Alpinion Medical Systems, a firm out of Seoul, South Korea, is releasing its new E-CUBE i7 portable ultrasound system. The E-CUBE i7 is intended for both common ultrasound applications as well as specialty uses in anesthesia, ER, pain management, and orthopedics. It features the firm’s Needle Vision technology that helps track needles during placement while maintaining visualization of the tissues around.
The laptop-like device has a sliding keyboard cover that keeps dust out while letting clinicians rest their wrists on top of it while using the joystick and various buttons and switches on the control panel.
The device comes with Alpinion’s Crystal Signature transducers and runs software optimizers that provide speckle reduction, spatial compounding, and harmonic imaging.
More about the device according to Alpinion:
The system comes with 8 transducers, including linear, convex, phased array and endocavity transducers to provide scanning solutions for a wide range of clinical cases. In particular, the hockey stick-shaped IO8-17T is ideal choice forrheumatology practices. The IO8-17T providing extreme high frequency images improves Joint aspiration and injection accuracy and offers excellent resolution in the extreme near field, while the shape enables the user to easily maneuver the device into tight spots without losing grip.
It has a 15.6 inch wide, high resolution LED monitor with IPS technology to relieve eye strain and provide a clear image from all viewing angles. The E-CUBE i7’s dramatically reduced fan noise is roughly equivalent to the level of sound in a library. With the advantage of SSD technology, the E-CUBE i7 is ready for scanning in fewer than 45 seconds from start-up.
