eHD Technology: A New Era In Ultrasound

  • – Enhanced Diagnostic Value
  • – Maximizing Signal Information
  • – Low Power Consumption
  • – More Efficient Healthcare

eHD is Esaote’s technology to innovateultrasound imaging and improve systems’ use. It represents our attention to diagnostic value by optimizing all aspects of the chain a signal has to travel through, starting from the echo generated by the patient’s body up to the arrival on the system’s monitor. It maximizes the efficiency of ultrasound scanning, leaving the sonographer free to concentrate on the patient. eHD: the quality that improves your diagnostic confidence.

iQProbes: appleprobe, An Innovative Approach In Ergonomics

The appleprobe keeps the hand and wrist in their natural alignment by distributing the grip throughout the whole hand just as you grip an apple. When not scanning you can relieve tension on the fingers and wrist, simply by keeping the probe between the fingers. The appleprobe has been designed for both innovative and traditional grips thanks to its innovative palm hold and conventional pincer hold.

eTouch: A Standard Ultrasound System Becomes A Personal Application-Specific Diagnostic Tool

Customized settings and multiple functions can be organized according to clinical practice and preferences and then easily recalled by just pressing a button.

By pressing the eTouch button, the user can display the controls and functions that they really need in clinical practice for improved comfort and reduced examination time. eTouch dedicated sessions allow the user to record different macros. Based on any single user‘s needs and preferences, multiple functions can be included with just one touch for fewer keystrokes and faster diagnosis.

SmarTouch: Extending Productivity Wide ranging image settings, user preferences and clinical targets, normally require time and attention. SmarTouch delivers dedicated settings for any anatomical region so optimal images are displayed with just one touch.

XStrain4D: By combining XStrain analysis of standard apical views (2Ch, 4Ch, ALAX), XStrain4D provides complete volumetric assessment of left ventricle. Global and regional curves as well as strain/strain-rate and volume measurements may be easily and quickly displayed.

RFQIMT – RFQAS : RFQIMT (Quality Intima Media Thickness) and RFQAS (Quality Arterial Stiffness) are based on Esaote’s innovative RF-data technology. Accuracy, ease of use, real-time feedback, graphs and reports are part of this innovative package for early-diagnosis clinical practice.

ElaXto: ElaXto is a non-invasive method to support the physician in assessing tissue elasticity. The differences in tissue responses are detected and visualized in real-time to help physicians in the daily clinical routine. iQ Probes’ high sensitivity increases exam reproducibility and reduces operator dependence.
