Mountain View, California (EastBayDaily) — ZONARE, a developer of next generation ultrasound technology, today announced the introduction of its Z.One PRO ultrasound system to worldwide markets. The new system is designed to provide an economical, high performance imaging system for a wide variety of applications. The Z.One PRO recently received FDA 510k clearance.
“The most recent addition to our product line will provide very high image quality without the price tag normally associated with such quality,” said Glen Mclaughlin, president and CTO for ZONARE. “The Living Technology behind the system supports ongoing updates and upgrades further increasing this value proposition.”
The Z.One PRO, like all ZONARE products, is based on proprietary ZONE Sonographyâ¢ Technology (ZST). Introduced a decade ago, ZONARE has been bringing cutting-edge ultrasound technology to clinical environments, enabling unique continuous transmit focus. Unlike conventional beamformer, line-by-line imaging, ZST uses software-driven, large zone acquisitions, rendering an entirely new and different approach to ultrasound data acquisition and image formation. The result is more imaging detail with consistent, superb resolution and uniform imaging at depth from the smallest to the largest of patients throughout the field of view.
As an affordable high performance system, the Z.One PRO offers stellar image quality as a durable, small footprint unit. The one-touch easy image optimization and customizable capabilities are part of an intuitive user interface, supporting a seamless workflow. The high speed boot-up, optional battery pack and wireless features allow for easy transport when needed.
“This new system provides significant imaging capabilities at a very reasonable cost,” said Christopher Raio, MD, MBA, senior member, American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM). “It is exciting to have a system in this price range which offers this high of performance level. The versatility, size and ease-of-use make this an ideal system for a wide variety of imaging needs across all applications.”
