Inconclusive Echo:
Additional Exams are costly

Inconclusive Echo:
Additional Exams are costly

At least 10-15% of TTEs are inconclusive.1 What would it mean to your patients’ care plans if you could change that?

Every patient is different. Even the best ultrasound system may fall short when used on a difficult-to-scan patient. An inconclusive echocardiogram may lead to the need for additional diagnostic exams and may result in an inefficient care plan.

What if you could address some of the fundamental limitations of today’s traditional (hardware beamforming) ultrasound systems, aiming to reduce non-diagnostic exams? cSound™, a new ultrasound image-processing platform, offers the exceptional imaging quality you need to support patient care.
