The Esaote Biosound MyLab 20 Plus ultrasound system is a stationary, entry level ultrasound unit. A shared service, general imaging system, this unit, like most other Esaote Biosound units, can be upgraded from it’s original settings to become a significantly more powerful system.
Despite being a black and white, basic ultrasound system (pre-upgrade of course), the MyLab 20 Plus is still capable of producing powerful images, and is compatible with the high quality AppleProbes that are employed by the MyLab 40 and MyLab 50 ultrasound systems. With four ultrasound ports, it is easy and convenient for diagnosticians to transfer back and forth between probes and project images of various applications.
Some of the technological features of the MyLab 20 Plus are important to take into consideration when considering this unit. TEI (tissue enhancement imaging), NT (Nuchal Thickness – measuring liquid behind the neck of a fetus), Auto Image Enhancement and TP (similar to compounding imaging) are all available with this system. These tools were engineered to provide the best possible imaging – despite this unit being an economical entry level system.
Once upgraded, this system is also capable of projecting 3D/4D (live 3D) ultrasound images. Most diagnosticians practice 4D imaging for cardiac and OB-GYN applications – something that the MyLab 20 Plus can do quite handily.
