By : |February 15, 2010 0

NEW DELHI, INDIA: GE Healthcare, on Monday announced the availability of Vscan, a new, pocket-sized visualization tool developed to provide physicians with imaging capabilities at the point-of-care.

Roughly the size of a smart phone, Vscan houses ultra-smart ultrasound technology that provides clinicians with an immediate, non-invasive method to help secure visual information about what is happening inside the body. Vscan is portable and can easily be taken from room to room to be used in many clinical, hospital or primary care settings, said a press release.

The ability to take a quick look inside the body using Vscan may help clinicians detect disease earlier. This may prove invaluable in today’s busy practice environment including primary care physicians and those specializing in cardiology, critical and emergency care and women’s health, as well as hospitalists.

The solution offers the image quality that until recently was only available with a console ultrasound.

Vscan leverages GE’s high-quality black and white image technology and color-coded blood flow imaging in a device that fits into a pocket and weighs less than one pound at 3 inches wide and 5.3 inches long, said the release.

The Vscan imaging device received 510(k) clearance in the U.S. by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the CE Mark by the European Union, as well as the Medical Device License from Health Canada and is now commercially available in the U.S., Europe, India and Canada, it added.
