INDIANAPOLIS, Sept. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Esaote North America is highlighting its MyLab Seven and MyLab Alpha systems at the annual conference of the Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (SDMS) being held September 20-23 at the Washington State Convention and Trade Center in Seattle.

With declining reimbursements becoming the new-normal, the MyLab Seven and MyLab Alpha help clinicians deliver high quality scans and improve patient throughput.   At the core of these systems is Esaote's e-touch feature which is displayed through its touch screen. By simply pressing the e-touch button, a user can enter a customized environment where personal settings, complex functions, annotations and measurements can be stored and easily recalled during the examinations, allowing a standard ultrasound system to become someone's personal diagnostic tool. Together with the MyLab Desk, the MyLab Seven and MyLab Alpha are ideally suited for busy labs where delivering high quality exams and patient throughput is the priority.

"The enhanced imaging capabilities in our latest release are the result of working closely with our customers to gather input to build and deliver meaningful advancements for the USA market," said Claudio Bertolini, president of Esaote North America. "We will continue to deliver what the market needs to help sonographers and clinicians focus on their patients to deliver high quality care and maintain the desired productivity."

The MyLab Desk allows users to archive, review, post-process and print exams from the convenience of a PC, all of which can be done remotely giving clinicians the ultimate freedom to work whenever and wherever they choose.   

 "We purchased three MyLab Sevens because it made economic sense for us," said Jeff Kaplan, COO of HeartWell LLP in Miami, FL. "We are a busy outpatient center and we needed to replace  our older systems with newer technology that would deliver good image quality yet not require a large initial cash outlay.  With declining reimbursements, it was important to realize value; not having to purchase a PACS incremental to the purchase of the ultrasound systems was a key factor in our decision. Our doctors are able to remotely view and read the studies using the MyLab Desk software which comes integrated in the ultrasound system. This setup works for us."
