First tablet-size ultrasound system dedicated to vascular care

The first tablet-size ultrasound system dedicated to vascular care (MyLab™One, Esaote) has been released, featuring a touch-screen display, interchangeable probes, and wireless connectivity.

As well as standard B-mode, color and doppler it includes technology to measure intima media thickness (IMT) and arterial stiffness (AS) on the basis of radiofrequency signal analysis.

“In addition to traditional CVD risk parameters, such as cholesterol and blood pressure values, also IMT and AS values are very useful to understand arteriosclerosis, its severity and progression,” said Professor Pierre Boutouyrie (Department of Pharmacology, European Hospital Georges Pompidou, Paris, France) on behalf of the manufacturers. “An accurate management of CVD at an early stage, provides advantages in the definition of an efficient diagnostic and treatment plan”.

The device was showcased recently at the EuroPRevent Congress on 18–20th April in Rome.
