A new tablet-sized ultrasound system demonstrates that prevention, diagnosis, and productivity can all be integrated in a flexible and compact ultrasound system that also includes advanced technologies for vascular care.

“In addition to traditional CVD risk parameters, such as cholesterol and blood pressure values, also intima media thickness [IMT] and arterial stiffness [AS] values are very useful to understand arteriosclerosis, its severity and progression,” said Prof. Pierre Boutouyrie, from the department of pharmacology, European Hospital Georges Pompidou (Paris, France). “An accurate management of cardiovascular disease at an early stage provides advantages in the definition of an efficient diagnostic and treatment plan.”

MyLabOne Vascular, developed by Esaote (Genoa, Italy), is the first tablet-size ultrasound focused on vascular are that provides a simple and user-friendly interface based on full touch-screen display, interchangeable probes, a long-life battery, internal archive, and wireless connectivity for data sharing. In addition to high quality standard B-mode, color, and Doppler capabilities, the system includes exclusive technology to measure intima media thickness (IMT) and arterial stiffness (AS) on the basis of radiofrequency signal analysis.

“In the design of MyLabOne Vascular, we wanted to provide something special to all physicians who are involved in and committed to preventive medicine,” said Joop Geijsen, project manager at Esaote. “That’s why we did our best to integrate such an innovative technological package in an easy to use and compact system.”
