The refurbished Philips iU22 shared service ultrasound machine, launched in 2004, has had a long history of improvements and revisions that have made it the gold standard for over a decade. The Philips iU22 for sale is equipped with xMatrix transducers (at certain hardware and software levels) and 4D obstetric, giving you advanced features at a reasonable cost.
As a shared service system, the iU22 can perform cardiac, radiology, vascular, OB/GYN, and specialty imaging applications, such as pediatric, MSK, and elastography (consider the slightly better equipped Philips iE33 for cardiovascular-specific applications). The Philips iU22 was replaced by the modernized Philips Epiq 5, however the iU22 continues to be the popular choice due to its affordable price range for physicians who need high image quality.
At one time, the Philips iU22 was considered by some as the best ultrasound machine on the market for radiology needs. It has since become an end-of-life product for Philips, however, we still refurbish, sell, and have parts and probes for the iU22.
The iU22 becomes increasingly scarce over the years, and is considered best for those with extremely limited resources and budgets. Consider an Epiq 5 or Affiniti model in place of the iU22 for something a little more recent.
