BK Medical, subsidiary of Analogic Corporation announced that it will introduce Flex Focus ultrasound scanner at the American Urological Association (AUA) annual meeting in Chicago. Flex Focus is the latest in the Focus-family series of ultrasound scanners. The novel Flex Focus scanner is a modern, sleek ultrasound system, whose novel design compliments its typical functionality. The company’s Flex Focus features a 19” LCD high-definition monitor that houses the actual scanning unit, making the Flex Focus the mobile solution for sophisticated ultrasound needs. The Flex Focus can be easily docked in several different configurations and its 14 inch (35cm) width means it physically fits into virtually all clinical settings, even smaller, private practice offices. The Flex Focus 19” LCD monitor is positioned vertically on the scanning unit, making it possible to view two large biplane images simultaneously without compromising ultrasound image size. The Flex Focus keyboard is sealed and smooth, with no rough edges or grooves. This makes cleaning and disinfection easy and also reduces the risk of cross-contamination. Michael Brock, President and CEO of BK Medical, says, “Many customers today are interested in laptop scanners, and assume they have to make system compromises if they decide to purchase a mobile system. The Flex Focus addresses this market need. With the Flex Focus, customers do not need to compromise – they get a real, full-size scanner with superior image quality in a small, mobile system.”
