Hitachi - New Ultrasound is Compact, User-Friendly

The Hi Vision Preirus ultrasound scanner, now available in the U.S., is the first ultrasound system to use cell processor technology and “Smart Touch” operation featuring a touch-screen integrated with the LCD display for increased scanning efficiency.

Preirus is complemented by a wide selection of transducers. Each probe is engineered with application-specific crystal array characteristics and architecture, from Hitachi’s V53W transvaginal probe with its slender design and 200 degree field-of-view to its 4-D volumetric imaging probes, both linear and curved, or its laparoscopic probe with a thin insertion shaft enabling the use of a 10 mm trochar.

The Preirus also supports advanced imaging with optional features of real-time tissue elastography, which applies the fundamental concept of palpation to ultrasound imaging, and real-time virtual sonography, which correlates MRI, CT or ultrasound volumes to a live ultrasound exam and displays them both side-by-side in real-time during scanning.
