October 18, 2016 — Analogic Corp. announced last week that it will introduce its new premium cardiac imaging software for the bk3500 ultrasound system at the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) Scientific Assembly, Oct. 16–19, 2016, in Las Vegas.

BK Ultrasound’s bk3500 system was launched in the United States in March of 2016 to satisfy the needs of emergency and other point-of-care (POC) departments, with adaptable layouts that cater to all expertise levels and an interface that walks the user through the exam step by step from data entry to reporting. This new software release provides a level of cardiac imaging that is designed to reach beyond POC standards to be on par with premium shared-service ultrasound systems.

“The imaging performance on the new software release of the bk3500 is a significant enhancement,” said Christopher C. Raio, M.D., MBA FACEP, chairman, emergency medicine, Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center, and chief, emergency medicine service line, Catholic Health Services, Long Island, N.Y. “BK Ultrasound listened to feedback from physicians and brought substantial improvements that will really help us at the bedside.”

The bk3500 is a robust, slender, easy-to-maneuver premium ultrasound system that delivers high image quality, integrated IT functionality, a long-lasting battery, and a hybrid user-interface with both tactile buttons and touch screen. In addition, the rapid boot-up time and guided workflow allow clinicians to start exams quicker and finish faster.

To ensure a complete point-of-care solution, bkHub offers a software image management system designed for storage, quality assurance, training and billing to help streamline the emergency department workflow and reduce the time, cost and paperwork associated with clinical practice.

Other advanced features of the bk3500 ultrasound system include:

  • Absolute Workflow, which ensures that the system is easy and designed for everyone; and
  • Vector Flow Imaging Assist, which is currently being studied to measure its impact on fluid responsiveness in septic patients. The novel technology automatically finds maximum velocity, measuring the diameter of the vessel, and calculating flow volume in a matter of seconds.

BK Ultrasound will feature live scanning at its booth during ACEP 2016.
