Benefits

High-resolution images for a high level of confidence


  • Needle recognition supports vision in three key areas—needle, anatomy and motion - to help accurately reveal the structure of a needle within anatomy, without distortion. Precisely visualize your target and surrounding anatomy – all with defined edges and detail.
  • Power Doppler Imaging (PDI) highlights vascular sensitivity for fine vascularity and low flow.
  • PDI quantification for diagnosis and monitoring.
  • PDI sensitivity helps verify the presence of blood flow to help detect small vessels, inflammation and disease states in adult and pediatric patients.
  • Color and PDI quantification helps measure blood flow within a specific area to assist with diagnosis and monitoring.

Remarkably easy to use – regardless of your application

  • Choose from three probes - always connected - for quick access to multiple exams.
