A Solution for a Variety of Ultrasound Applications
Hitachi Aloka introduced the first commercially available ultrasound system in 1960, developed the first electronic linear array scanning system in 1971, and introduced the world to color Doppler in 1983—revolutionizing cardiovascular ultrasound imaging.
In 1984, Hitachi Aloka introduced the first intraoperative transducers and firmly established our reputation as the leader in surgical ultrasound.
In 1991, Hitachi Aloka introduced both a rigid and a flexible laparoscopic transducer to pave the way for modern minimally invasive ultrasound techniques.
Today, Hitachi Aloka continues to set the pace in surgical ultrasound with pure digital systems for surgical offices and the operating rooms, and over 30 unique ultrasound transducers for a variety of surgical applications.
From our versatile micro-surgery transducer that squeezes into very tight spaces to our OmniPlane, multi-directional flexible laparoscopic transducer, we have virtually every surgical ultrasound application covered.
