TOKYO, March 6 /PRNewswire/ -- ALOKA Co., Ltd. will be unveiling a new diagnostic ultrasound system at the European Congress of Radiology - ECR2009 - to be held from March 6th, 2009 in Vienna, Austria.
Economic pressures continue to generate demand for ultrasound systems with higher cost-effectiveness, flexibility, ease of use, and functionality.
The ProSound 4 is a stand-alone, black-and-white system with the latest digital technologies engineered into a compact body for higher image quality at an affordable price. The system is compatible with many probes to meet the needs of diverse applications in fields such as Radiology, OB/GYN, Urology, and Surgery. Advanced technologies originally developed for high-end models promise extreme diagnostic precision with the ProSound 4. Connectivity with DICOM networks provides a new cost-effective imaging solution never before available at any hospital, large or small. The compact, lightweight system permits ultrasound examinations at almost any location, from bedside to the examination room.
A Full Digital System for High Image Quality
The ProSound 4 achieves superb image quality based on technologies for high-end models, including ExPHD (Extended Pure Harmonic Detection) and the Edge Enhance function. ExPHD, a well-established technology in high-end models, produces clearer displays of original information from tissue by reducing artifacts caused by multiple echoes and side lobes.
Simple and Easy to Use
The ProSound 4 is slim and lightweight, with large casters to facilitate smooth movement and ergonomic positioning for the operator.
The ProSound 4 is compatible with the measurement and reporting functions of many applications. This versatile ultrasound system is designed with useful features and functions for routine examinations, including digital image archiving, a standard USB memory port, network connectivity, and digital data export in DICOM, JPEG, and BMP formats.
ProSound 4 consumes 40 percent less power than previous conventional models. The system facilitates the segregation, reuse, and recycling of waste products in accordance with the EU WEEE Directive. ALOKA is significantly reducing environmental impacts with the design of new systems like the ProSound 4.
ALOKA Co., Ltd. is a pioneer in the development of diagnostic ultrasound systems. Our diagnostic ultrasound systems are used worldwide. We commercialized electronic convex sector scanner and Color Doppler systems that display blood flow images, which are indispensable for today's ultrasound examinations, first in the world.
