Evaluation

Traditionally, manufacturers have vied to increase the resolution and performance of ultrasonic diagnostic equipment, and such equipment has gotten more expensive and grown larger in size. With this model, the manufacturer effectively narrowed down its functionality and downsized its main unit based on an accurate assessment of medical care needs. This has also raised applicability in medical care scenes due to its improved portability, making it the successor to a medical device that was highly praised in the past. Without excessively increasing the size of its main unit, which was characteristic of previous models, its display was moderately enlarged, which is among its features that improve its usability. This is an outstanding product that accurately reflects the needs found at the front lines of medicine.
