Carestream Touch Ultrasound System - 3Carestream recently showcased its new CARESTREAM Touch Ultrasound System, which is set to offer an improved user experience and enhanced image quality to meet the needs of even the most demanding radiologists and sonographers. The new system, which is pending 510(k) clearance, was demonstrated at the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine conference in Orlando.

With a single-board system design, the platform delivers a unique all-touch control panel, integrated GPU processing power, and smart transducer technology. The reliable product includes advanced imaging capabilities, a compact footprint and a modern user interface. Etched marking for primary controls enables the user to locate key functions easily without looking away from the image display monitor.

“Our new ultrasound platform was developed based on very specific input from sonographers and other ultrasound imaging professionals who use these systems on a daily basis,” said Andrew J. Harmann, general manager, global X-ray solutions. “This feedback enabled us to identify user needs that were not adequately addressed by existing ultrasound systems and helped us create a powerful platform for ultrasound imaging.”

The system also features a sealed panel, high-level computing power, a “swipe and go” badge log-on, “smart connect” transducer technology, easy cart adjustments, and a cold boot time of 18 seconds, with no need for standby mode or battery backup.

Carestream plans to extend the Touch Ultrasound system’s unique technologies and features across a family of Carestream ultrasound products that addresses the needs of various users and markets throughout the world.

The first two products in the Touch Ultrasound family are expected to ship in the third quarter of 2015.
