Philips BV Endura

If you’re looking for a durable, flexible machine we propose the Philips BV Endura. It offers all the capability expected of a c-arm needed for everyday use and surpasses it with vascular functionality. It achieves this with its 12-inch image intensifier which provides greater coverage and its c-arm rotates up to 135 degrees to get the angles needed for most vascular procedures.

The refurbished BV Endura has SmartVision, which is a set of advanced controls allowing superb images at the lowest possible x-ray dose. These include1k x 1k resolution, noise reduction, 2D edge enhancement, BodySmart, and built-in contrast and brightness refinements. The images can be viewed immediate on the dual-focus monitors and/or sent directly to the picture archiving and communication system (PACS). The BV Endura is guided by DoseWise, which is Philips’ committed ideal of achieving  As Low As Reasonably Achievable (ALARA) patient exposure management. It does this by utilizing filters, built-in controlled settings, and a variety of exposure modes.

Specifications

Coverage

Positioned as a mid-level performer, the BV Endura builds on the strengths of the BV Libra by broadening vascular capabilities.  Our bigger 12” image intensifier provides a larger coverage for improved anatomical orientation.  And we have extended the C-arm rotation – up to 135o – to provide you with projections necessary for most vascular procedures.

Image Enhancement

The next generation in C-arm imaging is SmartVision.  This combination of advanced technologies in place across the imaging chain, results in high quality images at a low X-ray dose.  Some highlights include:

  • 1K2imaging – A fully digital imaging chain with advanced noise reduction and 2D edge enhancements for higher image quality
  • BodySmart – Software that finds, tracks and defines the field of view to anatomy for ‘first shot right’ imaging
  • Automatic Shutter Positioning – Optimal shutter positioning for the best quality image possible and a clear view of the region of interest
  • Automatic Contrast/Brightness – Real-time contrast and brightness control at the touch of a button improves ease-of-use and provides faster control for better image quality

Intelligent Viewing Options

Intelligent viewing options

Optimally designed, the MobileView Station’s ultra-compact size makes it easy to move around the tight confines of the OR.  And its small footprint ensures it can be brought as close as possible to the operating table.

  • At the MobileView Station the operator can manually enter patient demographics or retrieve a worklist via the hospital network.
  • Monitors are turned toward the physician at any angle at the start of the procedure and back to the operator at the end to process the images.
  • Processed images are immediately sent to PACS
  • Two 18” monitors ensure high quality image viewing
  • Monitor height can be quickly adjusted to physician preference

Widely Useful

You’ll find the BV Endura can handle a full range of applications including:

  • Vascular procedures
  • Orthopedic surgery
  • Abdominal surgery
  • Neurosurgical procedures
