SonoSite M-Turbo wins praise from UK hospital

26th May 2011

SonoSite's M-Turbo point-of-care ultrasound system has won a recommendation from the Royal Brompton Hospital in London.

The medical facility, which is home to the country's largest specialist heart and lung centre, has been using the SonoSite device to conduct emergency-focused transthoracic echocardiography and has experienced numerous benefits.

Dr Susanna Price, consultant cardiologist and intensivist, praised the M-Turbo for its fast boot-up time and versatile functionality, with the unit providing both a cardiac package and a vascular probe.

She noted that its portable nature has allowed it to be applied to patients from other units where ultrasound equipment is unavailable, while its ability to record image clips makes it easy to create diagnosis records.

"The system is very good for training junior ICU doctors who are just starting to use focused echocardiography," Dr Price added.

Last month, SonoSite published its financial report for the first quarter of 2011, during which it exceeded its guidance for the fifth consecutive quarter.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-800558039-ADNFCR
