Bones, which are the base of healthy life, have been drawing attention around the world today. As a pioneer and leader of diagnostic ultrasound systems, we have developed a bone densitometry system with a new approach. It is created through the concept of an "eggshell", a shape bone in nature. Simply beautiful. Stronger, more lightweight, easier to handle. All of these for maximum portability.
Hitachi's "EggQus" is the "Egg of Columbus" of quantitative ultrasound systems.
Foot stand unit enables optimum heel position
The foot stand unit adjusts the measurement position according to the examinee's foot size. This enables transmission and reception of ultrasound pulses at the correct calcaneus position.
Makes measurements in approximately three seconds
Short measurement time enables more comfort for elderly examinees and for screenings that require rapid handling.
Temperature correction and heel width measurement
Speed of sound variations due to difference in temperature can be optimized , minimizing measurement errors. Speed of sound calculated from the examinee's heel width precisely reflects the bone condition.
EggQus is lightweight, compact and handy compared to conventional ultrasound bone densitometry systems. The large integral handle facilitates in-hospital rounds and house visits.
Rechargeable battery operated
The system is powered by rechargeable batteries for outstanding portability. Using the AC adapter accessory allows continuous and convenient use for hours.
The smooth, soft design enables easy positioning and removing the heel from the system, even for the elderly. The design also simplifies application and removal of ultrasound gel, and daily cleaning.
The monitor-controlled transducer unit moves automatically, minimizing the operator's burden with easier operation.
Use for research
As a special tool for research, measurements can be performed with the foot stand unit removed.
※When measured without the foot stand unit, result values cannot be guaranteed due to unstable measurement position. Please be sure to perform these measurements under the responsibility of a doctor of a physician.
