Memorial Medical First in Stanislaus County to Provide Convertible Ultrasound From ZONARE

Zone Sonography Technology Allows Premium Compact Ultrasound Imaging at

Area's Leading Healthcare Provider

MODESTO, Calif., Sept. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Memorial Medical Center, a leading regional healthcare provider and member of Sutter Health, today announced it has installed two ultrasound systems from ZONARE Medical Systems, a developer of premium ultrasound technology, in the Center's radiology department. Based on proprietary Zone Sonography technology, the ultra system is a unique premium Convertible Ultrasound platform which allows clinicians to perform ultrasound anywhere in the hospital. Memorial Medical is using the ultra systems in the neonatal unit, emergency room and the vascular, radiology and obstetrical departments.

"We have just completed a major facility expansion which requires us to provide ultrasound imaging throughout the Center," said Jana Anguis, ultrasound supervisor, Memorial Medical Center. "With the ultrasound system's premium compact design, we were able to replace our heavy, bulky conventional unit without compromising image quality. The system also allows us to convert to completely portable exams which can especially be important in locations where mobility is an issue for the patient such as the ICU."

Zone Sonography technology has enabled ZONARE Medical Systems to bring its unique, patented Convertible Ultrasound platform to the industry providing premium image quality performance together with greater portability at an attractive price to value ratio. Clinicians are able to convert the ultrasound system from a full-featured, cart-based system into a premium compact ultrasound system at the touch of a button, optimizing its versatility in a variety of clinical settings, without sacrificing image quality or performance.

"We bought five different transducers for both systems which gives us the flexibility to address a number of clinical applications," said Anguis. "Additionally, since all of our imaging departments have converted completely to digital PACS for ultrasound, it was critical to have an ultrasound system that would readily be compatible to our PACS. The ultrasound system easily met this need."

The ultrasound system's Zone Sonography software-based architecture allows its performance to continue to improve as greater processing power becomes available. System upgrades can be downloaded via the internet, allowing for fast, convenient advances in clinical capabilities, enabling clinicians to cost-effectively maintain a state of the art ultrasound system. Upgradeability to anticipated future clinical applications, such as echocardiography, was also an important consideration to Memorial in selecting the ultrasound system.

Throughout its history, Memorial has grown along with the community and recently completed an expansion to 600 beds. Memorial's mission is to maintain and improve the health status of the citizens of greater Stanislaus County, located in the San Joaquin Valley in central California. To this end, Memorial has added additional services, such as three adult intensive care units, where the ultrasound systems are frequently used. Memorial is affiliated with Sutter Health, one of the nation's leading non-profit networks of community health services. ZONARE is under contract with Sutter Health to provide its Convertible Ultrasound platforms to Sutter affiliates.

"Memorial has been known for years as a healthcare provider that strives for excellence in patient care," said Donald Southard, president and CEO for ZONARE. "We are pleased to be a part of Memorial's team of healthcare professionals and Sutter Health."
