GE HealthCare has rolled out the new handheld, wireless ultrasound imaging system, Vscan Air SL, for rapid assessments of cardiac and vascular patients.
Part of the Vscan product suite, the new system features SignalMax and XDclear technology, facilitating better resolution, penetration, and sensitivity in imaging performance using single-crystal transducer technology.
Clinicians can use the system for viewing clear cardiac and vascular images at the point of care. It also helps them streamline workflows and eliminate overloading traditional radiology resources.
With Vscan Air + Digital Tools, healthcare professionals can utilise subscriptions that link them to a range of user-friendly solutions intended to enhance workflow.
GE HealthCare Point Of Care and Handheld Ultrasound global general manager Dietmar Seifriedsberger said: “Vscan Air SL enables clinicians to make quick cardiac assessments and adds to our broad portfolio of ultrasound technologies to help further inform clinical decision making at the point of care.
“This newest innovation demonstrates our commitment to providing integrated solutions resulting in better standard of care delivery — and ultimately helping clinicians improve patient outcomes.”
The Vscan Air SL is presently available for purchase in countries across Europe, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.
In the US, the device has received 510(k) clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration. It is set to be released for commercial use in the current quarter.
