MicroFlow (MFI) and MicroFlow-HD (MFI-HD) imaging mode

Detect low-velocity micro-vessel anatomy in tissue without using contrast

MicroFlow Imaging (MFI) is a Philips-proprietary mode designed to detect slow and weak blood flow anatomy in tissue. It maintains a high frame rate and excellent 2D image quality while applying artifact reduction techniques. 2D image subtraction, 2D blending and side/side display options offer versatility in visualization.   

MFI-HD is a sub-function of MFI. It offers twice the sensitivity and resolution of MFI in assessing blood flow [1]. MFI HD is well-suited for studies requiring high resolution and sensitivity, including neonatal head, fetal/placental circulation, renal/abdominal, breast, MSK, small parts, and CEUS exams.

Spatial temporal clutter filter

The spatial-spatial-temporal clutter filter helps remove unwanted tissue clutter from flow signals.

Vessel enhancement algorithm

The vessel enhancement algorithm in MFI HD technology improves spatial resolution, enhances visualization and reduces noise[1].

Four display modes

Four display modes based on if tissue subtraction and echo-flow compare are used, allowing customization of images.

MFI and MFI HD is available on these transducers, C5-1, C9-2, L12-3, C8-5 and eL18-4
