Echo Blaster 64 family scanners and kits

 

Echo Blaster 64 is new line in the family of beamformers which can be connected to any modern personal computer via USB 2.0 interface. Unlike previous Echo Blaster, new devices has advanced software scan-converter, capable to process up to 120 frames per second. User interface built on Echo Wave II  software provide new capabilities which earlier was not achievable for entry–level systems:

  • extended measurement package includes cardiology, urology, Ob/Gyn and special veterinary calculation

  • movie clips as long as 2 minutes can be recorded and stored in the files

  • new wide-bandwidth transducers for any application

  • speckle reduction structure improvement PureView

  • possibility to work with 3DView and PanoView plug-in modules adds new diagnostic value*

  • Ready-to-Telemedicine concept allow remote diagnostic

  • Multiline technology for scanning without “black dots” artifacts provides noticeable improvement of image quality

  • attractive price

* optional component
