US-based Escalon Medical has announced its plans to introduce a new tablet-based ultrasound imaging system, the Sonomed Escalon VuPad, at the upcoming 117th Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO), 16 November to 19 November 2013 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.
The Sonomed Escalon VuPad offers A-scan, B-scan, and/or UBM modalities in a sleek, tablet-like package.
Key features include portable ergonomic design, elegant user interface, wireless interconnectivity to EMR’s, image management systems, and printers, multi-touch ultra high resolution touch screen with pinch zoom functionality, and most notably, outstanding image quality and measurement accuracy.
Escalon Medical CEO Richard J DePiano Jr noted the company is excited to introduce the VuPad, the latest in portable ultrasound technology.
"Its upcoming launch, along with the VuMAX HD introduced earlier this calendar year, demonstrates the Company’s continued focus on developing and delivering new best-in-class ophthalmic ultrasound solutions," DePiano Jr added.
The company anticipates shipments of VuPad systems as early as the end of the calendar year following clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration and other regulatory bodies.
