SmartUs EXT-1M/3M

High Performance Echo Color Doppler

SmartUs EXT is an advanced PC-based, open-architecture, Echo Color Doppler system.It is the result of years of research and development by TELEMED Ultrasound Beamforming Technology and redefines the experience of ultrasound diagnostics.

  • Clinical images
  • Transducers
  • Documentation
  • Software
  • An excellent choice for clinical ultrasound.

    SmartUs incorporates the latest technological solutions developed by TELEMED: Full digital beamformer, Spatial Compound, Tissue Harmonics with Pulse Inversion technology (iTHI), WideView imaging, Advanced Speckle Reduction Imaging, Digital Doppler Multi-Beam Processing, Raw Data, etc… Available with one or three probe connectors, the system supports a wide range of high crystal density, multi-frequency wideband transducers from 1.0 to 18.0 MHz. Uncompromising image quality in general, abdominal, obstetrician-gynaecological, vascular, small parts, musculoskeletal, urological, cardiac, eco-guided procedures, etc… Telemedicine applications allow remote control of the system for consultation, application training and technical support, including free software updates. In its research version, it can be configured with I/O synchronization options, etc….
