Based on its recent analysis of the portable ultrasound systems market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Terason – a division of Teratech Corporation– with the 2007 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for Technology Innovation in recognition of its development of two innovative ultrasound systems, the Terason t3000™ and the t3000 Echo™.
"The significance of these system lies in its best-in-class image quality and function that are comparable to the high-end cart-based ultrasound systems but only at a fraction of the price," says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Sangeetha Prabakar. "They are the world's only ultrasound systems powered by an off the shelf commercial PC."
The systems consist of two key components – a system-on-chip engine and a MacBook PC. An array of transducers easily connected to the systems allows clinicians to perform any ultrasound exam at the point of patient care anywhere.
