SonoSite claims that the portability and user-friendly operation of its point-of-care ultrasound systems are helping to promote ultrasound as a versatile tool for vascular surgeons.
Hamish Hamilton, a vascular surgeon at Chase Farm Hospital, Middlesex, uses SonoSite ultrasound systems as a diagnostic aid as well as for ultrasound guidance for endovenous laser ablation.
Mr Hamilton, pictured with a SonoSite MicroMaxx, explained: “I have only been using portable ultrasound for a few years, and I wish I had started earlier. I am not primarily a diagnostician, but the SonoSite systems have highlighted the benefits of point-of-care scanning.”
