Terason launches t3000 laptop-based ultrasound system
29 November 2005
Chicago, USA. Terason has launched a new Laptop Ultrasound imaging system,
the Terason t3000. It is based upon proprietary Teratech Architecture, which
combines a front-end Fusion Processor with powerful PC-based back-end data
processing. It runs as a Windows application on a standard laptop computer,
and can be converted from a portable unit to a cart-based system.
The launch was announced during the 91st Scientific Assembly and Annual
Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America in Chicago.
"Exceptional image quality was our design team's highest priority," said
Alice Chiang, Ph.D., Teratech President and CEO, "and the 256-channel Fusion
Processor that resulted from their efforts truly delivers the results we set
out to achieve." Unlike 'custom ASIC' solutions that rely on modified
off-the-shelf components, the Fusion Processor is the only fully
custom-designed, integrated ultrasound chip set in the world. It enables
unprecedented ultrasound image processing power in a small system, and has
enabled Terason to create a portable ultrasound system with exceptional
image quality, portability, usability and value.
