February 9, 2011 – Terason is transforming the way Musculoskeletal Ultrasound is performed with the new Terason t3200™ Ultrasound System – the first fully-functional, portable ultrasound system designed specifically for the MSK professional.
The t3200 MSK Series is the first 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™ Probes 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 anatomy-specific exam measurements and annotations, will increase productivity and patient throughput.
Terason is proud to ship the first t3200 MSK Ultrasound System to Andrews Institute in Gulf Breeze, FL, a world-class institute for Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine. “We selected the Terason t3200 MSK Series Ultrasound System for the excellent image quality, the ease of use, and the support from the company. The image quality is uniform resulting in great images from the near to far field. Additionally, the system is reasonably priced, providing the ability to affordably utilize ultrasound to improve patient care,” said Dr. Joshua G Hackel, Director Primary Care Sports Medicine and Team Physician University of West Florida, Andrews Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Center.
“There are many reasons I’m passionate about the t3200 – image quality, comfortable broad-band transducers, easy-to-reach controls, intuitive open architecture, and easy image handling and report capabilities. These make scanning a joy, and generating appropriate documentation painless,” said MSK expert Dr. Steven Skurow, Medical Director at Terason.
