ProSound Alpha 7 Image Technology

Clear images and advanced functions are what you have come to expect from Hitachi – Aloka. Our 60 years of experience and innovation continues with the ProSound Alpha 7 platform.

  • Compound Pulse Wave Generator (CPWG) – The most advanced broadband beam-forming technology combined with high speed image processing that allows for higher definition ultrasound imaging than ever before.
  • Broadband Harmonics™ (BbH) – Provides high quality imaging using an expanded range of harmonic signals. This technology results in excellent image resolution and sensitivity and improved penetration.
  • Adaptive Image Processing (AIP) – Clearly displays differences in tissues, reducing speckle noise while maintaining the frame rate. It can also display outlines more clearly by selectively emphasizing boundaries.
  • Spatial Compound Imaging (SCI) – The ultrasound beam is transmitted and received in real time and in the multiple directions resulting in a reduction of speckle noise, suppression of artifacts, and improvement of contrast resolution allowing lesions to be clearly observed.
  • Image Optimizer – At the touch of a button the B-mode image is instantly optimized to the user’s preference. This technology continually monitors the user’s typical settings to optimally adjust the image when pressed resulting in less manual adjustments and more efficient examinations.
  • SmartProbes – The new high-efficiency probes are very lightweight and designed to be high in energy conversion to transmit high-quality ultrasound beams.

PROSOUND ALPHA 7 ERGONOMICS

The ProSound Alpha 7 utilizes a user-friendly universal design for multiple user operation that supports speedy examinations and scanning comfort.

  • User-customizable panel switches
  • Blue LED switches helpful to those with deuteranopia
  • Frequently used keys are arranged around a trackball
  • Images can be easily frozen thanks to integration of the gain knob and freeze switch
  • Menu items can be arranged to individual likings on the large (10.4 inches) LCD touch panel
  • Virtual keyboard for touch panel entries
  • Retractable keyboard stored under the operation panel
  • The control panel can be turned horizontally and is height adjustable
  • The most compact and lightest weight in its class allowing for good portability
  • Up to three probe holders can be mounted on each side of the console (holders on left side are optional)

Features

REAL-TIME TISSUE ELASTOGRAPHY
REAL-TIME TISSUE ELASTOGRAPHY

An innovative diagnostic tool that provides real-time color display of tissue elasticity

D-EFLOW
D-EFLOW

Displays blood flow with directional information at higher frame rates and spatial resolution compared to conventional methods. Detail and accuracy of blood flow information is greatly increased with reduced blooming of color.

DUAL DYNAMIC DISPLAY (DDD)
DUAL DYNAMIC DISPLAY (DDD)

Real-time side-by-side display of a B-mode image and Color Doppler image assisting in easy anatomical interpretation of blood flow.

TRAPEZOID
TRAPEZOID

Trapezoidal display on linear transducers provides a wider diagnostic field of view

HIGH-DEFINITION EXTENDED FIELD VIEW (HD-EFV)
HIGH-DEFINITION EXTENDED FIELD VIEW (HD-EFV)

Provides an extended field-of-view image created from a series of real-time images. As the user moves the transducer across the area of interest a larger image is created that provides clearer spatial relationship information of anatomy and structures. This is especially helpful in assessing structures that are larger than the transducer field of view.

CONTRAST HARMONIC ECHO (CHE)
CONTRAST HARMONIC ECHO (CHE)

To improve understanding of blood flow information, Hitachi-Aloka offers harmonics enhanced imaging specifically designed for use with contrast agents. The low MI contrast imaging obtained improves signal-to-noise ratio.
