March 10, 2015 — Hitachi Aloka Medical Ltd. announced the release of EggQus — a compact, portable ultrasound bone densitometry system — at the 2015 European Radiology Congress (ECR).

EggQus was created using the design concept of an "eggshell", a shape born in nature. The resulting system is strong, lightweight and easy to handle for maximum portability.

A large integrated handle facilitates in-hospital rounds and house visits.

The system is powered by rechargeable batteries. Continuous and convenient use can be sustained using the AC adapter accessory.

The motor-controlled transducer unit moves automatically, minimizing manipulation by the operator.

The short measurement time is convenient for elderly examinees and for screening that requires rapid handling.
