New Ultrasound Designed for Musculoskeletal Imaging

SonoSite Inc. recently released one of the first ultrasounds designed for musculoskeletal specialist.

The S-MSK was made for usage by rheumatologists, physiatrists, sports physicians, orthopedic and osteopathic surgeons and physical therapists, said the company.

Based on SonoSite’s fourth generation M-Turbo platform, the S-MSK ultrasound tool reportedly delivers an increase in processing power for superior image clarity plus connectivity for digital image export. The ultrasound system is backed with a five-year warranty.

With the S-MSK ultrasound tool was designed to be either carried, mounted on a pole or fixed on a wall or ceiling.
Configured for use with SonoSite’s HFL38x and L25x broadband transducers, the S-MSK ultrasound tool aims to provide imaging of superficial and deep targets for a quick look assessment and guidance of interventional procedures such as injections and aspirations of the knee, shoulder, elbow and other joints in the body. On-board Flash memory of 4 GB will retain enough data for 20 standard exams even after the power is turned off, said the company. The system also has three USB slots.
