Healcerion has launched the SONON 300L handheld ultrasound device into the U.S. market, following FDA approval of this wireless device for primary care providers. It provides flexible ultrasound technology at less than 1/10 the cost of a traditional ultrasound machine, with a user interface anyone can learn in minutes.
Healcerion Founder and CEO Dr. Benjamin Jeongwon Ryu, M.D. says, “SONON 300L is smaller and easier to use than any other ultrasound technology in the U.S. market. It allows PCPs to be more efficient and effective with instant insight to diagnose or refer a patient to a specialist.”
SONON 300L is an advanced diagnostic imaging device that can be used anywhere, with an app downloaded from the Google Play or Apple App Store. It uses a paired tablet or smartphone as a display, where images can be analyzed and shared quickly. The entire device weighs only 13 ounces (370 grams) and has a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, Wi-Fi connectivity and 3G/LTE cellular capability.
SONON 300L also supports medical imaging protocols including DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) and PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System). Using intuitive finger-touch control to operate, it provides rapid, accurate diagnostics to improve patient care and improve efficiency. SONON300L has a 3-hour continuous scanning battery life.
It also provides a new diagnostic ultrasound option for retail clinics, urgent care centers, mini-hospitals, home health care providers, and rural and third-world regions where cost, space, mobility requirements had previously put traditional ultrasound out of reach.
