Description

A uniquely simplified ultrasound system

The Sparq ultrasound system features Simplicity Mode, a one-touch solution that presents only the controls you use most often.

PureWave transducer technology for technically difficult patients

The exceptional performance of PureWave results in improved diagnostic confidence, especially on technically difficult patients. PureWave transducer technology is available on two Sparq transducers: the C5-1 and X7-2t.

The gold standard for security

Philips recognises the importance of securing your ultrasound system and protecting your patients’ data. The security feature is a defense-in-depth strategy that comprises five layers: firewall, operating system hardening, malware protection, access controls and patient data encryption. Each of these layers plays an important role in helping you thwart hackers, defend against malware, and prevent unauthorised access.

Ergonomic design for ease of use in challenging environments

Sparq is height-adjustable, has a small footprint and features a large 17-inch monitor on an articulating arm. This makes it easy to position even in the most challenging clinical environments. Easy clip, our innovative cable management solution, keeps cables tangle-free. You can use the optional barcode scanner to obtain patient information from your hospital-generated barcode, accelerating efficiency and decreasing data entry errors.

Remote Reporting

Sparq’s Remote Reporting* feature provides clinicians with remote access to the Telexy Qpath™** data management system. This feature allows clinicians to interact with the ultrasound images and Qpath worksheets directly from Sparq. The ability to complete and approve ultrasound exam reports at the point of care uniquely enhances the workflow.

Automation features to make scanning easy

To make scanning easy, Sparq is designed with an intuitive dynamic interface that removes complexity. To decrease interaction with system controls, AutoSCAN automatically identifies tissue type and continuously adjusts image gain while scanning.

Sealed control panel enables easy cleaning

Sparq features a sealed, easy-to-clean, tempered glass control panel that enables easy cleaning.

Battery operation saves critical time

Battery operation and ‘instant on’ features facilitate rapid assessment when time is crucial. You can perform multiple exams without system shut down.

Easy procedure guidance

Sparq features Needle Visualisation, a needle guidance technology that enhances the presentation of the needle without degrading the image, facilitating quick needle guidance to the target anatomy. The L12-4 and C6-2 transducers have a centreline mark to make out-of-plane procedures easy.
