Clarke County Hospital Hosts Midwest's Newest Ultrasound and Imaging Technology

New Philips Affiniti 70 Ultrasound Technology Available at Clarke County Hospital 

(OSCEOLA, IA) Clarke County Hospital is excited to announce the arrival of the new Philips Affiniti 70 Ultrasound equipment! The Affiniti 70 was first introduced to Europe back in 2014 and is just being introduced to the United States. It is currently made in Bothell, Washington, a suburb of Seattle. Clarke County Hospital is the first Imaging Department in the Midwest to have it installed and available to patients. 

Engineered for efficiency and reliability, the Affiniti 70 is 90% software driven which means that it is smaller, faster, easier to move, and can perform more detailed and automatized functions than most ultrasound equipment available today. It utilizes PureWave imaging technology and precision beamforming across all major clinical segments making it extremely versatile.

In women’s health, the Affiniti 70 can deliver outstanding image quality and advanced tools for all gestational ages and complex gynecological cases. Its exceptional 3D surface rendering can also diagnose anomalies in all general imaging including abdominal and small parts/tissue. Considered a complete cardiovascular solution, the Affiniti 70 can provide both adult and pediatric echocardiography (including TEE), stress echocardiography, left ventricular opacification, vascular imaging, and quantification (measuring) tools.

The Affiniti 70’s intuitive design will be extremely beneficial in serving the local community because it provides the hospital’s practitioners with higher quality imagery and efficiency while delivering enhanced comfort and diagnostics to our patients; keeping Clarke County Hospital on the cutting edge of technology.

Clarke County Hospital is now accepting physician referred appointments on the new Affiniti 70 Ultrasound system!
