Zonare - Ultrasound

ZONARE Medical Systems Inc. highlighted at RSNA 2009 the release of new advanced software applications and transducers as well as new capabilities, such as contrast enhanced imaging studies, breast elastography and 3D imaging.

ZONARE’s z.one ultrasound system has a Convertible Ultrasound platform based on proprietary Zone Sonography technology. Clinicians are able to convert the z.one system from a full-featured, cart-based system into a premium compact ultrasound system without sacrificing image quality or performance.

ZONARE showed as a work-in-progress for contrast-enhanced ultrasound studies of the liver and heart. Using contrast-enhanced ultrasound with ZONARE’s new C4-1 Curved Array transducer can offer additional diagnostic information in liver lesion assessment by narrowing down the differential diagnosis, similar to contrast-enhanced CT of liver lesions.

In addition, contrast-enhanced ultrasound captures images of the heart’s left ventricle using the P4-1c cardiac transducer. This application helps the clinician visualize the left ventricular wall and endocardium in technically difficult patients by opacifying the left ventricle with contrast, making it easier to evaluate wall motion.

The C9-4t is a tightly curved, small footprint, high frequency transducer that is ideal for pediatric head and abdomen imaging. The field of view offers up to 134 degrees of imaging with 2D frequency choices from 9-4 MHz, enabling superb imaging of neonatal to larger infant body types.

The C4-1 transducer is a small footprint, curved array transducer designed by ZONARE’s acoustic engineers to improve access and imaging performance resulting in increased penetration (up to 30-cm) with sensitive Doppler imaging.

ZONARE is debuted its new solution for high-frequency, high-resolution imaging. The new L14-5w Linear Array transducer offers broad bandwidth for improved imaging of small parts, breasts and superficial anatomy. It has a 55-mm wide field-of-view.

The z.one ultrasound system now features new elastography applications for breast imaging that enable qualitative visual assessment of the mechanical stiffness properties of tissue. The elastography images are generated and visualized using a variety of grayscale and colorized maps and all ZONARE linear array transducers are supported.

3D ultrasound imaging capabilities are also available for the z.one ultra system with primary applications for obstetrical imaging during the second and third trimester. The new C8-33D curved linear transducer offers mechanical sweep array, 3D fetal surface rendering, 3D Multi Planar rendering and additional diagnostic tools. The new 3D imaging capabilities are also available for general abdominal ultrasound imaging.

An estimated 44 million people worldwide are currently living with Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of dementia. About 5.8 million people in the United States live with the disease, where it is the sixth leading cause of death overall. While there is not yet a cure for Alzheimer’s, researchers are working to find treatment options to delay its onset and prevent it from developing.
