Health Canada approves Z.One PRO
February 4, 2015
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – Zonare, a developer of next generation ultrasound technology, announced its Z.One PRO ultrasound system has received clearance from Health Canada. The system is designed to provide an economical, high performance imaging system for a wide variety of applications.
The clearance of the Z.One PRO enables access to the system by clinicians and patients across Canada.
The most recent addition to our product line will provide very high image quality without the price tag normally associated with such quality, said Vince Arsenault, managing director of Zonare Canada. Like our other products, the Z.One PRO is based on proprietary ZONESonography Technology (ZST) which allows us to continue to upgrade the system now and in the future.
ZST brings cutting-edge ultrasound technology to clinical environments, providing unique continuous transmit focus. Unlike conventional beam-former, line-by-line imaging, ZST uses software-driven, large zone acquisitions, rendering an entirely new and different approach to ultrasound data acquisition and image formation.
The result is more imaging detail with consistent, superb resolution and uniform imaging at depth from the smallest to the largest of patients throughout the field of view. ZST is also a Living Technology enabling constant upgrades to the platform.
“I have had recent experience with Zonares technology and am very impressed with the image quality and ease-of-use in critical environments such as the pediatric emergency room and intensive care unit,” said Jeff Burzynski, MD, FRCPC, Clinical Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, Critical Care/Emergency Medicine, Department of Pediatrics, University of Manitoba.
The new Z.One PRO will be a welcome addition to Zonares growing presence in Canada by allowing even greater state-of-the-art, ultrasound imaging access for patients across the country, Dr. Burzynski added.
As an affordable high performance system, the Z.One PRO offers stellar image quality in a durable, small footprint unit. The one-touch easy image optimization and customizable capabilities are part of an intuitive user interface, supporting a seamless workflow. The high speed boot-up, optional battery pack and wireless features allow for easy transport when needed.
Zonare is dedicated to ultrasound excellence through its innovative, award-winning next generation technology which provides the platform for the companys Living Technology designed to meet its customers evolving imaging needs. The patented design and ZONE Sonography Technology (ZST) architecture of the Z.One PRO 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 www.zonare.com.
