SonoSite, Inc. has introduced the S-Women’s Health ultrasound tool, a custom-designed solution to enable women’s health clinicians to provide comprehensive care in the patient exam room. “The S-Women’s Health is great to have in the exam room because if a patient comes in with a lump, I am able to quickly and easily determine if it is something like fibrocystic thickening, or if it requires additional evaluations,” said Deanna J. Attai, MD, FACS, Center for Breast Care in Burbank, California. “When you consider the quality and affordability of the system and the fact that you can pick it up and take it to the operating room, you just can’t get a better tool for your practice than the S-Women’s Health system.” The S-Women’s Health ultrasound tool is designed with women’s health clinicians in mind. It is sophisticated, yet simple and easy to use. Buttons, dials and menus have been eliminated from the interface, with the exception of two controls- Depth and Gain- for acquiring the optimum image quality. SonoSite’s proprietary advanced technologies, SonoHD and SonoMB, are incorporated, providing crystal-clear imaging and enabling the physician to visualize minute details. With the capacity to zero-in on a targeted area, company’s advanced SonoAdapt technology enables the clinician to confidently locate masses, target lesions, guide biopsies, and initiate a course of treatment. “Breast ultrasound is an extension of the physical exam in any woman with a palpable breast abnormality. It has become second nature to use it,” said Kathryn A. Wagner, MD, PA, Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio. The S-Women’s Health tool design is engineered such a way that it is to be placed on a stand or mounted on an exam room ceiling or wall to be easily accessible at the examining table. The system is configured to work with four broadband transducers to provide high resolution superficial, abdominal, vascular and pelvic imaging, allowing physicians to address a wide spectrum of women’s health concerns.
