TOKYO, May 29 /PRNewswire/ -- ALOKA announced today new compact ProSound ultrasound Systems which will be unveiled at the 20th Congress of European Federation of Societies for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology, 31st of May to 3rd of June 2008, in Timisoara, Romania. The ProSound 2 is a portable diagnostic ultrasound system, providing excellent image quality with comprehensive functions. High image quality technologies developed for the premium models of the ProSound series are incorporated into the system to support accurate diagnosis, such as Extended Pure Harmonic Detection (ExPHD), Multi Frequency Imaging (MFI) and Edge Enhance Function.

Extended Pure Harmonic Detection (ExPHD), Tissue Harmonic Echo by phase- modulation method is in the standard specification. The system offers images of high accuracy by reducing unnecessary echoes without sacrificing sensitivity.

Multi Frequency Imaging (MFI) -- A single probe can provide multiple transmission frequencies that can be selected according to the physique of the patient.

Edge Enhancement Function -- Edges of tissues such as intimae of the carotid artery are emphasized to facilitate IMT measurement for an index of determining atherosclerosis.

Users can store, review and manage data efficiently in a digital environment.

Ultrasound images, measurement results, patient information and reports are stored and managed in the large-capacity built-in memory. USB memory port is equipped as a standard item ensuring efficient digital data management. Built-in Cine Memory allows the user to examine images easily using the search function.

Another key benefit of the new ProSound 2 compact system is improved workflow and exam efficiency with rapid startup and dedicated probes. The system boots up quickly for emergency use. Optimum imaging settings for respective applications can be switched at the touch of a button using the preset function. Selections of probes covering a wide range of applications from routine examinations to intra-operative abdominal imaging, for example, are available on this compact unit. The large handle provided on the compact body makes the unit easy to carry.
