Surgeons Get FIT for Breast Health with Terason Ultrasound

Burlington, MA – April 28, 2011 – Terason, the innovator and leader in laptop ultrasound technology today announced the release of the Terason t3200™ Ultrasound System – Breast Series. This fully-functional, portable ultrasound system is the first of its kind designed specifically for the Breast Surgeon.

David Kaufman, Chief of Breast Surgery at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Bethpage, NY stated, “The Terason t3200 is a dedicated Breast Ultrasound system that is truly in a class by itself, with state-of-the-art digital quality imaging in a portable laptop format that is fully integrated into an Apple MacBook Pro. Simply stated, the Terason t3200 is a unique system that not only is a fully functional laptop PC, but is a fully equipped ultrasound system as well. This unique feature, seen only in this Terason unit, will allow any physician to streamline their workflow, allowing more time to provide diagnostic and interventional ultrasound to their patients. One can scan and store images and reports directly on the laptop, plus they can be e-mailed directly to referring physicians. The image quality is outstanding and far superior compared to other laptop-style ultrasound units. In short, the Terason t3200 is easy to use and inexpensive to purchase. This system stands alone as best in category.”

The t3200 Breast Series is the second release in a family of Terason systems with a new wave of advancements in ground-breaking technology. FIT, exclusively from Terason, provides Flexible Imaging Technology using innovative new features to produce high quality images and simplify the ultrasound exam. All new X-Site™ Transducers and DDR™ provide top-notch image quality in both superficial and deeper targets to further enhance clinical confidence. A re-designed intuitive interface, with simplified measurements and annotations, will increase productivity and patient throughput.

“I selected the Terason t3200 Ultrasound System Breast Series for our center because of its excellent image quality, ease of use, and great customer support from the company – their knowledge in this application is quite extensive. The Terason system allows me, at an affordable price, to provide my patients with greater diagnostic confidence. The system is very portable; I can move from one room to the next and never turn the system off. The ability to take the system off the cart and to the OR in the Terason bag is also a very convenient advantage,” said Dr. Katherine Barton, Emanuel Cancer Center, Turlock, CA.

Terason is proud to officially introduce the t3200 Breast Series to the public at the American Society of Breast Surgeons (ASBS) Annual Meeting in Washington, DC.
