The US Food and Drug Administration has granted 510(k) approval for the Esaote North America’s MyLab Six ultrasound system.

The new ultrasound system can be used in applications ranging from cardiovascular and musculoskeletal to ob-gyn and general imaging.

MyLab Six is available with different high-resolution wide screen monitors. It can be integrated with healthcare networks through a set of DICOM and IHE compliant profiles, as the system holds five convenient USB ports.

Esaote North America president and general manager Larry Dentice said the current practices need ultrasound systems that deliver high quality images across a broad spectrum of clinical applications.

"In their quest to deliver quality healthcare at an affordable cost, practices are continually evolving and MyLab Six can evolve with them," Dentice added.

The company noted that the system is a combination of ergonomics with quiet scanning, appleprobe transducers, touchscreen operation and adjustable system height.
