Manatee Diagnostic Center Acquires Advanced Ultrasound Technology, First in Manatee County
Manatee Diagnostic Center (MDC) now has an innovative new tool for patient care with the acquisition of the LOGIQ™ E10 ultrasound system from GE Healthcare, available at MDC’s four locations. This next-generation ultrasound system will help shorten patient exam times while giving physicians detailed information to help make informed diagnoses and treatment decisions for patients.
“The LOGIQ E10 expands our diagnostic ultrasound capabilities at MDC beyond what we’ve previously been able to accomplish,” said Rebecca Huff, MSN, RN, Director of Clinical Operations at MDC. “It provides us with extraordinary scanning capabilities we can use for general imaging on a wide range of patients – from infants to large adults – and conditions from head to toe.”
Thousands of ultrasound tests, also known as sonography, are performed in the U.S. each year as image quality continues to improve and applications continue to expand. It is a non-invasive medical test that uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of internal body structures and organs as well as to show blood flow through vessels. Sound waves are sent and received by a hand-held device called a transducer which is placed on the body.
The LOGIQ E10 is an important innovation that addresses the growing need for smart and efficient healthcare. In addition to helping shorten exam times, clinicians can acquire incredibly detailed images faster than ever before with the LOGIQ E10, allowing them to scan, diagnose and treat a broad range of conditions.
The LOGIQ E10 acquires and reconstructs data in a similar way to an MRI or CT system, powered by an advanced Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) with 48 times the data throughput and 10 times the power of previous GE systems. Comprehensive tools help to give clinicians the information they need for confident diagnoses.
