ZONARE Medycal Systems Brings Zone Sonography Technology to U.S. Veterinary Market
Developer of Unique Premium Convertible Ultrasound /Platform Selects Steuart Laboratories as U.S. Veterinary Care Distributor
“We have been distributing ultrasound systems to the veterinary care market for more than five years,” said Gary Steuart, owner of Steuart Labs. “The z.one system really caught our eye because of its premium image quality and clinical versatility in a variety of clinical settings. We believe it is a natural fit in a veterinary practice due to its ability to function as a fully-featured, cart-based system within a clinic environment or, at the touch of a button, convert to a premium compact system when ambulatory medical care is needed.”
Zone Sonography technology has enabled ZONARE Medical Systems to bring its unique, patented Convertible Ultrasound platform to the industry providing the premium image quality and performance of a cart-based system as well as the portability of a hand carried ultrasound system at an attractive price to value ratio. Clinicians are able to convert the z.one ultrasound system, from a full-featured, cart-based system into a premium compact ultrasound system, optimizing its versatility in a variety of clinical settings, without sacrificing image quality or performance.
The z.one system’s Zone Sonography software-based architecture allows its performance to continue to improve as greater processing power becomes available. System upgrades can be downloaded via the internet, allowing for fast, convenient advances in clinical capabilities, enabling clinicians to cost-effectively maintain a state of the art ultrasound system. Veterinarians see significant benefits of the upgradeability and the ease-of-use features of the z.one system.
“Because of the upgradeability of the z.one system, it is very future proof allowing it to grow with our practice,” said Warren Armstrong, Technical Services director for Halton Equine Veterinary Care Services (HEVS) in Campbellville, Ontario. “Additionally, the technical side of ultrasound is much easier for us with the z.one system. The z.one system’s ease-of-use allows our practitioners to concentrate on diagnosis rather than knobology.”
HEVS clinicians are using the z.one system for equine musculoskeletal imaging and ultrasound guided procedures, such as facet injections. HEVS also uses the z.one system for biopsies, tendon mapping and advanced theriogenology (reproduction).
“We are excited to be entering the veterinary care market and believe the z.one system’s special attributes will offer veterinary practices an excellent solution for their ultrasound imaging needs,” said Mark Miller, vice president of sales and marketing for ZONARE. “We are pleased to partner with Steuart Labs in this effort. Their experience in ultrasound and the veterinary care market will be an important asset in serving these medical professionals.”
