Performance you can see with Microflow Imaging HD

MicroFlow Imaging (MFI HD/MFI) is designed to detect low-volume, low-velocity blood flow found in fetal, placental, uterine and ovarian vasculature. MFI overcomes many of the technical barriers associated with conventional methods to detect small vessel blood flow with high resolution and minimal artifacts.

MFI also maintains high frame rate and 2D image quality while applying artifact reduction techniques. 2D image subtraction, 2D blending and side-by-side display options offer excellent visualization versatility.

Remarkable dimensionality in color modes with Flow Viewer

Flow Viewer provides a “3D-like” rendering on every color mode used for flow imaging data (Color, CPA/CPAd, MFI, and MFI HD) to help better visualize fetal vessels and fetal heart structures.

The 3D appearance has its advantages in clarity and boundary definition over traditional color flow for vessel and fetal cardiac identification.

Enhance workflow with real-time image adjustments with AutoSCAN

AutoSCAN enhances workflow by automatically and continuously making real-time adjustments to achieve balanced brightness of tissues. By dynamically adjusting every pixel on every scan line, each image frame has individually adjusted image brightness on 2D, 3D and M-mode.
