Royal Philips announced it has received 510(k) clearance from the FDA to market the new eL18-4 transducer with full solution for 'small parts' assessment, which is an ultrasound exam to detect abnormalities in the small organs that are close to the skin. The Philips Ultimate Small Parts Solution features four key innovations that work together to help improve patient care: the eL18-4 PureWave linear array transducer, Philips MicroFlow Imaging, Philips Elastography and Philips Precision Biopsy. The new eL18-4 transducer can also be used to assess musculoskeletal injuries.
