What our customers say
Cardiovascular : e-Tracking
Until today it has not been possible to evaluate stiffness parameters by means of vascular machines, which required specific competence and organization. eTRACKING, developed by Hitachi Aloka, overcomes these limitations because the soft-ware is implemented into the normal echo-equipment and the parameters are obtained by a normal vascular transducer with a frequency of 10 Mhz. The technique is not time-consuming and the parameters can be obtained in a routine examination of the neck vessels.
