Esaote Launches Improved Imaging Software for Ultrasound, MRI

March 6, 2013 — Esaote launched its next generation imaging technology for dedicated magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound. The eHD for ultrasound and eXP technology for dedicated MRI represent step-change innovations in the accuracy, quality, speed and flexibility of imaging technology.

“What we are launching today represents a complete re-thinking and re-engineering of our technologies in Dedicated MRI and Ultrasound,” said Claudio Buffagni — global marketing director at Esaote. “Our vision, investment and intense technical focus has enabled the realization of technology capable of serving the demands of medicine now and for another generation.”

eHD Ultrasound Technology

eHD is the culmination of a complete re-engineering process through the image capture, processing and display interfaces of Esaote’s MyLab ultrasound systems.  eHD represents a step-change in ultrasound diagnostic quality and flexibility.

At its core the eHD Technology features the eHD Pulser creating optimal ultrasound beam waveform for ultimate image clarity with no frame rate reduction. eHD has also been applied to Esaote’s iQProbe to improve transducer bandwidth and deliver increased signal sensitivity. An appleprobe’ grip configuration has also been introduced for greater operator control and comfort.

eHD features key software development to reduce interference and deliver better visibility of internal structures and improved readability and diagnosis. Esaote’s advanced Doppler technology has been updated with the introduction of eHD CFM, which offers optimized vessel border detection with increased sensitivity and depth. For high resolution, high definition work, eHD XFlow is available to maximize spatial resolution and Doppler signal penetration.

Inside every Esaote eHD Technology optimized system is an array of the latest visualization tools and technologies including Virtual Navigator and multi dimensional imaging capability, ensuring the very best diagnostic image is available to the operator in the most relevant format.

eXP MRI Technology

eXP musculoskeletal dedicated MRI system technology pushes Esaote’s systems faster with more accurate acquisition and reconstruction processing for improved image quality. Scan times are dramatically reduced, as are overall power consumption and running costs.

To increase the speed of image acquisition and reconstruction, eXP combines powerful GPU hardware with advanced software, producing superior quality images with substantially reduced scan times. For example, Fast Spin Echo (FSE) sequences can be obtained up to 40 percent faster with eXP Technology.

eXP features improved methods to manage the Echo Train Length combined with highly sophisticated algorithms for the acquisition and reconstruction of the K-space to improve diagnostic accuracy. Similarly, the use of Metallic Artefact Reduction (MAR) technique reduces artefacts and improves diagnostic quality when imaging patients with metallic implants.

eXP is available on the new G-Scan Brio and in the future could also be applied to other new systems or as an upgrade to existing systems, helping to protect investment and prolonging the useful life of existing installations.
