Zug, December 6, 2017 – Premium cardiac and vascular imaging rises to a new standard as Hitachi Medical Systems Europe introduces its new premium 2D/4D cardiovascular ultrasound system, the LISENDO 880, featuring HDAnalyticsTM, a unique and accurate cardiovascular analysis package for confident cardiac hemodynamic assessments, at EuroEcho Imaging 2017 in Lisbon, Portugal, December 6, 2017.
Since their inception, today’s ultrasound systems have progressed to become essential medical devices for all levels of cardiovascular care. The LISENDO 880 is Hitachi’s new premium 2D/4D diagnostic ultrasound solution for cardiologists that redefines the vision of cardiac ultrasound by providing exceptional clinical performance coupled with state-of-the-art features and analytics.
Hitachi released the world’s first diagnostic ultrasound system in 1960 and the world’s first Colour Doppler ultrasound system in 1983. Continuing this history of innovation, Hitachi introduced Vector Flow Mapping (VFM) analysis using ultrasound in 2013. Hitachi stands out as a company dedicated to providing unique solutions to echocardiography’s clinical challenges. The LISENDO 880 maintains Hitachi’s tradition of providing exceptionally innovative ultrasound for cardiovascular care.
The LISENDO 880 was developed to address the most important needs for cardiovascular imaging:
