Telemed designs, builds and licenses ultrasound scanners and related
equipment. The company was founded in March 1992. The initial aim of the company was to
research and design ultrasound medical equipment, but from mid 1992 we have
also manufactured ultrasound devices. Our ultrasound
scanner "MLS" was the first Lithuanian scanner certified by the state
Department of Health.
In 1993 we began a new line of products: PC-based ultrasound systems. Since
1995 we have partnered with OEM companies, allowing them to manufacture and
sell their own ultrasound scanners.
Our equipment is sold in over 55 countries and we have representatives in
over 30 countries.
Currently our staff consists of 15 top-level ultrasound equipment designers
with more than 18 years of experience in ultrasound.

Frost & Sullivan
Award for the Echo Blaster ultrasound system
Press release, September 2005:
The 2005 Frost & Sullivan Customer Value Award is
presented to Lithuania-based JS Company Telemed for its Echo Blaster
PC-based ultrasound system offering. This innovative, clinically competent,
excellently priced, ultrasound system offers exceptional customer value to
financially constrained Eastern European healthcare providers. The Echo
Blaster, and the higher specification Echo Blaster 128, are therefore set to
power Telemed’s growth in the Eastern and also Western European medical
imaging modality market of entry level ultrasound equipment.
The Echo Blaster and Echo Blaster 128 offer clinical
capabilities comparable to low to medium-end black and white ultrasound
scanners of leading global modality vendors, albeit at more economical
prices. This has underscored their tremendous appeal as the ideal budget
solution in the Eastern European medical imaging modality market. In Poland
and Romania for instance, the systems are hugely marketable commodities,
particularly among fast expanding private clinics looking to obtain the best
clinical capabilities at the fastest return on investment.
“The innovative configuration of standard PC notebooks with
beamformers and the use of software scan-converters have underlined the high
quality to price ratio,” asserts Frost & Sullivan Healthcare Research
Analyst Martin Bryant. “These devices can also be installed into the
regular PC and enable the synchronisation of all modules of an ultrasound
scanner. They then send the ultrasound information to the monitor display in
the real-time mode. These elements can be sold to other OEMs for the
construction of their own systems, which represents even greater performance
Exhibiting outstanding capabilities, the Echo Blaster is
compact and lightweight, offering full portability at a favourable cost.
Despite not being an ultrasound system in the conventionally accepted sense,
the Echo Blaster still offers a wide range of real-time features expected of
such a system: depth control, dynamic focus, acoustic power, gain, TGC and
real-time free-hand zoom.
In addition, the Echo Blaster is compatible with a wide
range of ultrasound scanners, thereby opening up the fields of abdominal,
cardiac, obstetric, paediatric small part, transrectal, transvaginal and
vascular ultrasound to Telemed’s end users. “This range of clinical
applications further enhances the value proposition of the Echo Blaster
offering, as it provides opportunities for a greater number of referrals and
a higher level of reimbursement for healthcare providers in the medical
imaging sector,” says Mr. Bryant.
The PC notebook also enables the Echo Blaster system to
offer the advantages inherent in a standard PC notebook. This includes the
ability to store, review and publish clinical images for an unlimited length
of time. Moreover, the option to send still or video-streamed images over
the Internet makes telemedicine an extremely affordable prospect.
A commitment to research and development has underpinned
recent achievements such as the launching of the new Echo Blaster 128
software in December 2004 and the new Echo Blaster software in April 2005.
The ongoing development of a colour Doppler version of Telemed’s Echo
Blaster end-user system introduced in August 2005 and software add-ons —
free-hand 3D and panoramic imaging along with real-time speckle reduction
technique — that are usually available only for high-range equipment,
reinforce the company’s efforts to provide high quality, cost-effective
“Telemed’s drive to bring its excellent customer value to
the higher-end of the ultrasound segment is testimony both to the quality of
Telemed’s product offerings and its prospects for expansion into newer and
more lucrative markets,” concludes Mr. Bryant.
