October 25, 2016 — In conjunction with the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) meeting in Chicago, Mindray announced the introduction of its new L20-5s ultra-high frequency linear transducer with enhanced iNeedle visualization technology. The new transducer is compatible with the TE7 Touch Enabled Ultrasound System, designed specifically for the point-of-care (POC) imaging environment. The TE7 offers intuitive tablet-like operation, superior image quality with one-touch image optimization, and exam presets to improve both diagnostic confidence and efficiency.
According to Mindray Chief Product Officer Glen McLaughlin, Ph.D., the L20-5s transducer combined with the iNeedle technology is particularly useful in anesthesia POC to provide increased visualization in the area of interest and enhanced needle detection. This can assist in reducing stress on the patient and help reduce procedure time.
Unlike many POC systems, the TE7 has no keyboard, streamlining clinical workflow with intuitive gestures. The system features up to three active transducer connectors, slim profile ergonomic cart and a rich set of applications including cardiac functionality with continuous wave (CW) Doppler and a transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) transducer.
