Carestream Health has secured approval from Health Canada for its Touch Prime and Touch Prime XE ultrasound systems.
The company designed the Touch ultrasound platform based on the recommendations of sonographers and ultrasound professionals from different parts of the world.
The Touch ultrasound platform includes an all-touch user interface, compact profile, easy maneuverability and adjustable features.
Swipe-and-go system activation is said to configure the interface to each user’s preferences, while the bar code reader reduces key strokes to save time.
The platform’s wireless connectivity helps to quickly transfer images and data to PACS, RIS or other systems.
In June 2015, Carestream received 510(k) clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Touch Prime and Touch Prime XE ultrasound systems.
Both ultrasound systems include sealed and all-touch control panel that helps in easy cleaning to restrict the spread of pathogens while its advanced computing power claims to offer both speed and enhanced image quality.
Carestream provides specialized transducers for radiology, OB/GYN, musculoskeletal and vascular imaging.
Carestream X-ray and ultrasound solutions worldwide marketing director Helen Titus said: “Our ultrasound systems provide exceptional image quality and streamline measurements to expedite clinician access to critical imaging information while boosting staff productivity.
“Advanced computing power and our SynTek architecture deliver a simultaneous increase in frame rate, improved penetration and uniform focus throughout the field of view.”
