The SONON 300C uses a paired tablet or smartphone with the Healcerion mobile application to display ultrasound images. Images are wirelessly transmitted to the tablet or smartphone from where they can be analyzed and shared with others. The SONON 300C allows user to transmit images and recordings to the paired tablet or smartphone via Wi-Fi, 3G, or LTE networks. The mobile application can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store. All collected images and data are stored in the mobile app and cannot be recovered if the app is removed and reinstalled.
The software enables ultrasound image capture and review, controls for time gain, dynamic range, display of mirror image, focal length, depth, brightness, contrast, linear/elliptical measurement, and image annotation, as well as storage and email transmission of images and videos. The SONON Ultrasound Imaging System allows the user to image in real time and review cine or freeze-frame images in a 2-dimensional scan format. The ultrasound imaging system also utilizes Pulsed Wave Doppler for determining the depth and location of tissue interfaces.
The Sonon 300C uses a 3.5 MHz convex array transducer that supports a max depth of 20cm and a field of view of 58.2˚. The Sonon 300C has an operating time of 2.1 hours in scan mode and 12 hours in stand-by mode. The battery takes 3 hours to completely recharge. Accessories for the device (battery, back-up battery, adapter, battery charger, and power cord) are included with device.
