Canon Medical Systems introduces 33 MHz Ultra-High Frequency Transducer to Help Expand the Clinical Applications of Ultrasound

New Transducer Delivers Highest Frequency on the Market

Vienna, Austria, 27 February 2019 – Expanding its advanced, high-performing Aplio i-series ultrasound platform Canon Medical Systems introduces the industry’s first 33 MHz ultra-high frequency linear transducer on Aplio i800 to provide extremely fine detail and spatial resolution in the near field.

The ultra-high frequency transducer uses iDMS and SMI technologies to provide superb resolution and detail for B-mode and Color Flow imaging never seen with conventional, multi-purpose ultrasound devices before, making Aplio i800 ideal for superficial subcutaneous imaging, exams of small joints, superficial nerves, as well as for superficial vascular evaluations. Furthermore, Smart Sensor 3D allows the user to acquire accurate volume images with the 33MHz transducer, also in SMI mode, and visualize microvascular structures in 3D, which can be helpful during surgical planning.

“The Aplio i800 is known for its excellent imaging capability and robust lineup of high-frequency transducers. We are building on that reputation with the introduction of the new 33 MHz ultra-high frequency transducer,” said Geoffrey Pick, Senior Manager of the Ultrasound Business Unit at Canon Medical Systems Europe B.V.. “With the new transducer we are expanding the use of ultrasound to new territories, helping customers acquire clear images for confident diagnoses.”

Canon Medical is showcasing the Aplio i800 with its new 33 MHz transducer at this year’s ECR in Vienna, February 28 – March 03, 2019 (Expo X3).
