Interson Touts USB Ultrasound Arrays for Telemedicine

Last week, Interson announced at the American Telemedicine trade show in Orlando Florida that their newest USB ultrasound arrays for telemedicine has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

If you’re not familiar, Interson is a market leader in open-architecture USB ultrasound imaging probes. The company announced its first USB ultrasound probe in 2007.

Interson’s new linear array probe and convex array probe enable telemedicine systems to provide ultrasound imaging by simply connecting the ultrasound probe to the USB port on the telemedicine system.

“These new array probes are plug and play for telemedicine customers as our SiMPLi probes and the telemedicine system providers support UVC. Our SiMPLi probes appear as a connected webcam to the system. Telemedicine can now realize all of the benefits of ultrasound diagnostics without having to connect to a floor standing or cart mounted ultrasound,” says Bill Wiedemann, Director Systems Integration.
