Customizing the System
Setting the Default Transducer and Preset
You can set a default transducer and preset so that each time the system is turned on, that
transducer and preset are initiated automatically. The system selects the default transducer
regardless of which receptacle it is connected to. If the default transducer is not connected
when the system is turned on, the system initiates the transducer connected to the left-most
connector and the first available preset for that transducer.
1. Touch the name of the transducer you want to use.
2. Touch the preset you want.
3. Touch the transducer name a second time.
4. Touch Set Default.
Clinical Applications and Presets
Clinical applications are broad areas of medical study. Within each clinical application, there are
Philips presets for specific areas of study. For example, within the Small Organs clinical
application, the presets are Thyroid, Testicle, and Breast. The transducer touch screen lists the
available clinical application preset combinations for the selected transducer.
You specify how the system will be set up for operation by selecting a clinical application
Quick Save Presets
Quick Save presets provide a quick way to set imaging parameters to the values you prefer for a
specific exam type. Using the Quick Save feature, you can define presets for any combination of
clinical application, preset, and transducer. A Quick Save preset stores the primary imaging
mode and settings that are active when you create the Quick Save preset.
Once you create a Quick Save preset, it appears on the transducer touch screen when the
associated transducer is selected. When you select the Quick Save preset, the system
automatically invokes the settings in the preset. You can delete existing Quick Save presets,
copy them onto a DVD or USB storage device, and load them into another EPIQ 7 system.
The number of Quick Save presets you can store for a transducer/application combination is
limited only by the number of buttons available on the corresponding transducer touch screen.
The number of buttons available, in turn, is dependent on which application is selected and
how many presets that application includes.
