The UGEO H60 system integrates SDMR image processing technology that provides sharp 2D images for optimal diagnostic performance.

The device also includes an S-Flow function that enables colour detection with superior sensitivity and allows micro vessels to appear in high resolution.

In addition, 18.5-inch LED-backlit monitor of the device features image processing technologies and a Hybrid Imaging Engine to deliver clear, accurate clinical images.

"The UGEO H60 system integrates SDMR image processing technology that provides sharp 2D images for optimal diagnostic performance."

The system also offers a slim profile for optimal use in crowded scan rooms and includes a built-in gel warmer, which keeps the ultrasound gel at a temperature between 86 and 102 degrees, and helps ensure patient comfort.

Users can employ the time gain compensator (TGC) function of the device to create and access saved presets for added convenience, according to the company.

The company is also introducing new image rendering FRV (Feto Realistic View) technology for the Accuvix A30 ultrasound system that gathers information from 3D/4D data and provides highly detailed images of the fetus.

Samsung Electronics America enterprise business division senior vice president Tod Pike said the company is introducing UGEO H60 and FRV as its commitment towards the healthcare market.

"We are keen to demonstrate how the integration of Samsung technology into our lineup of medical ultrasound and imaging products can help enhance the quality of care and transform both the patient and provider experience," Pike added.
