Soundwaves Expands Portable Ultrasound Technology Operations to Cardiology

Company’s mobile medical technology increases efficiency, accuracy and cost savings for doctors’ offices

May 15, 2017 — Soundwaves LLC recently announced the diversification of its portable ultrasound services beyond obstetrics and gynecology to other medical disciplines, including cardiology, and the expansion of its operations from South Florida to the Mid-Atlantic. 

Soundwaves Founder and CEO Denise Barbato said the company has seen high demand growth for portable ultrasound technology from orthopedic surgeons, urologists cardiologists and family practice physicians, prompting the expansion.

 “Soundwaves is a high quality, in-office ultrasound service that we recommend to our doctors to improve patient care as well as to generate revenue for their office,” said Nathan Hirsch, M.D., president of Femwell Group Health, a multi-specialty group practice with over 180 offices throughout Florida.

Thanks to technology allowing computing and imaging to become physically smaller while increasing dramatically in image resolution and quality, what used to require a linebacker-sized cart now fits in a briefcase and delivers more detailed, accurate results than ever before, according to the company. Whereas hospitals might resist letting go of old investments in legacy ultrasound equipment, Soundwaves used the most advanced portable solutions with the latest in digital beamform signal processing, ultra-wide aperture transmission/reception and tissue harmonic imaging. Accurate diagnoses require accurate data.

For doctors in private offices, Soundwaves removes the hassle of knowing which ultrasound machine to select and worrying over equipment failures. The company carries the equipment service contracts and handles all servicing needs. Doctors never have to worry about hiring or paying a qualified sonographer, and Soundwaves stores all images and reports on a HIPAA-compliant cloud server that doctors can securely access online from anywhere at any time.

Soundwaves makes sure to use and train its technologists on the latest generation of ultrasound technology, enabling capabilities such as 3-D transvaginal sonography (TVS). The company said this relatively new technique provides superior insight into certain pelvic structures impossible to capture with legacy 2-D imaging, such as uterine morphology and congenital uterine anomalies, location of fibroids in relation to the endometrium, endometrial polyps and confirming the location of an IUD (intrauterine device). Three-dimensional TVS is increasingly becoming the first action step for diagnosis, rather than invasive procedures such as hysteroscopy or laparoscopy, or a far costlier magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exam. Many organizations lack the ability to perform 3-D TVS in-house, and they are even more likely lacking the expertise to accurately assess and communicate the results of that imaging.
