    PureWave (x800)

    • Outstanding image quality even in technically difficult patients (TDP)1
    • PureWave crystals have virtually perfect uniformity for greater bandwidth and twice the efficiency of conventional ceramic materials. The result is excellent detail resolution, superb Doppler sensitivity and exceptional shear wave elastography performance

    Flow Viewer

    Flow Viewer has the benefit of clearly defining adult, paediatric and foetal vasculature, along with foetal heart,  with its  "3D like appearance".  The 3D appearance has its advantages in clarity and boundary definition over traditional colour flow for vessel and foetal cardiac identification

    • 3D-like visualisation across all modes
    • Enhanced ability to resolve adjacent vessels
    • Better colour containment within the vessel lumen
    • Four user-selected levels
    • Available in real-time and post-processing


    Case study:
    Flow Viewer enhances colour flow Doppler and aids in the diagnosis of a foetal renal abnormality

    Use anywhere. Trust everywhere.

    Ergonomic and lightweight, our broad range of transducers is available in multiple configurations, enabling better penetration with less artifacts. Learn more about our full range of transducers below, and detailed instructions on care and maintenance.
