Analogic Launches Three BK Ultrasound Systems With Image Enhancement Software

February 9, 2012 – Analogic, a medical imaging and aviation security technology company, announced the worldwide launch of three BK Medical ultrasound systems, the Pro Focus UltraView 800, the Flex Focus 800, and the Flex Focus 500, each incorporating Quantum technology. Significant new features and advancements from the Quantum Technology improve the practice of medicine by providing clinicians a faster and easier way to maximize ultrasound performance in urology, surgery, general imaging and anesthesiology.

Quantum technology offers image quality enhancements including improved contrast resolution, as well as new gray scale maps and new image pre-sets, making it easier and quicker to obtain the highest quality images. In addition, the new technology includes a vector flow imaging (VFI) mode, enabling angle independent visualization of blood flow, and an advanced color Doppler mode, enabling superb spatial resolution. Key benefits also include advanced harmonic imaging when imaging all patient types, even the difficult-to-image patient.

Compatible with all of BK Medical's transducers, the fully featured, premium performance ultrasound systems are ideally suited for surgery, including robotic-assisted surgery, general imaging and high-end urology imaging. The UltraView 800 system also has contrast imaging capabilities, and both the UltraView 800 and Flex Focus 800 systems have a HistoScanning ready option. The Flex Focus 500 is the mid-range system. This portable system is powerful and well suited for a busy practice utilizing ultrasound for urology and general imaging needs. All of the new systems also have VFI as an option. The full BK Medical product portfolio includes the Flex Focus 200, 200 Surgery, 400 Anesthesia, 700, and the Pro Focus UltraView.

 *VFI is not licensed by Health Canada and is FDA-cleared for the Ultraview 800.

 *Contrast imaging capabilities are FDA-cleared for cardiac applications only.

*HistoScanning is not an FDA-market-cleared application or licensed by Health Canada.
