Singapore: Hitachi Aloka Medical announced that they have introduced an advanced versatile ultrasound, Noblus. Diagnostic ultrasound has become an indispensable modality for medical care today, one that continues to expand into more and more areas. The new Noblus from Hitachi Aloka Medical was developed to fulfill these needs.
By designing this diagnostic ultrasound system in the form of a laptop PC with an optional cart, Hitachi Aloka Medical created a system with a style flexible enough to operate in many clinical environments. Despite its compact design, Noblus is full of advanced versatilities including real-time tissue elastography, a premium feature that depicts the relative elasticity of tissue and was previously found only on larger cart-based systems.
With the release of Noblus, the notion that 'small systems are for simple examinations' will be a thing of the past. Noblus, with its premium features and flexible style, is expected to bring the clinical benefits of high-end diagnostic ultrasound into new areas of healthcare. Shipments of the Noblus will commence worldwide after the acquisition of a country's marketing authorization.
