Pocket-Sized Ultrasound Device Designed for Point-of-Care Imaging
A small pocket-sized ultrasound system provide physicians with imaging capabilities at the point-of-care. GE Healthcare's Vscan is roughly the size of a smart phone and is designed to help physicians make treatment decisions more quickly.
Vscan offers the image quality that until recently was only available with a console ultrasound. Vscan leverages GE’s high-quality black and white image technology and color-coded blood flow imaging in a device that fits into a pocket and weighs less than one pound at 3 inches wide and 5.3 inches long. Other features include an online portal with training tools for the product and basic clinical applications; an intuitive user interface that can be controlled using the thumb; workflow enhancements; battery charger station and a battery life for one hour of scanning, voice annotation; USB docking station; link to a PC for organization and export of data; and Gateway software with services tools and remote diagnostics.
The Vscan is a prescription device for ultrasound imaging, measurement and analysis in the clinical applications of abdominal; cardiac (adult and pediatric); urological, fetal/OB; pediatric; and thoracic/pleural motion and fluid detection, as well as for patient examination in primary care and in special care areas.
