Header and Body 4

Advantages

  • Maintains a constant contact force between the ultrasound probe and patient’s body
  • Improved repeatability and diagnostic capabilities; eliminates image variations with controlled acquisition state 
  • Easier to control & more user friendly
  • Provides the user with visual and audio feedback, informing them the position, orientation, and contact force of the device
  • Provides pushbuttons on the device itself, enabling the user to initiate events (e.g., data recording, zeroing the angle) without needing to interact with a computer; hence users can focus on the device rather than the computer screen.
  • Fits comfortably in an ultrasound technician’s hand
