According to the Schenzhen-based manufacturer SonoScape, this is ‘the first portable system that has a perfect combination of 4-D and echocardiography. Despite being a portable ultrasound system, S8’s performance can be matched with that of a regular high-end, cart-based, echo ultrasound system. The S8 has proved itself a reliable ultrasound system with outstanding performance, especially in cardiology fields. Also, this flagship HCU demonstrates its superiority as it offers abundant features, such as adult TEE, paediatric TEE, high frequency phased array, 15 MHz linear transducer, up to 512 HD transducers with frequency range from 1.9 to 15MHz, and so on. The high configuration of S8 enables the system even to meet the strictest requirements of cardiologists,’ SonoScape adds.
Integrated imaging technologies include micro-scan, multiple-beam processing, automatic flow volume analysis, and 4-D imaging technology.
F&S reports that the award reflects the outstanding achievements of S8 in the European ultrasound market. ‘The company’s priority is maintaining high levels of quality in its product lines,’ explained Krishanu Bhattacharjee, senior analyst at Frost & Sullivan.


SonoScape is at Medica
