About Philips CX50

e Philips CX50 is a shared service ultrasound machine largely used in radiology and OB/GYN practices for cardiovascular applications. The CX50 launched in 2009 as the first Philips portable ultrasound and soon became recognized as one of the most advanced portable systems in the world. The Philips CX50 continues to this day to be one of the only premium portable ultrasounds that supports both PureWave single crystal and xMatrix transducers. The only major imaging capability the CX50 doesn’t have is 4D imaging for OB/GYN applications. However, the CX50 can offer 4D imaging for cardiac applications using an X7-2t xMatrix probe. The compact size of the CX50 means it fits well in surgical, emergency, and point-of-care practices where space is tight and mobility is important.
