SonoSite Introduces S-Women’s Health™ Ultrasound Tool, Bringing Customization to Women’s Health

BOTHELL, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SonoSite, Inc. (NASDAQ:SONO), the world leader and specialist in hand-carried ultrasound for the point-of-care, introduced today the S-Women’s Health ultrasound tool. The newest product in SonoSite’s S Series™ product line is an innovative, custom-designed solution to enable women’s health clinicians to provide comprehensive care in the patient exam room. It joins the M-OB/Gyn Office™ and the S-Gyn™ ultrasound tools as part of SonoSite’s innovative suite of products for women’s health.

“The S-Women’s Health is great to have in the exam room because if a patient comes in with a lump, I am able to quickly and easily determine if it is something like fibrocystic thickening, or if it requires additional evaluations,” said Deanna J. Attai, MD, FACS, Center for Breast Care in Burbank, California. “When you consider the quality and affordability of the system and the fact that you can pick it up and take it to the operating room, you just can’t get a better tool for your practice than the S-Women’s Health system.”

The S-Women’s Health ultrasound tool is designed with women’s health clinicians in mind. It is sophisticated, yet simple and easy to use. Buttons, dials and menus have been eliminated from the interface, with the exception of two controls- Depth and Gain- for acquiring the optimum image quality. SonoSite’s proprietary advanced technologies, SonoHD™ and SonoMB™, are incorporated, providing crystal-clear imaging and enabling the physician to visualize minute details. With the capacity to zero-in on a targeted area, SonoSite’s advanced SonoAdapt™ technology enables the clinician to confidently locate masses, target lesions, guide biopsies, and initiate a course of treatment.
