Hitachi Aloka Introduce Primary Care Ultrasound System

February 9, 2012 – Hitachi Aloka Medical Ltd. announced the release of a new digital diagnostic ultrasound system, F37. F37 was developed focusing on contributing to primary care, such as in clinics and examination institutions. The new, compact product aims to expand sales boundaries in developing countries and to pioneer new users of diagnostic ultrasound.

F37 is as compact as 43 cm wide and 58 cm deep, able to fit in tight office space. On the side of the system there is a side pocket that can hold probe and electrocardiogram (ECG) cables or foot switches, allowing easy storing of small items. Moreover, safe and smooth mobility of the system is enabled on account of its light weight of 65 kg, the easy-to-hold hand grips on the back of the system, and large wheels.

The layout of the operation panel was designed so that even first-time users can naturally operate the system. The freely customizable operation panel offers a more simple and comfortable examination environment, leading to higher efficiency.

Care was taken also for ergonomic usability. Examinations can be performed in a natural posture, reducing burden on the examiner. In addition, a large-capacity HD display was adopted for keeping record of everyday exam information.

Broadband harmonics attain both high sensitivity and resolution, delivering images with minimal artifacts. Functions inherited from higher-class models such as adaptive image processing (AIP) and spatial compound imaging (SCI) support acquiring optimum images of the exam target. Furthermore, image optimizer allows for concentrated examinations by simplifying image adjustments.

The F37 will be available for delivery in February 2012.
