Neonatology and Pediatrics

When it comes to ultrasound, not all systems are created equal and the Vevo MD stands apart from the rest, especially for the smallest of patients.

Small patients require small transducers with great resolution. The Vevo MD is designed for the tiniest of patients allowing visualization of minute details in high resolution. Imagine the challenges faced when imaging a high-risk premature newborn infant; trying to visualize tiny vessels and structures in their body. For example, in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) a doctor may try to perform a line insertion into a critically ill premature newborn. This involves finding a blood vessel in a baby with a wrist that is the size of your pinky finger.

Only the Vevo MD can perform the proper visualization in this scenario within the critical time window that is required.
