PENTAX Medical Company, a healthcare industry leader in endoscopic imaging, recently announced the release of the HI VISION™ Preirus™ ultrasound scanner. PENTAX Medical, in collaboration with Hitachi-Aloka, has had a rich history of introducing ultrasound scanners to the gastroenterology and pulmonary markets that present new possibilities in imaging capabilities. The new, state-of-the-art HI VISION™ Preirus will continue this tradition, enabling better patient care.
“The new HI VISION™ Preirus™ scanner brings improved accuracy and efficiency to my EUS practice. The enhanced imaging capabilities of this state-of-the-art scanner help me to deliver great patient care by enabling me to attain fast, precise and reproducible images of lesions using several modalities,” said Sandeep Patel, MD, Assistant Professor of Medicine, Director of Pancreaticobiliary Endoscopy, Christus Santa Rosa Hospital.
The HI VISION™ Preirus™ is the next generation premium ultrasound system from Hitachi, designed to easily and efficiently address all of the challenges physicians face in ultrasound imaging. The new system delivers performance, speed and potential to increase diagnostic accuracy unlike conventional ultrasound systems, blending the outstanding contrast and detail resolution of Hi-Compounding with the tissue density/hardness imaging capabilities of Sonoelastography. The super-computer speeds of the HI VISION™ Preirus™ improve resolution, delineation, and depth of imaging, while reducing noise, to provide optical and ultrasonic visualization and potentially increase detection of abnormalities and provide endoscopic therapeutic access to the upper gastrointestinal tract. In addition to its great imaging capabilities, the HI VISION™ Preirus™ is also engineered with the limitations of small procedure rooms in mind, featuring an award-winning ergonomic design.
