Primary Care Ultrasound

Primary care physicians are discovering the value of ultrasound visualisation in quickly assessing, diagnosing, and determining treatment options for their patients at the point of care.

There is a growing expectation among patients that the diagnosis and management of their symptoms and disease are primarily addressed in their physician’s office.

Sonosite has worked closely with primary care physicians to develop imaging solutions to meet the rapidly-expanding clinical requirements in their practises. Hand-carried ultrasound can be used to quickly assess structures, such as the abdomen, aorta, kidneys, gallbladder, thyroid and soft tissue in the office environment. It can also be used to manage and treat cardiovascular disease processes with screening tools, such as SonoCalc® IMT software, and embedded CIMT calculations. These tools provide fully-automated, single-click CIMT measurement capabilities and system-embedded packages for cardiovascular disease management.

Sonosite Offers a Range of Customised Products That Provide:

  • Advanced imaging features for exceptional image quality with minimal key strokes
  • Fluid-resistant for easy cleaning and disinfection
  • Under 25 seconds from cold start to scanning
  • Custom use models for point-of-care applications
  • Built to exceed U.S. military specifications for durability
  • Industry leading 5-year warranty
  • Extensive training and education programmes

What Our Customers Have to Say

“I couldn’t imagine doing my job without ultrasound.”

Dr. John Postley, New York Physicians Group, New York City, New York

“Patients come to us because our routine use of hand-carried ultrasound conveys the message that we are at the leading edge of diagnostic screening. We often can’t get through a general or annual exam anymore before the patient asks, ‘When will you do my scan?’”

Dr. David Case, Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine at Weill Medical College of Cornell University, New York Physicians, New York City, New York
