Mountain View, Calif. (PRWEB) May 13, 2014

ZONARE, a leading developer of new generation ultrasound technology, announced the recent installation of three ZS3 ultrasound systems at Northern Westchester Hospital (NWH). Based on ZONE Sonography™ technology (ZST), the system's architecture provides superb imaging quality and enables the ability to offer a unique five-year, state-of-the-art guarantee (Z5) covering all service aspects as well as any software updates.

"At Northern Westchester Hospital, our priority is to provide patients with high-quality, patient-centered medical care in a cost-effective manner," said David Natoli, administrative director, Imaging and Cardiology Services at NWH. "It is imperative to have state-of-the-art imaging capability at the time of system purchase, but also to maintain superb image quality for our patients throughout the life of the system."

Zone Sonography technology (ZST) is an innovative approach to echo data acquisition and image formation. Using a small number of large "zones," ZST acquires ultrasound data significantly faster than conventional ultrasound and extracts more information on each transmit receive cycle. Since the speed of sound traveling through tissue is a physical constant, ZST has a significantly faster acoustic acquisition time enabling superior imaging quality. ZST is a Living Technology which delivers ultrasound imaging excellence based on a dynamic and open architecture that allows continual platform evolvement.

"By providing this Z5 guarantee, we are uniquely enabling our customers to offer high-end, state-of-the-art ultrasound standards for their patients while doing so in the most economically advantageous manner possible," said Glen Mclaughlin, PhD, president and CTO, ZONARE. "Most importantly, we provide this with no additional expenditure. This allows us to closely partner with such healthcare leaders as NWH in its ongoing mission to provide the best in patient care while conserving economic resources."


ZONARE is solely dedicated to ultrasound excellence through its innovative, award-winning next generation technology which provides the platform for the company's Living Technology designed to meet its customers evolving imaging needs. The patented design and Zone Sonography ™ Technology (ZST) architecture of the ultra and ZS3 platforms deliver high-end image quality and clinical versatility. ZONARE is now an independently run, wholly owned subsidiary of Mindray Medical International. For more information, visit
