SonoSite Edge Ultrasound System is a patient-ready ultrasound for rent and sale from US Med-Equip.
The SonoSite Edge high-resolution ultrasound system, available from US Med-Equip, is a portable, full-featured, general purpose, software controlled, diagnostic system that uses all digital architecture. The system is used to display real time high definition data in 2-D, M Mode, Pulsed Wave Doppler (PW), Continuous Wave Doppler (CW), Color Power Doppler (CPD), and Color Doppler (Color), all modes with the ability to be combined with one another.
The system has an electrocardiography (ECG) display feature and supports a 3-lead ECG cable assembly to collect data for M Mode and Doppler measurements. The system provides measurements capabilities for anatomical structures and fetal biometry that provide information used for clinical diagnostic purposes. The system has a PW and CW Doppler audio output feature, cine review, image zoom, labeling, biopsy, measurements and calculations, image storage and review printing, and recording capabilities.
The system includes the optional ability to measure the intima-media thickness (IMT) of the carotid artery using digital ultrasound images. The IMT measurement of the carotid artery may be used adjunctively with other medical data obtained by a physician to help assess the cardiovascular health of a patient.
The system includes optional Digital Imaging and Communications (DICOM) capabilities as well as general computer communication capabilities to provide the acceptance, transfer, display, storage, and digital processing of ultrasound images and loops. Security support is also provided to facilitate HIPAA compliance.
The system/transducer is capable of exceeding a TI or an MI of 1.0 in certain operating modes or mode combinations. The system displays the current output level in terms of one of two bioeffects indices (“Mechanical Index [MI]” and “Thermal Index [TI]”) in accordance with the AIUM/NEMA standard for real time display of Thermal and Mechanical Acoustic Output Indices on Diagnostic Ultrasound Equipment.
