Femoral neck fracture is one of the most severe complications that frequently occur in osteoporosis patients. Key factors for femoral neck fracture are reported to include reduced bone strength (bone vulnerability), falls, past fracture, and bone structure.
To prevent patients from becoming bed-ridden due to fracture and to help maintain or improve quality of life, fracture risk assessment based on bone strength (elasticity) measurement has become important, raising great expectations for the use of ultrasound in fracture risk assessment.
The Aloka SSD-500 portable ultrasound machine is a compact and lightweight multi-purpose diagnostic ultrasound system providing excellent image quality with comprehensive functions in a portable body.
Uncomplicated controls, logically designed for straight forward operation, simplifies operator training, helps to reduce examination times, and increases overall operator efficiency. The mobility of the system enables it to be used on the desktop in an examination room, at the bedside of in-patients who have difficulty moving, in the operating theater, etc.

This black and white, in-clinic system employs convex and linear probe technology. Its quality and intuitive design make it the “gold standard” for reliability and ease of use in veterinary medicine.
Multi-frequency system Allows the clinician to scan a wide range of different size patients with the same probe.
Preset function Use the 15 user-programmable presets to register your preferences and recall them with a simple of touch of a button.
Multi-Stage Dynamic Focusing The transmitted ultrasound beams are focused throughout the entire field of view. In addition, up to 4 user selectable focal zones can be selected to optimize resolution in the area of interest.
Image processing Select (IPS): enables you to pre-program up to 8 combinations of imaging factors for each of 15 pre-sets
Image select function: Transmit, frequency, receive frequency, and transducer aperture size are changed to optimize the image. R=resolution; S=standard; P=penetration
Automatic B-gain control (ABC): provides hands free automatic system gain control providing a constant image brightness.
Aloka will introduce SSD-1700, a new color-flow ultrasound scanner with an option available to support digital management of ultrasound images. The new scanner employs a similar imaging architecture to Aloka’s existing SSD-2000 scanner, but users can add a data management subsystem (DMS) for functions such as image processing and archiving, according to William Jennings, vice president of sales and marketing for the Wallingford, CT, company. SSD-1700 will be shown as a work-in-progress.
The DMS module is like an onboard workstation that lets sonographers archive up to 1000 gray-scale ultrasound images or 400 color images on a single magneto-optical disk. Clinicians can also store cine loop images, conduct online and off-line measurements, and load data into a PC, Jennings said. DMS images are digitized from the scanner’s scan converter into the DICOM 3.0 format, making it easier to integrate SSD-1700 with a DICOM network.
Aloka will target a price point for SSD-1700 of under $200,000 when FDA clearance is received. The scanner has been shipping to international customers for the past several months.
In addition to SSD-1700, Aloka will display images produced with a new work-in-progress 3-D technique called Volume Mode. Volume Mode creates 3-D surface renderings without the use of a separate workstation, and Aloka will emphasize ob/gyn images reconstructed with the technology.

The Nellcor N-180 provides continuous, non-invasive measurement of oxygen saturation and pulse rate. These measurements are updated with each heartbeat. The saturation range goes from 0 to 100% and pulse rates from 20 to 250bpm. The unit runs AC power, as well as an internal battery. Compact and lightweight, these units are easily portable.
The audible alarms are configurable or the user can preset limits for adults or neonates. Two 3-digit green and red displays for oxygen saturation and pulse rate. 16-segment display for pulse amplitude indicator. Annunciators for LOW BATT, PULSE SEARCH, HIGH SAT, LOW SAT, HIGH RATE, and LOW RATE alarms, and AUDIO ALARM OFF.
