SAMSUNG Focuses on Expanding Point-of-Care Market with Launch of its First Tablet-based Ultrasound Device – UGEO PT60A

San Francisco – October 14, 2013Samsung Electronics America, Inc., a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd, today announced the launch of its first tablet-based ultrasound system – the Samsung UGEO PT60A. With its performance, slim and compact size and ease-of-use, the UGEO PT60A is designed to satisfy all applications in the Point-of-Care market – the fastest growing medical segment in the healthcare industry. This latest device is among a number of innovative medical imaging products Samsung is showcasing at this week’s American Society of Anesthesiology (ASA) annual meeting at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, Booth #2739.

The system received 510(k) FDA clearance in August and completed its domestic product review in September in time for the October launch at this week’s meeting. Equipped with state-of-the-art clinical technology, the UGEO PT60A features:

  • Industry leading, full 10.1 inch LED touch-screen monitor
  • Needle Mate™, for precise identification of the needle’s location
  • SDMR™, providing clearer imaging with an innovative noise reduction filter
  • SCI™, delivering remarkable spatial and contrast resolution

  • “We are excited to launch the groundbreaking Samsung UGEO PT60A ultrasound system, which is uniquely engineered to meet the evergrowing needs of the portable healthcare market,” said Brian Keith, director of sales for Samsung’s Health & Medical Equipment unit. “This system underscores our continued commitment to introducing increased innovation to the healthcare market through our health and medical business unit.”

    Simple Touch to Save Time
    Accurate, easy, fast. Using the one-touch measurement features of the ultra-portable and compact UGEO PT60A, exam results are delivered with maximum efficiency. The system’s Auto IMT™ and quick diagnosis report can help providers make critical decisions more easily. This, in turn, enables fast and timely treatment for the patient.

    The UGEO PT60A design can also help sports medicine specialists quickly examine injuries with easy access to common functions made possible by the sensitive full touch-screen and intuitive user interface. Size is again to the advantage here, as specialists can better attend to the injury by enhancing their mobility during the diagnostic exam.
