3/4/2009 8:32:08 AM

TOKYO, March 4 /PRNewswire/ -- ALOKA announced today the "Advanced Performance 09 Upgrade" for the high-end ProSound Alpha 7 system. The upgrade will be exhibited at ECR 2009 from 6th to 10th of March in Vienna, Austria.

New Specialty Transducers:

"By adding 7 specialty transducers designed for ultrasound guidance in interventional radiology and surgical procedures, the ProSound Alpha 7 offers a comprehensive imaging solution for diagnosis and therapy procedures seamlessly," said Carlos Faustmann, Chief Operating Officer of ALOKA Holding Europe AG., ALOKA's European Headquarters.

The ProSound Alpha 7 Advanced Performance 09 upgrade introduces a total of 11 additional transducers, including 7 interventional radiology & surgical transducers. Specially designed transducers include trans-sphenoidal imaging, spine surgery, laparoscopic surgery and 2 new broadband transducers which can be also used with contrast enhanced ultrasound media during the liver surgical procedures. Several transducers also support Directional eFLOW, high-resolution blood flow imaging feature which is unique to ALOKA. Directional eFLOW allows users to visualize high-resolution blood flow with directional information. Compared to conventional blood flow display methods, D-eFLOW features enhanced spatial resolution for greater detail.
