A tecnologia do Ultrasound está começando updates across-the-board

“Just the possibility that you can get the same kind of resolution with ultrasound without the contrast is something we’re really, really excited about,” Hasegawa says. “Early investigators have validated that excitement.”

Meanwhile, in the cardiology sector, there’s been a lot of attention surrounding quantifying wall motion, or motion of heart muscle, and Hasegawa says that the company is working with some of the leading cancer centers to research the effects of chemotherapy on the heart. Oncologists have long recognized that too much chemotherapy can lead to heart failure, which is asymptomatic.

Numed, a well established company in business since 1975 provides a wide range of service options including time & material service, PM only contracts, full service contracts, labor only contracts & system relocation. Call 800 96 Numed for more info.


“Having this system give you a number that is associated with how well the heart is contracting has been shown to be a very good leading indicator,” Hasegawa says. “It’s so practical and so compelling that I think some of these more advance cancer centers are starting to bring it in.”

More MSK advancement?
Last year, Siemens began shipping its ACUSON Freestyle system, an ultrasound system that features wireless transducers. Siemens is the first company to introduce a system with cable-free transducers, and while it has many uses in interventional radiology, as well as critical care, cath lab, or emergency care, it is particularly useful in the musculoskeletal market, Bundy says.

Moreau has been working with a colleague, Dr. Dustin Nabhan, on some areas of exploration for ultrasound. While traditionally the primary application is for imaging soft tissue, they recently published a case study in which they used ultrasound to examine the osteochondral surface. They are also exploring ultrasound for the differential diagnosis of hip and groin pain.

“We hope the things that we do will help the people on Main Street,” Moreau says. Moreau says that in the future he sees technology that will fuse ultrasound images with X-ray.

“The opportunity to couple images to multiply the effect of the information that you’re trying to obtain, I think that that’s right around the corner,” Moreau says.
