Carestream Health’s ultrasound systems receive FDA 510(k) clearance
Two CARESTREAM Touch Ultrasound Systems have received FDA 510(k) Clearance and are now available for order in the United States: the CARESTREAM Touch Prime Ultrasound System and the CARESTREAM Touch Prime XE Ultrasound System. Both premium systems are designed for general diagnostic imaging use in radiology.
These two products are the first in Carestream’s new family of ultrasound systems, which earned praise for its all-touch control panel and advanced imaging capabilities when demonstrated to attendees of the 2014 Radiological Society of North America conference and the 2015 American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine meeting.
“These new ultrasound systems build upon our proven expertise in digital X-ray systems,” said Diana L. Nole, President, Digital Medical Solutions, Carestream. “We started with a clean slate and worked with customers to develop a new generation of ultrasound systems that enhance ease of use and productivity, while incorporating integrated GPU processing power that delivers fast response times and extremely high image quality.”
