ALOKA Features Upgrades for ProSound Alpha 7 Diagnostic Ultrasound ECR 2009

March 4, 2009 - ALOKA said it will be featuring a new upgrade for its ProSound Alpha 7 system at ECR 2009 in Vienna, Austria, this month.

"By adding 7 specialty transducers designed for ultrasound guidance in interventional radiology and surgical procedures, the ProSound Alpha 7 offers a comprehensive imaging solution for diagnosis and therapy procedures seamlessly," said Carlos Faustmann, COO of ALOKA Holding Europe AG, ALOKA's European Headquarters.

The ProSound Alpha 7 Advanced Performance 09 upgrade introduces a total of 11 additional transducers, including 7 interventional radiology and surgical transducers. Specially designed transducers include transsphenoidal imaging, spine surgery, laparoscopic surgery and 2 new broadband transducers which can be also used with contrast enhanced ultrasound media during the liver surgical procedures. Several transducers also support Directional eFLOW, high-resolution blood flow imaging feature which is unique to ALOKA. Directional eFLOW allows users to visualize high-resolution blood flow with directional information. Compared to conventional blood flow display methods, D-eFLOW features enhanced spatial resolution for greater detail.

A new third-generation, contrast resolution-enhanced 17-inch LCD flat panel display is also available in the Advanced Performance 09 Upgrade. The new generation display panel significantly improves the image quality of the displayed ultrasound images.

The system also complies with Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise-Europe (IHE-E) for network communication which is an indispensable feature for medical data communication with servers.

Although it is likely that existing ultrasound systems will be repurposed to treat COVID-19 patients, growth is still expected as companies plan to ramp up production. The ultrasound systems market will therefore outpace other diagnostic imaging such as computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Leading data and analytics company GlobalData forecasts the market will reach $6bn by 2028, but increased usage due to COVID-19 is anticipated have a tangible effect.
