1 Sonata2300 by Tetrad Ultrasound

2 Main Features Superb image quality and Doppler performance in the same class as midrange and some high end systems Highest performance system on the market in its class and price range Precision continuous dynamic focusing. Level of accuracy only found in high-end expensive systems Multipurpose imaging system addressing all popular modalities (Abdominal, OB/GYN, Vascular, Cardiac, Surgical, etc.) Unique high frequency imaging capabilities not found on even high-end systems (up to 20MHz upper band edge, and 15MHz center frequency) All probes support multi-frequency operation Extensive measurement and calculation packages for all modalities

3 Main Features (continued)
Advanced patient management capabilities Sophisticated report generation, including HTML formatting for web viewing Vast array of customization features, including designing your own measurements and calculations Windows 2000 based for unlimited application flexibility and application support Designed and manufactured in the U.S.A. Highest performance ergonomic probes in the industry, also made in the U.S.A. Probes and cables are lighter than most competitive probes to address repetitive motion injury concerns

4 Main Features (continued)
Elegant system appearance and design, usually expected only in higher cost products. Ideal ergonomic system size that preserves the ability to expand and upgrade system Advanced state-of-the-art imaging technologies: Tetrad Vector Core (TVC) high precision focussing module utilizing Tetrad’s Vector Modulator ASICs Tetrad Very High Dynamic Range Front End FlexiCore digital controller with very high density field programmable logic allows Tetrad to completely reconfigure many of the system building blocks in software. This allows for extreme versatility and protects against obsolescence Tetrad Advanced Tissue Discriminator (TADT) for high performance Color Doppler

5 Modes of Operation 2D Black and White Dual 2D Black and White
Color Doppler (Velocity, Variance and Power modes) Color Angio Doppler M-Mode with variable scroll speed Duplex Operation (2D B&W + PW Spectral Doppler), simultaneous operation available + variable scroll speed Triplex Operation (2D B&W + Color Doppler + PW Spectral Doppler) Support for curved, tightly curved, and linear probes (does not support phased arrays)


7 Serviceability No imaging system is easier to service than the Sonata
All electronics are contained in a mid-tower sized box that can be removed from system in less than 5 minutes Circuit boards can be easily removed from box for replacement, almost as easily as replacing a board in a PC Extensive set of diagnostic tools to allow troubleshooting of system. These tools will continue to grow and advance PC-based architecture and Windows-based operation allow for unlimited future options for remote diagnostics and software maintenance


9 Probes One of the greatest strengths of the Sonata is its collection of current and future probes Tetrad is one of the premier manufactures of high quality probes in the world.
