ALOKA Ultrasound Announces U.S. Debut of ProSound Alpha 6

May 12, 2010

Full featured performance in a compact, award winning design

ALOKA Co., Ltd., announced today that its new, full featured, compact ultrasound system, the ProSound Alpha 6, will make its U.S. debut at the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) Annual Clinical Meeting, May 15-19, in San Francisco, CA. The ProSound Alpha 6 combines unprecedented performance and ease of use with an award winning ergonomic design for the OB/GYN, general imaging, and urology office markets.

Building upon the proven technology of the high performance ProSound Alpha 10 and Alpha 7, the ProSound Alpha 6’s high power processor allows a number of different imaging modes previously seen only in high-end systems. The new system is available with or without 3D/4D imaging and is released with a full suite of application-specific probes and software, customizable reports and network/EMR connectivity capabilities.

This latest addition to the ProSound Alpha series was awarded the 2010 International Forum (iF) Product Design Award and was designed to streamline workflow and to be user- and patient-friendly. Its compact, ergonomic design boasts 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.

“We are extremely proud to launch the ProSound Alpha 6 in the United States,” said David Famiglietti, Chief Operating Officer for ALOKA America, Ltd. “The compact and versatile ProSound Alpha 6, with its high performance/cost ratio, is a sound economic investment for your practice.”

ALOKA’s 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 users needs at all price points, bolstering ALOKA’s vision to “Illuminate the change” and to “see the unseen.”

The ProSound Alpha 6 will be on display at ACOG’s Annual Clinical Meeting at the Aloka booth 1325. Shipments of the new ProSound Alpha 6 will commence in the United States in May 2010.
