Montefiore Medical Center Offers Patients World's First Convertible Ultrasound(TM) System

Leading Healthcare Facility Brings Revolutionary Zone Sonography(TM) Technology to New York City Vascular Patients

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Sept. 13 (HSMN NewsFeed) -- ZONARE Medical Center, a developer of next-generation ultrasound technology, announced the company has installed two ultrasound systems at the Montefiore Medical Center's prestigious Non-Invasive Vascular Laboratory. Based on revolutionary Zone Sonography(TM) technology, the system from ZONARE Medical Systems is the world's first Convertible Ultrasound(TM) platform.

"Montefiore's Vascular Center is well known for its excellence in patient care and employment of state-of-the-art technology," said Donald Southard, president and CEO for ZONARE. "We are grateful to be a part of this outstanding team of healthcare professionals and look forward to our ongoing partnership in providing superior medical care."

The Non-Invasive Vascular Lab is dedicated to providing state-of-the-art and full service diagnostic testing for all vascular disorders. Montefiore's internationally renowned staff includes a team of vascular surgeons and technologists trained in the latest vascular procedures and imaging technologies. Treating one of the largest volumes of vascular patients in the country, Montefiore's professional staff is at the forefront of virtually every aspect of vascular disease treatment including extensive expertise in ultrasound imaging.

"Unlike other portable systems, ZONARE's breakthrough technology retains all of the raw data from the ultrasound signal," said Southard. "Consequently, a clinician is able to interrogate a complete diagnostic set of information after the exam and more closely scrutinize critical vascular structures or potential pathology. This, along with the ability to quickly take ultrasound imaging to a patient's bedside or to the OR, makes the system a valuable addition to a facility's diagnostic services."

Zone Sonography technology has allowed ZONARE Medical Systems to bring the first Convertible Ultrasound platform to the industry with superb image quality at a substantial price to value ratio. Clinicians are able to instantly convert the platform from a full-featured, cart-based system into a premium compact, ultrasound system with all the performance of substantially larger and more expensive ultrasound units, yet, with greater portability and clinical flexibility than conventional compact systems.

Combining a fundamentally new advance in ultrasound, Zone Sonography technology, coupled with the platform's radically new physical design, provides the maximum flexibility offering significant clinical and workflow solutions for a wide variety of customer challenges. The platform's Zone Sonography software-based architecture ensures that its performance will increase as improvements in processing power become available. This allows for fast, convenient upgrades in clinical capabilities, keeping clinicians at the forefront of diagnostic capabilities as well as protecting their investment. Most upgrades can be downloaded via the internet, another industry first.
