HONG KONG, Feb. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Medison Co.

Volume NT(TM) is the latest tool for nuchal translucency (NT) examination. Volume NT provides quicker and more accurate diagnosis of Down's syndrome by automatically finding the exact sagittal-plane of the NT, which is crucial in the detection of Down's syndrome. Unlike the 2D scanning, which is highly reliant on the position of the fetus proving difficult to find the exact mid-sagittal plane, Volume NT(TM) detects the true mid-sagittal view through the use of 3D technology.
The HDVI(TM) was also introduced at the Meeting as a breakthrough in 3D ultrasound imaging technology. The HDVI(TM), which uses the newly improved 3D matrix imaging process, is able to produce high resolution images with less speckles noise and clearer contrast than imaging devices based on 2D technology. Professor Jon Hyett, Head of Discipline Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, The University of Sydney, Australia, expressed an optimistic outlook for the new innovative device saying that "it has been particularly useful in the detection of subtle lesions and fetal brain defects as well as the examination of the walls and valves of the fetal heart."
First held in Singapore in 2004, this year's International Scientific Meeting was held in Macau from 25th-27th of February. Medison, a front runner in the development of ultrasound imaging technology, participated in the Meeting as a Platinum Sponsor. In addition to the Luncheon Symposium featuring talks by Professor Jon Hyett, and Georges Haddad, member of ISUOG's Education Committee, Medison hosted a Hospitality Suite Program, which included live demonstrations of the Volume NT(TM) as well as PC Training with the Sonoview Pro.
