The use of an ultrasound scanner in pneumology is showing to be of continuously increasing relevance for diagnostics.
Thoracic ultrasonography enables you to determine the following pathologies immediately: pleural and pericardial effusion, empyema, pneumothorax, pleurisy, pulmonary fibrosis, fractures and other pathologies causing respiratory deficiency.
Thoracic ultrasonography is as useful as X-ray and it even enables you to detect quantities of liquid which are inferior to those determined by X-ray.
Thoracic ultrasound also enables you to follow interventional procedures in real time, like for instance thoracentesis or toracostomy.
Furthermore, with the high quality and portability of EXAGO and EXAGYNE it is possible to make these examinations at the patient’s bedside and even on patients who are difficultly transportable.
EXAGO, the ultra-portable scanner weighs only 3.2 kg and boots up in 20 seconds. It provides a high-quality image with an excellent contrast and also both colour Doppler and Pulsed Wave. The M mode enables you to evaluate the mobility of the diaphragm very quickly. EXAGO works on battery with an excellent autonomy that enables you to work for more than 5 hours without any concern about electricity.
EXAGYNE, the portable scanner, provides a very good image quality, an excellent Doppler with a remarkable sensibility and real triplex. Specific and user-friendly presets are available and very easily customizable in order to adapt to each individual user. The more advanced functions like Ima Level and two easily accessible types of zoom are appreciated by all users working in pneumology and thoracic ultrasound.
