Redefining the Vision of Cardiovascular Ultrasound

Hitachi has a dedicated variety of cardiovascular ultrasound solutions to help in the early detection and diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases.

 

High Quality Cardiac imaging

eFocusing

Dynamic focusing method that overcomes the limitations of conventional beamforming. Combined with fast parallel beamforming, the display images are homogeneous with excellent S/N and spatial/contrast resolution, without compromising on frame rate, providing auto-optimisation of images as you scan.

High Resolution 2D images

Superb clarity and high sensitiy to provide excellent images.

Free Angular M-mode (FAM)

M-mode can be displayed using any cursor orientation. As a result, the wall motion of value excursion can be compared from multiple angles in the same heartbeat.

Higher Efficiency for Cardiac Evaluation

Automated Measurement

Highly precise automated measurement based on HemoDynamic Structural Intelligence (HDSI). Coupling with Beat Mode, end diastolic and end systolic frames are automatically detected, significantly improving the workflow. Just one touch is required for necessary measurement.

Virtual Contrast

Non-invasive, high-definition blood flow imaging mode which drastically improves spatial and temporal resolution for better visualization of the endocardial border in the left ventricle, with higher sensitivity and resolution compared to conventional methods. Virtual Contrast will help to change a technically difficult study into a diagnostic study without using contrast for LV opacification and analysis.

Dual Gate Doppler

Enables observation of Doppler waveforms from two separate locations during the same heart cycle. A combination of blood flow and tissue doppler waveforms enable measurements such as LV diastolic performance indicator and E/e’ ratio, to avoid beat-to-beat variation.

Dynamic Slow-motion Display

Displays a real-time image and its slow-motion counterpart side by side on one screen, for detailed observation of rapid value movements.

Colour Doppler (Glossy Level)

Further enhances the visual effect of the continuity in blood flow, making the evaluation of blood flow much easier even on the tiniest vessel.

Advanced Cardiac Applications

eTRACKING

Automatic tracking of the pulsation of the vessel wall allows measurement of vessel diameter change in real time. Among the parameters calculated, Stiffness Parameter β provides a numerical evaluation of the arterial wall stiffness that is independent of blood pressure.

3D Echocardiography

With outstanding MPR imaging capabilities, 3D analysis and quantification is now much easier and faster.

2D Tissue Tracking (2DTT) with GLS

Two-dimensional Tissue Tracking can be used to accurately quantify the movement of the entire left ventricle or a local movement of cardiac muscle. With enhanced workflow for detection and Global Longitudinal strain (GLS) calculation, measurement and analysis time is significantly reduced.

Vector Flow Mapping

VFM can display the resultant hemodynamic effects within the LV during systole of defects captured by GLS. The energy loss display maps the energy dissipated by flow disturbance providing possible early detection of heart failure from information obtained within the heart chamber.

R-R Navigation + Dual Gate Doppler

Simultaneous FFT spectral analyses from two sample gates are provided by Dual Gate Doppler, including the combination of PW and TDI. Measurements such as E/e’ ratio, isovolumetric contraction and relaxation times, as well as an evaluation of dyssynchrony in septal and lateral walls can be accessed from the same cardiac cycle.
