The Intelect® TranSport Ultrasound unit provides medical ultrasound imaging functionality using 1 and 3.3 MHz frequencies. You can use this unit for to medically image tendons, muscles, blood vessels, joints and internal organs. These units are typically used to gain a better understanding of the cause of diseases or injuries. You can also use them to exclude possible causes of diseases or injuries.
The advantages of this approach to medical imaging include:
- The units are portable and can be easily carried by hand. This is particularly useful when treating bedridden patients, as it is easier to take the unit to the patient than the other way around;
- Ultrasound units produce images in real time. By contrast, other technologies (e.g. MRI scans) require lengthy and expensive analysis before the results are ready;
- The cost of ultrasound technology is significantly lower than that of other medical imaging technologies;
- There are no harmful side effects (such as with X Ray technology, for example).
You can operate the Intelect® TranSport Ultrasound in both pulsed and continuous modes (10%, 20%, 50% and 100%).
