replacing the older HD15. As of 2016, the Affiniti 70 has not yet had a major revision, and only minor software updates have been released. The Affiniti series has had one of the most trouble-free launches in Philips history, being built from what was learned in the first year of fixes for the premium Epiq line.

Affiniti 70 Transducers: 4D & Matrix

The Philips Affiniti 70 supports four advanced single crystal PureWave transducers; the [ 1 – 5 MHz ] C5-1 convex, the [ 2 – 9 MHz ] C9-2 convex meant for pediatric work, the [ 3 – 10 MHz ] C10-3v endovaginal, and the [ 1 – 5 MHz ] S5-1 cardiac sector probe. The Affiniti 70 also supports two transesophegeal or TEE probes, the [ 3 – 7 MHz ] S7-3t pediatric and the [ 2 – 7 MHz ] X7-2t adult. The X7-2t is an xMatrix transducer but on the Affiniti 70 it only functions in 2D mode. The Epiq line and the CX50 however can use the full xPlane and 4D functions of the X7-2t. The Philips Affiniti 70 also has the [ 5 – 10 MHz ] biplane endocavitary probe that allows scanning in 2 planes without moving the transducer. Another specialty transducer is the [ 7 – 15 MHz ] L15-7io intraoperative linear, also known as a “hockey stick” probe for it’s distinctive shape that allows it to fit into tight surgical applications or small parts scanning.

Popular Philips Affiniti 70 Probes

The C5-1 PureWave is the most popular convex probe for the Affiniti 70 because of its superb image quality and penetration. Likewise the C10-3v PureWave is the most popular endovaginal for the same reasons. The [ 3 – 12 MHz ] L12-3 is the most popular linear on the Affiniti 70 because it is affordable, and strong in both vascular and MSK imaging. For cardiac scanning the [ 1 – 5 MHz ]

S5-1 is the most commonly selected, again for the improved image quality at low MHz ranges that would normally lose clarity as the penetration increased.

Competitors

How the Affiniti 70 compares with other Philips systems

The Philips Affiniti 70 was launched in 2014 as the successor to the reliable HD15. The Affiniti 70 improves upon the HD15 with a larger monitor, a touchscreen for navigation, improved processor speed and more transducers. The Affiniti 70 was designed from the Epiq series and looks very similar to them, being only smaller in the size of the lower body of the ultrasound machine. The monitor, touchscreen and keyboard are identical to the Epiq. The Epiq 5 is positioned just above the Affiniti 70 in price and features a more powerful image processor and a few more features.

Philips Affiniti 70 vs Affiniti 50

The Affiniti 70 and 50 were launched at the same time and look virtually identical on the outside, with only a minor color difference in the main body. The Affiniti 50 is positioned just below the Affiniti 70 in price and sacrifices the PureWave transducers and ShearWave elastography. The Affiniti 70 represents the best cost to benefits ratio, being roughly $10,000 US dollars more than the Affiniti 50 Those with budget constraints should consider the midrange Affiniti 50 instead. Both systems are extremely reliable and well designed.

Other brands competing with the Affiniti 70

The closest competitor to the Philips Affiniti 70 from GE would be the Logiq S8, as both are shared service ultrasound machines capable of all applications. However the Voluson S8, and Vivid S6 would be similar competitors in women’s health, and cardiac respectively. The Affiniti 70 feels superior to the Logiq S8 in speed and monitor/touchscreen size. The Affiniti menus seem cleaner and more modern as well. The Accuvix A30 would be the closest competitor from Samsung, though it’s strength is much more lopsided in 4D and women’s health with only minor support for cardiac and general imaging compared to the more robust Affiniti 70. Most importantly the Affinti 70 has noticeably better image quality than competing systems from other brands.
