Sonoscanner Earns Top Honours from Frost & Sullivan for its Portable, High-performance Ultrasound Device, U-Lite

SOURCE Frost & Sullivan

With its intuitive design and innovative features, U-Lite provides superior image performance and a wider range of clinical applications than its peers

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., June 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Based on recent analysis of the hand-held ultrasound equipment market, Frost & Sullivan recognises Sonoscanner as the recipient of the 2015 European New Product Innovation Award. Sonoscanner’s U-Lite ultrasound device is one of the first premium hand-held HD ultrasound systems to be commercially available in Europe. The device’s host of benefits include pocket-size technology, 10-second boot time, and HD images of internal organs and their vascularization with multi-frequency electronic probes.

U-Lite presents outstanding value to customers through its portability, unrivalled ease of use, and high-quality images as well as rapid acquisition and image reporting. These competitive features and functionalities make the device ideal for focused ob/gyn, vascular, abdomen, anaesthesia, and cardiology ultrasound assessments.

“By improving the quality of care and reducing the need to perform unnecessary examinations, U-Lite makes healthcare delivery more efficient and affordable than before,” said Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Srikanth Kompalli. “U-Lite has all the advantages of ultrasound scanners, such as colour Doppler, PW Doppler for blood flow quantification, tissue harmonic imaging for high-definition in obstetric applications, and compound imaging for nerve and tendon tracking.”

Significantly, Sonoscanner makes good on its promise to provide an application for every speciality by offering personalized solutions, unprecedented workflow integration, a standardized protocol, integration of the Sonoscanner ecosystem, and optimization of all system parameters. In short, Sonoscanner’s U-Lite device allows customers to perform a range of focused examinations, anywhere, any time.

Addressing the key challenges in point-of-care ultrasound applications, Sonoscanner delivers specialized transducers designed to operate in tight spaces and provide access to all 3 areas of use: nomad (e.g., emergency and ambulatory medicine), semi-nomad (e.g., doctor’s clinic), and sedentary (e.g., hospital).

Furthermore, U-Lite’s eco-conception makes it the least energy-consuming ultrasound device that can generate high-resolution images. The device’s substantial battery capacity enables physicians to scan for longer durations on a single charge.

“U-Lite is the first compact, portable HD ultrasound device with an advanced diagnostic tool, presenting a top-class customer experience,” noted Kompalli. “Overall, no diagnostic system boasts HD quality images, speed, small footprint, and simplicity on the scale that U-Lite does.”
