FUJIFILM SonoSite, a specialist in developing point-of-care ultrasound solutions, has announced the launch of two new transducers for the SonoSite iViz point-of-care ultrasound, now connecting a total of four to its hand-held diagnostic tool.
iViz is a lightweight, miniaturised ultrasound system that can fit into a pocket and can be taken anywhere. Now with the addition of the L25v and C60v transducers to its portfolio, the iViz enables clinicians the ability to view superficial applications such as ophthalmic, arterial, venous, lung and nerve as well as deeper applications such as abdominal and obstetrics.
“FUJIFILM SonoSite designs, manufactures, and tests transducers in-house with real-world customer needs in mind,” said Diku Mandavia, MD, FACEP FRCPC, chief medical officer and senior vice president, FUJIFILM SonoSite. “Our transducers exceed stringent military specifications for drop-testing so you can use them with confidence in the most demanding of environments. “
The iViz combines a seven-inch high-resolution display and proprietary imaging technology and is manufactured using aircraft aluminum with beveled edges to protect the display and device from fluid ingress. Additionally, all transducers are drop-tested to 3 feet and are IPX-7 rated, making them fully submergible in water and approved disinfectants.
The SonoSite L25v transducer is available for superficial applications such as ophthalmic, arterial, venous, lung and nerve. The C60v transducer is available for deeper applications such as abdominal, lung and obstetrics. The pocket-sized, one-hand operated device offers 2D image quality with new exam presets, calculations and measurements suitable for acute care, internal medicine, obstetrics and veterinary.
