Analogic to show ultrasound suite at EAU

Analogic is showcasing its ultrasound systems at the European Association of Urology (EAU) Congress in Milan, March 15 to 19. The suite includes BK Medical ultrasound systems, ultrasound systems from Ultrasonix and transducer technology from Sound Technology.

The BK Medical Flex Focus family of systems with Quantum Technology provides triplane imaging for lesion targeting during biopsies, and facilitates robotic-assisted surgery, according to Peabody, Mass.-based Analogic.

Analogic completed its acquisition of Ultrasonix Medical, an ultrasound systems company, in March. This follows the acquisition of transducer developer Sound Technology in 2002.

Analogic said it is highlighting Flex Focus 800, Flex Focus 500 and Ultraview 800 ultrasound systems that incorporate Quantum Technology, which provides gray scale maps and image pre-sets. In addition, its Vector Flow Imaging mode enables angle-independent visualization of blood flow, and it includes a color Doppler mode.

Analogic's BK Medical systems are geared for surgery, including robotic-assisted surgery, urology and general imaging. The Ultraview 800 system also has contrast imaging capabilities.

Ultrasonix has options that include SonixShine needle enhancement and elastography imaging for identifying tissue stiffness, and contrast imaging capabilities.
