December 28, 2011 — Mindray Medical introduced the DC-T6 ultrasound system at the 2011 Radiological Society of North America meeting. The device features a high-resolution, 15-inch TFT monitor as well as a swivel and height-adjustable control panel. Its embedded battery, iPower, provides up to two hours of interruptible scanning when AC power is not available. Octal beam formation technology strikes a balance between temporal and spatial resolution, while the iClear speckle reduction technology improves contrast resolution without compromising spatial resolution. The system offers real-time 4-D and panoramic imaging.
Additional features include Tissue Doppler imaging (TDI) with quantitative analysis, automatic M-Mode, improved cystic clarity and better signal-to-noise ratio. The DC-T6 also offers fast and efficient storage, review and management of image data using the iStation technology.
The DC-7 Ultrasound Enhancements
The company will also be showcasing enhancements for its DC-7 ultrasound system. These include an iPage 3-D volume data series, a 3-D/4-D spatial-cutting tool and a volume scan application for the fetal heart. In addition, the new CB10-4a micro-convex array and simultaneous bi-plane endocavity transducer for the DC-7 system will be introduced at the show.
The M7 Ultrasound Enhancements
The company will be demonstrating iNeedle on the M7 compact ultrasound platform, a new technology that allows for clear and precise needle detection. It is designed for use during interventional and vascular access procedures. The iZoom software enables users to view patient anatomy more accurately from a distance; the iTouch feature allows a user to optimize an image with a single touch of a button. Combining these features helps physicians visualize target structures more clearly and easily, thereby improving patient safety by reducing the rate of procedural failures and complications.
