ESRA 2016 in Maastricht


We are looking forward to the upcoming ESRA exhibition in Maastricht 7-10 Sept. – and this year more than ever.

At our booth, no. 8, we will be showing the new SonoSite SII and SonoSite Edge II – two true point-of-care top ultrasound performers. We will also bring the new linear transducer for the SonoSite iViz, which only broadens the possibilities for this highly innovative pocket sized ultrasound scanner.
To top it off, we will also be introducing a world premiere from Temena: The new EVOLUTION ultrasound needle – a small miracle in its own right.

So drop by our booth at ESRA and experience it all first hand – we look forward to seeing you there.


The new SonoSite SII is an carefully thought through reinvention of the popular S-Serie scanner from SonoSite.
A completely new touch screen user interface now makes it even easier to perform an ultrasound guided procedure. The intelligent SII software ensures that only relevant functions for the chosen procedure is presented on screen. It has in truth never been more simple to operate an ultrasound machine.

With the new SonoSite Edge II visualization has been clearly enhanced via improved penetration and contrast resolution – the technology is called DirectClear.
Edge II has a completely sealed keypad to successfully inhibit liquid ingress. Also new is the wide-angle, full-bleed glass display with anti-reflection for minimal adjustments during viewing. The low-profiled keys with tactile feedback ensures easy cleaning and disinfection for the critical environments. Edge II is robust, reliable and responsive.

The DirectClear technology is an industry-first, as are the new armored cable technology which now takes the transducer durability to new heights. Both the DirectClear and armored cable technology are available for both systems.


With the introduction of the SonoSite iViz the standards for what modern ultrasound is and what is can do was set extremely high. Now, with the introduction of the new linear transducer for the iViz, the possibilities are endless. This pocket sized little ultrasound wonder will amaze you with its diversity and flexibility – fully integrated, you can bring it with you anywhere.

SonoSite iViz features:

– One-handed, thumb-operated interface
– 64 GB memory, storing over 1,000 studies
– Rechargeable and swappable battery with 1 hour of continuous scanning
– Full connectivity; WiFi, Bluetooth, DICOM
– Access online tutorials via SonoAccess app
– 2D, M-Mode, Colour Doppler and THI with multiple optimization settings


The EVOLUTION ultrasound needle secures you optimal visualization during ultrasound guided procedures. The 360 degrees high visualization makes it a true champion in its class and the centimetric markings help guide the user during the ultrasound procedure. Still, the Temena legacy features remain with the atraumatic cut and the treated surface to ensure minimal micro-lesion of the tissue.

The new EVOLUTION ultrasound needle of course features the Luer-lock connection for extension tubes – so no need for tiresome and hard to-fit lock adaptors. The Luer-lock safely secures the connection tube – hassle-free – for optimum patient safety and ease of use.
