August 28, 2009

New ProSound Alpha 6 offers multi-purpose performance in a variety of ultrasound applications


Tokyo, Japan - Aloka Co., Ltd., announced today its new ProSound Alpha 6, the next generation of compact color ultrasound systems. The ProSound Alpha 6 multi-purpose system provides unprecedented performance in a variety of ultrasound applications and is fully upgradeable and easy to use.

Building upon the proven technology of the high performance ProSound Alpha 10 and Alpha 7, the ProSound Alpha 6 addresses multiple diagnostic applications in one system. The new system is released with a full suite of application-specific probes and software, designed for general imaging, cardiovascular, obstetrics and gynecology, and internal medicine. The Alpha 6 high power processor allows a number of different imaging modes previously seen only in high end systems, without compromising image quality or color Doppler sensitivity.

This latest addition to the ProSound Alpha series is also designed for ease of use. Its compact, ergonomic design features a large, programmable touch screen for quick access to frequently-used controls. The ProSound Alpha 6 is mobile, economical, and environmentally friendly, with reduced power consumption.

The ProSound Alpha 6 will make its debut appearance at the World Federation for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (WFUMB) in Sydney, Australia, August 30 - September 3, 2009, and in Europe at the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Congress 2009 in Barcelona from August 29 - September 1, 2009. The system will also be featured at the International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynaecology (ISUOG) in Hamburg, Germany, September 13-17, 2009.

"We are extremely proud to launch the ProSound Alpha 6," said Minoru Yoshizumi, President, Aloka Co., Ltd. "The compact and versatile ProSound Alpha 6, with its high performance/cost ratio, makes the health benefits of ultrasound diagnosis more readily available to those in need around the world."

The ProSound Alpha series has a well-established reputation in large facilities and hospital imaging departments worldwide. The robust systems are fully functional in all work environments from research to ultrasound departments to private practices. With the introduction of the Alpha 6, the Alpha Series now offers diagnostic ultrasound solutions to meet all users needs, bolstering Aloka's vision to "Illuminate the change" and to "see the unseen."

Shipments of the new ProSound Alpha 6 will commence in Europe and Asia in October 2009. Pending FDA clearance, Aloka expects the Alpha 6 to be available in the United States by mid-2010.
