With a full selection of probes to select from including convex, phased array, linear or rectal, both models are compatible with an adjustable height premium trolley for easy conversion to a cart based system in the hospital setting.
Sonosite Edge II
Equine vets looking for a tough and light weight option that stands up to the rigours of busy ambulatory practice can’t go past the SonoSite EDGE II Vet. This portable ultrasound system is a work horse that combines great image resolution with features suited to equine vets on the go.
Improved image resolution with DirectClear technology, rapid start up, robust portability with optional Armoured Cable Technology and sealed fluid resistant keypad make it our most popular ultrasound system for equine reproductive and ambulatory practice. The optional trolley and triple transducer connect also allows rapid conversion to a reliable cart-based system for use in hospital settings.
For cattle, the Easi-Scan Curve has been specifically developed for routine reproductive scanning, pregnancy diagnosis and foetal sexing. The significantly wider field of view with the curved sector shape and lower frequency range strikes an ideal balance of image detail and depth penetration. Enhance your efficiency with our heads-up display options of NFI5000 monocular Near-Field Imaging Display or BUG goggles without compromising peripheral vision.
