This entry level system encompasses state-of-the-art ultrasound technology, stellar imaging performance, and versatile applications at an exceptional cost of ownership. It brings physicians more opportunities to provide the finest patient care. The industrial design is conducive to today’s busy environments. The home base layout of controls and operator functions on the control panel supports the natural and extended reach of the user and greatly reduces keystrokes and repetitive movements. The 19” flat panel display with articulating arm, control panel height adjustment and side-to-side swivel allow for appropriate positioning and placement to accommodate tight and/or awkward scanning environments. In addition to a lightweight system, the QuikStart standby mode enhances system portability by reducing startup and shutdown times to approximately 30 seconds and 10 seconds respectively.
