VIENNA, March 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Mr Minoru Yoshizumi, President of Hitachi Aloka Medical Ltd., Tokyo, Japan, is pleased to announce the release of EggQus, an extraordinary compact, portable Ultrasound Bone Densitometry System at the European Radiology Congress (ECR). Delegates will have the opportunity to see and test EggQus at the Hitachi Medical Systems booth 323, Expo C.
A new approach has been used in the development of the bone densitometry system, EggQus. It has been created using the design concept of an "eggshell", a shape born in nature. Simply beautiful, strong, lightweight, easy to handle. All of these features guarantee maximum portability.
EggQus is light, compact and versatile compared to conventional ultrasound bone densitometry systems. The large integrated handle facilitates in-hospital rounds and house visits.
Rechargeable battery operation
The system is powered by rechargeable batteries enhancing its portability. Continuous and convenient use can be sustained using the AC adapter accessory.
The motor-controlled transducer unit moves automatically, minimizing manipulation by the operator.
Measurement in approximately three seconds
The short measurement time is convenient for elderly examinees and for screening that requires rapid handling.
EggQus is available for delivery from March 2015 (Shipment time may vary depending on regulation and registration of the country).
* A computer is necessary for the measurement display. Please contact your vendor for further details.
