Ultrasonix Medical Corporation Announces New Digital Ultrasound Exam Recording Technology


9/23/2010 9:11:19 AM

RICHMOND, British Columbia, Sept. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Ultrasonix Medical Corporation, a leading developer and manufacturer of high quality diagnostic ultrasound imaging systems is pleased to announce today the introduction of SonixVCR, a software-based innovation that records, stores, and exports entire exams in a standard digital format.

SonixVCR is an easy to use on-board recording feature that is enabled with the click of 1-button. Available on the Sonix Series ultrasound systems, SonixVCR can record up to 60 minutes of imaging per file, the same way an external VCR or digital recorder would - without the need for any additional hardware or external recording device.

SonixVCR files are compressed and saved as MPEG1 recordings and can be easily stored or shared electronically within the same HIPPA Compliance Protocols as still or multi-frame images. Because they are in a digital format they will not degrade over time as compared to traditional storage media such as VCR tapes or CD/DVD discs. Exam reviews are no longer limited to short clips. Instead the entire exam can be reviewed from start to finish. Since the file sizes are approximately 50 times smaller than comparable CINE clips, SonixVCR files can be easily distributed for review.

These files also seamlessly transfer to SonixHUB, a proven Ultrasonix exclusive exam management, credentialing and archiving solution. SonixVCR partnered with SonixHUB provides users with a superior workflow solution to archive, review, and store comprehensive files of a patient's entire exam data.
