The SonoSite® MicroMaxx™, a portable ultrasound system reported by us in April, gets new capabilities:
— the addition of two new broadband transducers for use with the MicroMaxx system – the P10/8-4, a high frequency, phased array probe for pediatric and neonatal radiology and the SLA/13-6, a high frequency linear array for imaging the vascular system, musculoskeletal, and superficial structures.
— SonoRES(TM) – a smart algorithm that capitalizes on the powerful processing capability of the system’s Chip Fusion(TM) technology for real time adaptation of speckle reduction in obstetrical, neonatal neurology and abdominal imaging on the P17, C60e and P10 transducers.
— Transcranial Doppler – designed to provide imaging within the required power levels for trans-temporal, trans-occipital and trans-orbital windows on the P17 transducer for neurologists and neuroradiologists.
— Wireless capability – the ability to immediately transfer still frames and clips of dynamic images wirelessly from the patient beside or imaging lab to the interpreting physician via DICOM networks or SonoSite’s PC viewing software, SiteLink(TM).
