SonoSite Introduces New Turbo Technology for S Series

February 3, 2009 - SonoSite Inc. said its new SonoGT Global Target technology is now available on its mountable S Series ultrasound tools.

The new performance platform delivers enhanced color flow sensitivity, wireless connectivity, including a remote control for hands-free system control and workflow integration for multiple point-of-care application markets.

First introduced for SonoSite’s M-Turbo systems in October 2008, SonoSite now brings the SonoGT engine to reportedly effectively transform the S Series product line into the S-Turbo Series. SonoSite plans to begin customer shipments of the new S Series systems with SonoGT technology in February. Customers can separately purchase SonoGT technology and upgrade existing S Series systems via an easy software download from a USB thumb drive.

The SonoGT technology platform adds the following capabilities to the S Series product line:

ColorHD Technology – A proprietary, color Doppler algorithm that harnesses the power of the S Series system’s digital signal processor to increase color, sensitivity and frame rates.

SonoRemote Control – A new tool enabled by the SonoGT technology platform untethers the clinician from the ultrasound system during procedures to increase ergonomic comfort to perform more easily in sterile field procedures

SonoRoam Technology – Using 802.11b/g technology, SonoRoam technology enables wireless image transfer from the S Series system to a PACS system via DICOM and to a personal computer via SonoSite’s SiteLink so that clinicians can quickly retrieve the information from any location.

Patient Management – Patient demographics can now be entered before, during or after the exam. This reportedly allows flexibility in getting the procedure completed in time-critical situations where documentation is secondary to that of the procedure itself.

New USB Bar Code Reader – This accessory allows clinicians to quickly and accurately enter patient information and update exam information prior to its entry into the patient record. SonoSite’s bar code reader is powered through a USB port thereby freeing AC power for another device.

C11x/8-5 MHz – a new addition to both the S-Nerve and S-ICU systems for neonatal and abdominal exams and includes vascular settings.

L25x/13-6 MHz – offers an ophthalmic exam setting for the S-FAST tool for the evaluation of globe rupture, intraocular foreign bodies, and retinal detachment.

SLAx/13-6MHz – is now configured with the S-MSK and S-Nerve systems for nerve and vascular scanning applications.
