Today, ultrasound diagnosis is an indispensable tool for a variety of clinical applications, and users have high expectations that challenge modern, powerful ultrasound platforms. With the new brand ARIETTA, Hitachi Aloka Medical announces a new solution meeting these demands.

With more than 60 years' experience and know-how in imaging techniques, Hitachi Aloka has been a pioneer in developing reliable high-quality solutions for a broad range of ultrasound applications. "Arietta" is the name given to a short aria, the highlight of an opera. This new brand name evokes strong emotions often related to music with the ARIETTA platforms being designed to detect and display very fine details, helping us to "sense and visualize ultrasound". "The name reflects our commitment to providing accurate and reliable ultrasound diagnostic information that can be helpful in improving patient management," explains Mr Minoru Yoshizumi, President of Hitachi Aloka Medical Ltd., Japan.

ARIETTA 70 and ARIETTA 60 are two new diagnostic ultrasound platforms resulting from the joining of long common traditions; they combine the know-how developed in the HI VISION series of Hitachi Medical Corporation with the ProSound(*2) models of Aloka Co., Ltd. as well as the achievements from a close collaboration involving the Central Research Laboratory of Hitachi, Ltd. "Our company, Hitachi Aloka Medical, will continue to thoroughly investigate and expand the possibilities of diagnostic ultrasound so as to further improve 'the clarity of sound'. Our aim is to contribute even further to improve people's health and make visible what is concealed," says Mr Minoru Yoshizumi.

High Image Quality in a Compact Size

Though requiring very little space, these ultrasound platforms give highly resolved ultrasound anatomical detail due to the newly optimised generation, emission and detection of ultrasound signals, the improved signal processing, as well as the superb quality of the display. Using multi-layer crystal technology and an improved connector, the versatile range of probes achieves very high sensitivities from the enhanced signal-to-noise ratios, in addition to improved durability and handling. The sophisticated, flexible programming of the emitted and received ultrasound signals allows more precise control of the ultrasound beam, guaranteeing higher spatial resolution. Additionally, the new platforms are equipped with fast ultrasound-specific digital signal processors, supporting a great variety of application-related features and advanced data processing. In combination with the wide view angle and the excellent contrast of the IPS-Pro(*3) monitor, this powerful signal processing unit significantly enhances image clarity.

Fully Equipped and Powerful

The new ultrasound products ARIETTA 70 and ARIETTA 60 are ideally suited for many advanced applications, such as

  • Real-time Virtual Sonography(*4) for a side-by-side display of ultrasound and other modality results, e. g. CT or MRI
  • Real-time Tissue Elastography(*5), visualising tissue strain in real-time and giving local stiffness information
  • 2D-Tissue Tracking for quantitatively evaluating the movement and the thickening of the cardiac muscle.

Ergonomic and Comfortable Design

To help the user realize highly diagnostic images, ARIETTA 70 and ARIETTA 60 incorporate features that reduce stress and improve ease-of-use. Detailed ergonomic design that meets recommended industry standards supports a comfortable working environment:

  • Compared with previous models the new systems are lighter by 45%
  • 10,5" touch screen panel
  • 21" IPS-Pro high-resolution monitor
  • Two way multi-rotary encoders enable the adjustment of many functions in one control, significantly reducing hand and arm movements
  • The large palm rest at the center of the operating console is designed to give optimum wrist support
  • The panel height can be lowered to 70 cm, allowing the operator to perform lower extremity examinations with a safe, comfortable reach to the operating console.

The introduction of the two new ultrasound systems ARIETTA 70 and ARIETTA 60 by Hitachi Aloka Medical clearly shows the success of a close co-operation and its development potential: the new brand ARIETTA combines a whole mixture of experience and know-how to develop and create an innovative ultrasound platform.
