Zonare Introduces New Z.One Ultrasound System

Next generation ultrasound developer enables high performance imaging at value pricing

August 6, 2014 — Zonare announced the introduction of its Z.One Pro ultrasound system to worldwide markets. The new system is designed to provide an economical, high performance imaging system for a wide variety of applications. The Z.One Pro recently received U.D. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510k clearance.

“The most recent addition to our product line will provide very high image quality without the price tag normally associated with such quality,” said Glen Mclaughlin, president and CTO for Zonare. “The Living Technology behind the system supports ongoing updates and upgrades further increasing this value proposition.”

The Z.One Pro, like all Zonare products, is based on proprietary Zone Sonography Technology (ZST). Unlike conventional beamformer, line-by-line imaging, ZST uses software-driven, large zone acquisitions, rendering an entirely new and different approach to ultrasound data acquisition and image formation. The result is more imaging detail with consistent, superb resolution and uniform imaging at depth from the smallest to the largest of patients throughout the field of view.

As an affordable high performance system, the Z.One Pro offers stellar image quality as a durable, small footprint unit. The one-touch easy image optimization and customizable capabilities are part of an intuitive user interface, supporting a seamless workflow. The high-speed boot-up, optional battery pack and wireless features allow for easy transport when needed.

“This new system provides significant imaging capabilities at a very reasonable cost,” said Christopher Raio, M.D., MBA, senior member, American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM). “It is exciting to have a system in this price range which offers this high of performance level. The versatility, size and ease-of-use make this an ideal system for a wide variety of imaging needs across all applications.”

A 3-D ultrasound system provides an effective, noninvasive way to estimate blood flow that retains its accuracy across different equipment, operators and facilities, according to a study published in the journal Radiology.

Volume flow as a function of color flow gain (at a single testing site). For each row the color flow c-plane and the computed volume flow are shown as a function of color flow gain. The c-plane is shown for four representative gain levels, whereas the computed volume flow is shown for 12–17 steps across the available gain settings. Flow was computed with (solid circles on the graphs) and without (hollow circles on the graphs) partial volume correction. Partial volume correction accounts for pixels that are only partially inside the lumen. Therefore, high gain (ie, blooming) does not result in overestimation of flow. Systems 1 and 2 converge to true flow after the lumen is filled with color pixel. System 3 is nearly constant regarding gain and underestimates the flow by approximately 17%. Shown are mean flow estimated from 20 volumes, and the error bars show standard deviation. Image courtesy of the journal Radiology
