New z.one Ultra System Features Advanced Software, Hardware and Transducer Technology

November 29, 2007 – Zonare Medical Systems showcased its new z.one ultra system, the company’s next generation convertible ultrasound platform, at the 2007 Radiology Society of North America conference (RSNA) this week in Chicago.

Based on Zone Sonography technology, the z.one ultra system features advanced software, hardware and transducer technology, including a new multi-transducer port (MTP) and multi transducer connector for the z.one scan engine.

“Earlier this year, we completed a major facility expansion which required us to provide ultrasound imaging throughout the center,” said Jana Anguis, ultrasound supervisor, Memorial Medical Center of Modesto, CA. “With the z.one system’s premium compact design, we were able to replace our heavy, bulky conventional unit without compromising image quality. The system also allows us to convert to completely portable exams which can especially be important in locations where mobility is an issue for the patient such as the ICU.”

Clinicians are able to convert the z.one system, at the touch of a button, from a full-featured, cart-based system into a compact, 5.5 pound, hand-carried ultrasound system.

The z.one system’s Zone Sonography software-based architecture allows its performance to continue to improve as greater processing power becomes available. System upgrades can be downloaded via the internet.

Zonare showcased two transducers that are being developed, including a new high frequency, 14-5 MHz linear array transducer featuring a wide field of view. With an aperture of 55mm, the L14-5 transducer also offers virtual apex capability. The new transducer has 10 frequencies including three fundamental, one tissue harmonic, two compound imaging and two each for color Doppler and PW Doppler modes. The L14-5 is especially useful for imaging breasts, small parts and superficial peripheral vascular.

Also being introduced this year is the C9-3 curved array transducer, which is designed for high frequency obstetrical and pediatric imaging.
