It is often said that one can never have too much of a good thing. And this was particularly true for the Decatur Vein Clinic when it decided to expand the number of its ultrasound systems.

The Greenwood, Indiana-based provider of chronic venous insufficiency healthcare services recently installed 11 additional ZONARE Medical Systems in its clinics in Indiana, Michigan, and Colorado, bringing to 24 the total number of ultrasound systems installed in Decatur Vein Clinic facilities.

The choice to turn once again to ZONARE had to do with both the’s flexibility and image quality, according to Claudia Benge, RVS, RVT, RHhS, FSVU, Decatur’s ultrasound director, in a company press release. “We are able to use our new ultrasound systems in two configurations—either as a full-featured, cart-based system or converted to a small, five-and-a-half-pound laptop-sized system, which is extremely helpful,” she said. “The images are so clear and crisp that the examination images appear in high definition like the new flat-screened televisions. We are able to see very small blood vessel with great detail and accuracy. This system allows us to formulate an individual clinical treatment plan that will benefit our patients and improve their daily life.”

The ultrasound system is a Convertible Ultrasound platform based on the company’s Zone Sonography technology. As a result, demanding clinical studies can be done in variety of clinical settings with high diagnostic confidence. The system’s software architecture is designed to be updated for improved performance. These updates can be downloaded from the Internet.
