Medical equipment

Medical equipment is designed to aid in the diagnosis, monitoring or treatment of medical conditions. These devices are usually designed with rigorous safety standards. Medical equipment is included in the category Medical technology.

There are several basic types:

Diagnostic equipment includes medical imaging machines, used to aid in diagnosis. Examples are ultrasound and MRI machines, PET and CT scanners, and x-ray machines.
Therapeutic equipment includes infusion pumps, medical lasers and LASIK surgical machines.
Life support equipment is used to maintain a patient's bodily function. This includes medical ventilators, anaesthetic machines, heart-lung machines, ECMO, and dialysis machines.
Medical monitors allow medical staff to measure a patient's medical state. Monitors may measure patient vital signs and other parameters including ECG, EEG, blood pressure, and dissolved gases in the blood.
Medical laboratory equipment automates or helps analyze blood, urine and genes.
Diagnostic Medical Equipment may also be used in the home for certain purposes, e.g. for the control of diabetes mellitus

A biomedical equipment technician (BMET) is a vital component of the healthcare delivery system. Employed primarily by hospitals, BMETs are the people responsible for maintaining a facility's medical equipment.

Voluson E8 Expert BT06 Ultrasound Machine

Includes 3 Transducers!

The Voluson E8 Expert is packed full of innovations to help you see more clearly, work more efficiently and diagnose with more confidence.
Innovations in image quality:

* Speckle Reduction Imaging (SRI) suppresses speckle artifact while maintaining true tissue architecture
* CrossXBeamCRI enhances tissue and border differentiation
* HD-Flow™ achieves a more sensitive vascular study and reduces overwriting
* Volume Contrast Imaging (VCI) allows for better image quality in either a single plane or all three planes of a volume acquisition

Innovations in probe technology:

* High resolution 4D endovaginal probe (RIC6-12D) detects the finest details earlier in the first trimester and in gynecology exams
* Wide sector technology from curved array probes offers a larger field of view, enabling more anatomical information to be displayed
* Matrix array probes provide increased spatial resolution for better visualization

Innovations in image automation:

* Sonography-based Automated Volume Count follicle(SonoAVCfollicle) automatically calculates the number and volume of hypoechoic structures in a volume sweep
* Sonography-based Volume Computer Aided Displayheart(SonoVCADheart) helps standardize image orientation of the fetal heart by providing views automatically obtained from a single volume acquisition

Innovations in image analysis:

Spatio-Temporal Image Correlation (STIC) captures a full fetal heart cycle beating in real time, and the volume can be saved for offline analysis

Tomographic Ultrasound Imaging (TUI) makes analysis and documentation of dynamic studies easier with a simultaneous view of multiple parallel slices of a volume data set
