BFMC Features Latest Premium Level Ultrasound Imaging



Baystate Franklin Medical Center now has the latest in premium level ultrasound imaging. Our new iU22 ultrasound system provides advanced diagnostic imaging capabilities with an intelligent system interface that streamlines ultrasound exams. Offering unprecedented image quality and sensitivity, this system can help us visualize abnormalities sooner, which can translate into earlier detection and treatment for your patients.


Some highlights of the new system include:


  • Clinically proven imaging technologies with unique SonoCT real-time compound imaging plus lifelike 3D capabilities available for the first time. XRES adaptive processing provides clear visualization of borders, interfaces and irregular structures while reducing artifacts, thus allowing increased confidence in making quicker diagnoses.


  • High-frequency transducers, up to 17 MHz, for exceptional visualization of superficial structures and breast biopsies. The system’s powerful imaging capabilities support a variety of common exams, including prenatal, vascular, thyroid, and testicular exams.


  • The iU22 features an adjustable, articulating flat screen LCD monitor that can be positioned so that it can be viewed from almost any direction, thus allows patients the ability to see images during scanning, as well.


Area physicians who would like a demonstration of the new system and see how it changes how ultrasounds are performed and interpreted should contact the BFMC Radiology department.
