SonoSite received FDA clearance for its EDGE ultrasound system that features new imaging algorithms and the largest high resolution LED screen of any SonoSite device. The EDGE is built to be a durable ultrasound for regular use and can withstand three foot drops thanks to titanium outsides and aluminum insides. The sealed silicone keypad keeps the liquid whatevers at bay from the electronics.
SonoSite is awaiting CE Marking to move forward with delivering the device worldwide.
