With more than sixty years of tradition and wide know how in imaging techniques, Hitachi Aloka has always been a pioneer in developing reliable high quality solutions for a broad range of ultrasound applications. "The F31 is a compact entry level colour unit combining modern imaging technologies, precision and functionality to facilitate a great variety of different examinations", explains
For superb image quality, the F31 is equipped with high performance functions like Broadband Harmonics (BbH), Adaptive Image Processing (AIP*) and Spatial Compound Imaging (SCI*). These guarantee high sensitivity and low noise anatomic images of outstanding resolution, while blood flow mapping with eFLOW allows demonstration of the microvasculature. Free Angular M-mode (FAM*) can be implemented in real-time or reconstructed from the cine memory. Orientation at arbitrary angles allows for variations in heart orientation. Further detailed observation of heart valve motion is possible with the Dynamic Slow-motion Display (DSD). The data management package offers full versatility, supporting a broad range of image formats, such as DICOM*, AVI, BMP, and JPG.
The F31's user-friendliness is another significant aspect. Free positioning of the user interface and the monitor allows easy, intuitive handling and excellent mobility. The monitor is rotatable by 330degree(s) in horizontal direction, giving optimal observation angles for all applications. The operating console can be turned by 90degree(s) to the left or right and height adjusted, always guaranteeing comfortable handling for any type of examination - seated or standing. With the console folded away and using the rear handles, the F31 can easily and safely be moved around on its large rubber swivel wheels. The outer appearance is pleasant, preserving the patients' confidence.
For best operability, the F31 combines all performance characteristics known from the Hitachi Aloka product range with ergonomic handling, which ensures high efficiency. To guarantee a smooth and time-saving examination procedure - also for new users - the most frequently used controls can be found directly on the operating console and are placed together, so the user can comfortably and intuitively reach them by one hand. This direct access to common functions minimises examination times, especially if several measurements are necessary. By a single keystroke, the F31 adapts the B-mode and automatically optimises brightness and spectral waveform on the basis of the user's previous preferences. At the same time, the automatic correction of the beam-to-flow angle in PW Doppler mode significantly improves measuring accuracy.
