Uscan is the world’s first advanced ultrasound for bladder care.

BOTHELL, WASH. – AUGUST 5, 2016 – Signostics, the global innovator in smart, highly reliable ultrasound devices, announced today that the new Uscan™ devices are now available for delivery in the U.S. Uscan is an intelligent ultrasound device for bladder care that offers high-definition sonographic imaging. It can also be used in additional applications such as kidney exams, image urological catheter and wall thickness measurement.

“We are very pleased to launch Uscan in the U.S., ensuring access to a new breakthrough in ultrasound technology that goes beyond the functionalities of conventional bladder scanners,” said Kevin Goodwin, CEO. “Using a small handheld device, Uscan’s dual capabilities of providing intelligent visualization coupled with high accuracy allows an enhanced understanding of patient information and more confident point-of-care clinical decision making.”

“Since its recent FDA clearance, Uscan has been successfully demonstrated at more than 100 hospitals across the country, as well as to physicians attending the American Urological Association’s 2016 Annual Meeting,” said Ryan Detzel, vice president of sales. “Having Uscan units now available in the U.S. allows us to fulfill existing orders and provide evaluation units for customers who wish to test the newest technology in the ultrasound space.”

Uscan offers the lowest cost of ownership in the industry: 5-year product warranty with no additional costs for calibration. It is simple to learn and use, and provides real-time user guidance, eliminating the need for extensive training.

Uscan’s integrated ultrasound mode is not found in any comparably priced systems, and can be used in a wide range of clinical and diagnostics applications, including urology, the emergency department, maternity, pediatrics, oncology, rehabilitation, aged care and home nursing. The system’s removable probe, high-resolution touch screen tablet and handheld displays make it ideally suited for on-the-go clinical care.
