RICHMOND, British Columbia, Sept. 23 /PRNewswire/ — Ultrasonix
Medical Corporation, a leading developer and manufacturer of high
quality diagnostic ultrasound imaging systems is pleased to
announce today the introduction of SonixVCR, a software-based
innovation that records, stores, and exports entire exams in a
standard digital format.
SonixVCR is an easy to use on-board recording feature that is
enabled with the click of 1-button. Available on the Sonix Series
ultrasound systems, SonixVCR can record up to 60 minutes of imaging
per file, the same way an external VCR or digital recorder would –
without the need for any additional hardware or external recording
SonixVCR files are compressed and saved as MPEG1 recordings and
can be easily stored or shared electronically within the same HIPPA
Compliance Protocols as still or multi-frame images. Because they
are in a digital format they will not degrade over time as compared
to traditional storage media such as VCR tapes or CD/DVD discs.
Exam reviews are no longer limited to short clips. Instead the
entire exam can be reviewed from start to finish. Since the file
sizes are approximately 50 times smaller than comparable CINE
clips, SonixVCR files can be easily distributed for review.
These files also seamlessly transfer to SonixHUB, a proven
Ultrasonix exclusive exam management, credentialing and archiving
solution. SonixVCR partnered with SonixHUB provides users with a
superior workflow solution to archive, review, and store
comprehensive files of a patient’s entire exam data.
