Below is a generalized description of this systems technology, specifications, features, and options. The below may not reflect the features and options available on units in our inventory.

Deliver consistent, high-quality performance in any clinical situation.

  • Clarify vascular enhancement technology: A breakthrough in 2D imaging to provide cleaner vascular structures
  • Extend imaging technology: Dramatically improves penetration to enhance image quality in the technically difficult-to-image patient
  • SieClear multi-view spatial compounding: Enhances contrast resolution for detection of subtle structures


  • Image quality is enhanced with versatile wideband transducers. Hanafy Lens and Multi-D array transducer technologies are designed to improve the focus of the slice thickness, resulting in exceptional spatial and contrast resolution.
  • The Antares system provides superior image quality, matched with enhanced clinical efficiency for a confident diagnosis in every ultrasound application.
The advanced ErgoDynamic design of the Antares system allows you to scan with ease and comfort-The unique orthorhombic system design provides:

  • A Natural Reach Zone where the most frequently accessed controls are easily accessed in standing or sitting positions, eliminating excessive hand motion
  • An Extended Reach Zone, the only solution to easily access peripheral devices, recordable media and transducer connectors without unwarranted bending and stretching
  • Lightweight, compact system architecture to facilitate system mobility within the hospital or clinic
  • The articulating arm and high resolution 19-inch f‌lat-panel display provide optimal monitor placement and enhanced image quality in all lighting situations
  • Hanafy Lens Transducer technology and Extend imaging technologies enhance penetration for reduced transducer pressure on technically diff‌icult-to—image patients
