Taking Transducer Durability to the Armored Level
How often do transducer cables get rolled over, stepped on or twisted?
Talking to our customers, the response is “all the time,” “too often to count,” or simply “a lot.”
With an embedded metal jacket, armored cables protect your transducers from these common scenarios. By safeguarding electrical connections inside, armored cables help maintain image quality over the life of your transducer.
Optimized Imaging Experience
DirectClear Technology is a novel, patent-pending process that elevates transducer performance:

  • Improved penetration and contrast resolution: Unlike conventional SonoSite transducers, a more eff‌icient material has been embedded into the design that allows for the generation of more acoustic signal. In parallel, a ref‌lective layer has been added to reduce the loss of this signal, as it is transmitted into the patient.
  • Sharpened detail resolution: An additional layer has been added to provide a better acoustic match between the transducer and the patient, increasing the ability to resolve small structures and aid in your diagnostic confidence.
Elevated Color Sensitivity
Through a dualflex and thin lens design, combined with new advancements in image optimization, the HFL38xi was enhanced to increase penetration, clarity and color sensitivity- You can now better visualize nerves and vessels, whether it be for procedural guidance or flow analysis.
