Vscan Extend handheld ultrasound for helping in the treatment of COVID-19 patients
Vscan Extend™ handheld ultrasound can be used to help confirm and monitor progression of acute respiratory diseases like COVID-19.
It can help clinicians triage patients suffering from acute respiratory and cardiovascular disease with deep and shallow scanning for lungs and cardiovascular conditions with a single probe. It’s portability, ease of use, connectivity (DICOM to PACS or cloud storage solutions) and cleanability makes an ideal tool for diverse care settings such as isolation wards.
Systemic lung evaluation can be cumbersome
With Vscan Extend’s Lung Protocol app you can navigate through a systematic lung ultrasound exam. The app automatically activates your scanning preset and annotates each image acquired during the lung exam. You can assess the images qualitatively or leverage a scoring system. You can configure the lung protocol according to your needs.
