SonoSite 180 Plus Ultrasound

SonoSite 180plus Ultrasound System
About the 180 Plus

The SonoSite® 180Plus ultrasound provides a sensitive and accurate quantitative assessment of blood flow, enabling the user to measure velocities and identify flow characteristics in arteries and veins. Doppler signals are exceptionally clean enhancing diagnostic confidence for vascular exams.

Tissue Harmonic Imaging.
THI is an advanced technology never before available in this price range. In THI mode, the system processes echoes at higher harmonic frequencies, resulting in clearer images. This enhances image quality with finer pixel size and better tissue differentiation. 
Pulsed Wave Doppler.
The pulsed wave Doppler of the 180PLUS™ system provides a sensitive and accurate quantitative assessment of blood flow, enabling the user to measure the velocity and fl ow characteristics in arteries and veins. Signals are exceptionally clear, enhancing diagnostic confidence for vascular exams. 
Color Power Doppler.
The 180PLUS system's color power Doppler is ideal for quickly detecting blood fl ow in vessels or for guiding the placement of a pulsed wave Doppler sample volume. It is a very sensitive mode that is less angle-dependent than velocity-based color flow.  Directional color power Doppler is also available on select transducers.
