ACC TEST - New Ultrasound Visualization Tool for Interventional Radiology, Cath Labs

October 30, 2007- SonoSite Inc. today introduced the S-Cath visualization tool, a specialized ultrasound device designed to meet the specific point-of-care imaging and procedural guidance needs of interventional radiologists and cardiologists.

With its user-centered design, the S-Cath tool reportedly provides interventionalists and cardiologists immediate access to images. Its available suite of curved, linear and phased array transducers cover a range of guidance for interventional procedures such as line placement, biopsy, dialysis access, stent placement, femoral and other vascular access and fluid drainage as well as abdominal and cardiovascular imaging applications. With standard VESA compliant mounting capabilities, the system offers a zero footprint option for crowded interventionalist suites and cath labs. It can be mounted adjacent to other imaging modalities and moved in and out of the physician�s line of sight as needed.

SonoSite designed the S-Cath tool with the same form factor and functions that it built into all of the S Series devices. The S Series devices feature the advanced processing power of SonoSite�s recently introduced M-Turbo system, and utilizes the new SonoADAPT, SonoHD and SonoMB technologies for dramatic improvements in image quality.

Clinicians can export images from the S Series tools to a USB storage device in standard PC formats, MPEG4 (H.264), JPEG, HTML and BMP, for review or storage on PC or Mac computers. The S Series devices sport three high speed (480Mbps) USB 2.0 ports for quick and seamless data management to facilitate patient record keeping, diagnostic consultation, instruction and publishing.
