Aloka has reported that its new, full featured, compact ultrasound system ProSound Alpha 6 is expected to be introduced at the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) Annual Clinical Meeting, in San Francisco, CA. The ProSound Alpha 6 combines high performance and ease of use with an ergonomic design for the OB/GYN, general imaging, and urology office markets.

Aloka said that building upon the technology of the high performance ProSound Alpha 10 and Alpha 7, the ProSound Alpha 6’s high power processor allows a number of different imaging modes previously seen only in high-end systems. The new system is available with or without 3D/4D imaging and is released with a full suite of application-specific probes and software, customizable reports and network/EMR connectivity capabilities.

The latest addition to the ProSound Alpha series was designed to streamline workflow and to be user- and patient-friendly. Its compact, ergonomic design boasts a large, programmable touch screen for quick access to frequently-used controls. The ProSound Alpha 6 is mobile, economical, and environmentally friendly, with reduced power consumption.

Aloka said that its ProSound Alpha series are fully functional in all work environments from research to ultrasound departments to private practices. With the introduction of the Alpha 6, the Alpha Series offers diagnostic ultrasound solutions to meet users needs at all price points, bolstering Aloka’s vision to ‘Illuminate the change’ and to ‘see the unseen.’

David Famiglietti, chief operating officer of Aloka America, said: “We are extremely proud to launch the ProSound Alpha 6 in the US. The compact and versatile ProSound Alpha 6, with its high performance/cost ratio, is a sound economic investment for your practice.”
