Patient's whole body data can be scanned by ultrasound volume images, and diagnosed remotely. This technology provide the separated process the step of scanning and diagnosis. So, Ultrasound expert in medical center diagnose the scanned image which comes from remote area by inexpert person.

Tomographic Way of Diagnosis - Smart Protocol: The 'Smart protocol' can suggest preferred diagnostic part of patient with instruction including 3D body images and appropriate scanned images. Nurses or non-medical experts can easily scan with 3D smart protocol.

Supportive Technologies: Easy viewing/CT style interface/Fast transmission/Image quality adjustment

Designed by[edit]
