Mountain View, California (EastBayDaily) — ZONARE Medical Systems, Inc., a developer of next generation ultrasound technology, will showcase the company’s new Z.One PRO ultrasound system at the annual American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) conference being held October 26 – 29, 2014 in Chicago. The system is based on ZONARE’s proprietary ZONE Sonographyâ¢ Technology (ZST).
“The PRO is an ideal system across all clinical ultrasound applications and has proven reliable even for the most challenging patients,” said Chris Raio, MD, MBA, senior member, American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM). “It delivers high performance at an affordable price and is excellent for our extremely busy department.”
Introduced a decade ago, ZONARE’s ZST 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. ZST is also a Living Technology enabling constant upgrades to the platform.
As an affordable high performance system, the Z.One PRO offers stellar image quality in 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. Rapid boot-up, optional battery pack and wireless features allow for easy transport when needed.
“We have been extremely impressed with the image quality of the Z.One PRO,” said Gerardo Chiricolo, MD, senior member, AIUM. “Given the price point of the system, this outstanding performance is quite remarkable. It is rapidly becoming our ‘go to’ system in the department.”
ZONARE will also be showing its ZS3 platform at ACEP, which is designed for larger emergency departments. Like the Z.One PRO, the system is based on ZST, but provides additional options such as the L20-5 transducer for Pediatric, musculoskeletal, breast, testicle, interventional, vascular and contrast enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) advanced research
