First Venous Insufficiency Clinics in Indiana to Use Zone Sonography(TM) Technology

GREENWOOD, Ind., March 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Decatur Vein Clinic, a leading provider of chronic venous insufficiency

healthcare services, today announced it has installed 11 additional premium ultrasound systems from ZONARE Medical Systems, bringing the total number of ultrasound systems to 24 at Decatur Vein Clinic sites across Indiana, Michigan and Colorado.  

"The system uses the new Zone Sonography technology, which is a major advance in medical ultrasound imaging," said Claudia Benge, RVS, RVT, RPhS, FSVU, Ultrasound Director of Decatur Vein Clinic.  "We are able to use our new ultrasound systems in two configurations – either as a full-featured cart-based system or converted to a small, five-and-a-half pound laptop-sized system, which is extremely helpful.  The images are so clear and crisp that the examination images appear in high definition like the new flat screened televisions.  We are able to see very small blood vessels with great detail and accuracy.  This system allows us to formulate an individual clinical treatment plan that will benefit our patients and improve their daily life."

The ultrasound system is a premium-quality, Convertible Ultrasound™ platform based on proprietary Zone Sonography™ technology. Clinicians are able to easily convert the system from a full-featured, cart-based system into a premium compact ultrasound system without sacrificing image quality or performance. As a result, demanding clinical studies can be done in a variety of clinical settings with high diagnostic confidence

"Decatur Vein Clinic has been a leader in the delivery of venous disease care across large portions of the United States for many years and we are proud to have had a long standing relationship as their provider of premium ultrasound systems,' said Mark Miller, Vice President of Sales and Marketing.  "We are pleased that they have once again selected ZONARE as their ultrasound partner and we remain dedicated to providing premium performance, full-featured ultrasound systems offering high confidence in clinical diagnoses and greater ease-of-use."

The ultrasound platform's software-based architecture allows its performance to continue to improve as greater processing power becomes available. System software upgrades can be downloaded over the internet.

"The ability to use the system as a full-featured cart-based system for routine ultrasound exams and during our non-invasive vein treatments without sacrificing image quality, was a key reason we selected ZONARE's system," added Benge. "We believe it is important to offer our patients the best advances in diagnostic ultrasound imaging."
