Ultrasound Series RSS
GE originally was renown for their ultrasound machines that specialized in general imaging and radiology. As competition mounted, and other manufacturers began competing with GE in the ultrasound market, GE began to invest in creating various ultrasound series’, each one specializing in a particular type of imaging.
This particular article will focus on understanding specialized applications: transcranial doppler, elastography, and stress echo. These applications are very specific and refer to very a precise type of medical diagnosis procedure.
This blog article will explore ultrasound transducers that specialize in pediatric, neonatal and fetal patients – how they work, what type of probes are best suited for these particular patients, and some of A.M.E.’s top recommended ultrasound machines.
Musculoskeletal ultrasound is using high frequency ultrasound waves to diagnose and examine muscle tissue for sprains, tears and other potential damage. Intraoperative ultrasound application is the employment of ultrasound technology during surgery.
There is no actual application called “Women’s Health”, like there is a “Cardiac” or “Abdominal” application. Rather, the term is used to describe a variety of applications that all fall categorically under this name. These applications include Abdominal, OB-GYN (Obstetrics and Gynecology), Urological, Vaginal and Breast.
Cardiac ultrasound application is used to examine patients’ heart, heart structure, blood flow, and more. Vascular ultrasound applications are used to examine veins, blood flow and arteries in any part of our bodies; arms, legs, heart or throat are just a few parts that can be inspected.
Our previous two blog posts focused in on Philips and GE used ultrasound machines, and keeping up with our theme of examining some of the most popular and advanced ultrasound machines available, this article will focus in on two of Samsung’s popular ultrasound machines.
This article, part two in this series, will elaborate on two of GE’s popular used portable ultrasound machines; the Voluson i and the Vivid i. We look forward to providing you with all the information that you – diagnostician, patient, engineer, or anybody else – need to know.
Philips has been committed to healthcare for the last century. One of the top ultrasound manufacturers in the world, Philips has continued along the path of quality, affordable, cutting-edge and creative ultrasound technology since their first day in the game.
Many times, when trying to figure out how ultrasound applications work and what they mean, we tend to get a little confused. Is abdominal ultrasound under the same catagory as OB-GYN? Does my ultrasound machine need to be able to have a separate option for “Thyroid” application, or does it fall under a different application category? Read this post to find out!
