French manufacturer ECM has developed EXAGO, a mobile ultrasound device. Designed for horses and pets, it features the latest technology used in the medical sector. Its size and weight make it an ideal tool for field diagnoses, as well as for clinical use.
EXAGO is four to five times lighter than a standard scanner, according to a company press release. It weighs just over 7 lbs, including the battery, which has about 4 hours of life. Its 8.4-inch inch screen and large image size helps users make fast, accurate and reliable diagnoses. Ultrasound images and video sequences may be directly saved to the device’s memory.
As a result of its entirely digital design, EXAGO allows software downloads and updates for both software and hardware. Thus users may work with a fully scalable device, according to their needs and to future applications. The device is delivered complete with a wide range of variable frequency probes (convex, micro-convex, linear) for reproductive and gynecological applications, as well as tendon and muscular-skeletal examinations.
